    Shelley was the first person to welcome me with open arms when I arrived in Baton Rouge. I remember her kindness and how she was selfless with her time and always had a shoulder for me to cry on. I will miss my sweet friend. Rest in heaven hun. Til we meet again♥️

    I am so sorry to learn of Shelley’s passing. I am also sorry I can’t attend the service because I will be out of town that day. Please be assured that she was a special daughter-in-law in my heart. Condolences to the family, especially her gorgeous children, her parents and siblings.
