Shelley held a special place in my heart. We shared the bond of cancer, but even more than that we could always find something to laugh about. Lawton and Jane you raised a wonderful daughter. And Wendy you had a special sister. She loved her family so much ! She left the world a much better place because of her love and her smile. She makes heaven look even better for me . I love you Shelley!
