My husband and son coached Shelly's daughters in softball at Mona Shores. We's see her when she was our waitress at Whitlos. Shelly always filled us in on what her daughters were doing. Shelly was a nice, caring lady. So sorry to hear she died. Sending prayers for her family. Jim & Kathy Crago
Charlie & Sue and Family. We were so sadden to hear of Shelly's passing. We were so unprepared for the news. At this difficult time, may you find comfort in knowing that others share in your sorrow.
