I enjoy your company…visiting at the lake property and having a good meal. I know what you were going thru and I’m absolutely heartbroken to know you’re gone. Rest in peace my friend.
Monica and Charlie – My heart is breaking for you. There are no words we can say that will lessen what you are going through. I just read a little poem about God loaning us our children and that we should love them every minute that we have them. I know you did. May her memories and God’s love help you through this. Mike and Patti Norman
During our lifetime we meet people who make a lasting impression. Shelby was one of them. I do not exactly know when I first met her. What I do remember she was friendly, spirited and had a great wit. On my trips from Texas to visit her parents, Monica and Charles, I would get the Shelby update. Later it would be the Shelby and Micalah update, then the Shelby, Micalah, and Blake update. I loved hearing about Shelby as she traveled through the ebbs and flows of life. Why? Because she never gave up. Her kids were her priority in EVERY sense of the word. I had the honor of observing her as a young mom and three or four times as they grew older. She was laser focused on ensuring they succeeded. These two young adults are strong willed, hardworking, intelligent, enjoyable, caring, and devoted. Shelby also attended events on Charles’s side of the family, and she expertly assisted with Aunt Marie during her declining years. The last time I saw Shelby was three years ago. Charles wanted me to see some Browning artifacts which were placed in the City of Lee’s Summit’s Admin. Bldg. where Shelby worked as an accountant. She met us on the first floor, and right away we connected even though I had not seen her for a long while. In fact, I remember every topic we discussed. That was her effect on me. As we hugged good bye, Charles and I walked to the car, I commented what a great “kid” she was. He replied, “Yes, she is the best!”
Some people live to be ninety or more years, and do not accomplish as much as her. Just look at Micalah and Blake and you will see the evidence.
Shelby will be missed by everyone she has touched.. I am one of those people. Her son and daughter are the sweetest children I have been blessed to know and I continue to enjoy my relationship with Blake who has been an amazing friend through and through. I enjoy our conversations every time I see him. Shelby has done an amazing job raising them..
Monica, Charles, and family, I met your dear Shelby when my daughter Julie became a friend in grade school. Shelby was a delightful and funny kid. I was so happy when the 2 girls, now women, reconnected after so many years apart. Our hearts, thoughts, and prayers are with you during this sorrowful time.
I will miss you always. I am thankful I was able to know you and spend time with you through high school and into college. Love you. Till I see you again.
