Shelley was the most kind hearted and loving soul I may have ever met, she did everything 100% & with her whole heart! More times than not she was found staying after work (no pay) to make sure the people she took care of were given the care, and the LOVE they deserved! Holding their hands to keep them safe as they passed, or just to sit and listen as they told their stories (once again) Shelley is such a beautiful soul I saw such love in her and everything she did don’t think I have met anyone like her, rare is an understatement but blessed is too! Thank u Lord for blessing me with her in my life the short time that u did! And allowing me to meet her beautiful children also! They too are just a small bit of the beautiful person shelley was, and now her soul is set free to once again transcend into complete knowledge. May she be one with her loving creator. Bless her
