  7. Clay, Cole, Nick, and Sophie – I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. Shelley was an amazing person and her strength will live on in each of you. She always welcomed Ruth into your home and your lives with open arms, accepting her as one of your own. And when our family was in need, she inserted herself without waiting for me to ask. She was just there, with her unique balance of compassion and directness, giving me the guidance I needed. I firmly believe she changed the course of our family’s life and I will never forget that. There is a special place in Heaven for those who suffer on earth and still have the heart to empathize with others. And now that Shelley is there, it’s decorated perfectly! We love you and hope you will find peace knowing the impact Shelley had on the world around her.

  13. Clay,

    I’m so sad to hear about Shelley. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. I don’t even have words to express how I’m feeling – just know – even though we have not stayed in touch all these years – I miss those fun times as cousins way way back. Kay and I won’t be able to be at the services, though I really want to be there. Maybe we can get together and spend a little time catching up. With much love,

  14. Dear Clay and Sophie,

    You are in our thoughts and prayers. We are so very sorry for your loss. I will have fond memories of Shelley and our last time together volunteering for the Dallas non-profit, Attitudes and Attire, several years ago. I have never seen her so happy and so in her element, learning more about the organization and getting herself involved with helping the women from the military trying to get back into the workforce. She was a strong spirit and I know for sure that these women she helped benefited greatly from her wisdom. Please find comfort knowing that Shelley inspired these women and that she did this with such grace and a genuine heart. Sincerely, Minvi, Steve and Jaden

    God bless.
