To Shelby’s family,

Only God and myself know what a difference Shelby made in my life and my family’s life. When we met Shelby in August of 1981 we were not in church any where and of course you all know she asked to go to church with her. It changed our lifes forever. I was so happy to be able to see you all and be with you all for just a few days. We love you and Shelby will always be in our hearts and minds. I will be looking forward to seeing her again one day.

Love & prayers,

Becky Jack

WE WILL ALL MISS SHELBYS SMILE AND LAUGHTER. SHE WAS SUCH A SPECIAL PERSON. WHEN I MARRIED HER NEPHEW, SHE ACCEPTED ME INTO HER FAMILY AS IF I WERE BORN INTO IT. SHE WOULD DO ANYTHING FOR ANYBODY IN NEED. THANK YOU FOR ALL OF THE MEMORIES. THANK YOU GIVING ALL OF US THE GIFT OF YOUR LAUGHTER. TO WADE AND AMY MY DEEPEST SYMPATHY. TO SHELBY WE WILL MEET AGAIN AND LAUGH AS WE WALK THE STREETS OF GOLD.
