Shelby, I was shocked to see this. I have many many memories of your Mom — as you know. She was a force of nature, and I know that you both struggled to find the right balance in your relationship. Nevertheless, I know with absolute certainity that you loved each other. I hope both you and Minnie are at peace. XXOO, Jenny
