"Precious in the sight of the Lord
is the death of His faithful servants."

It's heartbreaking that she will not be present as her mission goes forward. There is no doubt that Shelly's influence and legacy will continue among the people for years to come. My heart aches for the loss that her family will feel, and I especially hurt for my friend.
Shelly's family selflessly shared Shelly with the world and my respect and admiration are great for them all. I look forward to when we will meet again in heaven one day, Shelly.
Through the grief, we rallied to be with our friend. She has faced difficult decisions, loss and pain that we haven't had to walk through for ourselves. I wanted her to know that she is not alone, she is surrounded by love and admiration. Our friendship has walked through seasons of joy and of difficulty, now through a season of grief and loss.
