Jeff:

How does one ever begin to express their sympathies over the loss of a parent? I know how close you were to your dad. I am sure he was very proud of you, especially when you stepped up to the plate and took care of him in his times of need. Please know that I am thinking of you and I am always here should you need me. As the old saying goes, he is gone but not forgotten. Remember all of the great times you had with your father, that will bring a smile to your face and get you through the hard times. Take care Jeff and please know that you are a wonderful son, person and friend. Take care and keep in touch.

To a wonderful family that i meet over 25 years ago . From day one Edgar Shelly treated me like if i was part of his family . I remember just sitting in his living room and he would be telling us stories sitting in his favorite recliner. Edgar would also try to give smart advise but we didnt know how to use his wisdom . The world lost a great man ; thanks for all your kindness ; generosity and love . I know you are in a better place now and at peace !!! See you in heaven . You will always be in my prayers . Love John
