Shelley was a wonderful and caring lady. She had a servants heart and would do anything for anyone no matter the cost to her. She loved her family more than anything. She did a tremendous amount of help and servitude to victims of domestic violence. I am very thankful to have known Shelley. She was a great lady. Her family and friends are in my prayers.
