I have no words other than I am so very sorry for your loss. My only advise is to remember the good times. Don't think so much about the hard times. Keep him as a happy memory rather than a sad one.

I just found out about the passing of Shelby. I had the priviledge of knowing Shelby for just a short time. He was a delightful young man with much promise. My sincere condolances to his family. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

My thoughts and prayers are with your whole family. I am so happy to have known him and to have been able to have him put such a huge impact on my life through my teenage years. He was and still is a good friend and he will live on through all of us. I will miss the times of us driving his stick shift truck to school, or him making fun of me when I was learning to drive in your families van. :)
Also, when he finally got his black mustang and the smile it brought to his face.
We had so many good times that we all shared together.
I am terribly sorry for your loss.

Deepest Sympathy,

Julie (Baymiller) Bice
