Brian, I was so sorry to hear that Shelley had passed away. You have my sincere condolences. I know you both were intensely loved by one another, and she will be missed immensely. From the time I met Shelley at Trane I always thought of her as a special person and a shining light of kindness. When I found out the two of you were to be married I knew you were meant for each other, and that you would be very happy together. Now it is time to remember those good times you had together and celebrate her life. If you need anything at all let me know, I will think of her often and you as well. All you can do is move forward one day at a time and remember that just because she is no longer with us..., she is still here in spirit.
