    I met Shelley when we worked together at Skagit Valley College. We took accounting classes at the same time and then we both got jobs at PORTAL when it opened. After that program closed we lost touch and then periodically I would hear from her. Sorry to see this in the paper, she had a good heart.

    So grateful to have known this precious soul, to feel the warmth of her loving heart, to share tears of sadness& joy, to pray and read with this faithful friend. We shared stories of the past, talked of healing from life’s brutal sense of humor and rejoiced in the legacy she has now left behind, her beautiful, loving daughter and her precious family. I love you all and am here for you always. Rest in Peace my wonderful friend ♡♡♡
