Our condolences to you and your Family Terry. May she R.I.P.

From: Mavis McKendrick
Relation: I worked with her mother-in-law for years and got to meet Shelley when she worked in her mom and dad's store and restaurant. I always found her friendly and helpful. I remember her mom's comment when Shelley met the love of her life. She said " i have never seen that girl stop smiling since she met him". And that was true.

Hello, I knew Shelley as a lovely gentle person, kind to everyone. I am shocked at her passing and want to express my sorrow for her loved ones. I look forward to seeing her in the resurrection. My love and prayers are with her family her made her so happy.
