Shelby I will never forget all the times we sat at worked and laughed over nothing, I remember how excited you were when you came back from your vacation and had fingernail polish that changed colors in the sun you put some on and we went outside right after so we could watch it lol. I also still have the elephant and pillow sash your bought me because you worried about me and said that if i rub the elephant it is suppose to give me good luck, I rub that everyday and i always think of you. My daughter had so much fun with you at the wedding she keep repeating everything you two did and said I am so glad she got to meet you it is very rare to meet such an amazing person so full of love and life she will miss you. I know you are in a better place and know we all have one great angel watching over all of us. My prayers are with your Husband and kids and all of your family.I will never forget you shelby you were one of the truest and greatest friends i knew. I luv ya and i will see you again one day.

Shelby was a great person with a mile long smile.. It was hard not to smile when around her..Please accept this poem. I love this poem and would like you to have a copy.Do not stand at my grave and weepI am not thereI do not sleepI am a thousand winds that blowI am the diamond glints on snowI am the gentle autumn rainI am the sunlight on ripened grainWhen you awaken in the morning hushI am the swift uplifting rushof quiet birds in circled flightI am the soft stars that shine at nightDo not stand at my grave and cryI am not thereI did not die.My prayer are with the famialy, Mother and Father. Hold tight to each other and you will get through this...Debby Swider

Shelby was an amazing person. She saw the good in everyone and everything. Her strength and courage was never ending. She took one day at a time and truly lived life. She was an astonishing woman. Shelby loved her family and friends and inspired everyone she touched. She was spirited, brave and thoughtful, funny and had a wonderful laugh. I truly believe Shelby is in a wonderful place and is watching over all her loved ones. For everyone grieving the loss of Shelby, please remember she is always in your heart.This is my wish for you:Comfort on difficult days,Smiles when sadness intrudes,Rainbows to follow the clouds,Laughter to kiss your lips,Sunsets to warm your heart,Hugs when spirits sag,Beauty for your eyes to see,Friendships to brighten your being,Faith so that you can believe,Confidence for when you doubt,Courage to know yourself,Patience to accept the truth,Love to complete your life.- Anonymous

I knew when I first met you that you were the right person for my brother. You were strong, funny, warm and most of all you had a strength about you that I knew would be your best ally. Throughout your illness you stayed strong for others and you had a way of making others feel so comfortable around you. We had some fun times together and you could make me laugh so hard it hurt. Now, I think of you and I miss you so much already, but I know that you did the best you could to fight and you will always be in my heart. I love you!April

I met Shelby at our family reunion in Northern Idaho. She was so sweet! Matt found a wonderful lady. Matt, I'm so sorry. Be thankful for the wonderful years you had together. I know your heart is hurting & you'll never get over the loss, but time will heal & it will get easier. Love your cousin, Syndi.
