    This breaks my heart. Shelley and my daughter were friends in Jr High in Jackson Ms.. Tbey had reconnected through fb in 2020 not long before my daughter moved to Heaven due to complications from hip surgery. It was so hard to tell Shelley. I actually spoke with her on the phone . I had hoped to visit with her. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. I have a few sweet pics of the girls when they were about 13. May God hold you all close

    Shelly was always kind, accepting, respectful and friendly to Johnnie and I when we were in her company and reached out many times to console me after the death of my son Primo. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. May God hold you in his hands and surround you with peace during this tragic time.

      Brad I am so sorry for this huge loss for you and your family. I hate this for you (I REALLY DO). This shocked me when I heard. I just ran into Shelly at Walmart at the beginning of last week. We’d run into each other often around Central. She was always so sweet to me expressing her love and concerns regarding Hailey. She was the only one that did. I’m sure going to miss seeing her around. I will be praying for your peace and understanding of this traumatic moment in your life. I still consider you to be FAMILY, (you’ll always be my BRUD-N-LAW). Stay strong Brad, I’m a phone call away if you ever need someone to talk to. 🥰🥰 {on a happier note > CONGRATULATIONS ON THE UPCOMING GRANDBABY!! Grandkids are the BEST and I know you will be an awesome Pawpaw. Charles Ray would be super proud of you, he always was. Love ya!!!ttyl
