  • Where does one even start? For so many years you were the little sister I never had! As a teenager, you would spend days, weekends and summers hanging out with me, Austin & Ciarra. We would be silly, laugh so hard we would cry and laugh harder for crying! Driving around campus wearing Austin’s Spiderman costume yelling innocent things at people and making them smile. You were always a listening ear when I needed to be heard! Life ended up takng us in different directions but we always managed to keep in contact and I thank you for being my friend!
    Your adult life sure did deal you some shitty things! Even with a broken heart you tried to carry on…the loss of Kerri, then your mom and then your dad, and other loved ones in between, the pain just became unbearable for you. Im so sorry that your time here on Earth was cut short. Please give my grandpa a hug & kiss for me. Love you Shell!
