Shelly's family














It is with profound sadness and a broken heart that I am sharing with  you that Shelly passed away last night, surrounded by her closest friends and family. Words can’t express the sadness and void I am feeling. In my heart, I thought she would beat this awful cancer. She was so incredibly strong and brave. I was fortunate to have spent last weekend with her. Shelly was hopeful until the very end. She was full of love and so unbelievably grateful for everyone who supported her in this journey. Unfortunately, things didn’t turn out the way we had all hoped. I am asking you to help me in making sure that Matt, Harry, and Sadie do not have to worry about finances for a little while. It takes a village to raise children and we need to wrap our arms around this beautiful family in any way possible. Please help me in supporting them during this extremely difficult time. From the bottom of my heart, I am forever thankful for all of you. Hug your loved ones tightly and love freely.
Love Lilly
