Coming up on 4 years since Shelley was killed. Missing her just as much now as I did then.

Ms. Nance,
I didn't know your daughter personally, but I can tell she was an amazing girl, with amazing friends, an amazing family and an amazing mother. I know how it feels to lose someone close to you, and I know it hurts. A lot.
I know you don't know me, but I'll be here for you.
I'm so sorry for your loss. I really am.
Shelley will forever be missed.

thank you so much. It will soon be two years since she was killed and it still feels like yesterday. The hurt never goes away.

we still care. :heart: she was a beautiful girl with a big heart and an aspiring artist with loads of talent.
may your heart mend swiftly as parents should never be the ones to outlive their own children. this is indeed a terrible tragedy.
though it's a shame that someone with such amazing potential and shining personality has been taken far too soon, know that she is never really gone or forgotten so long as she is kept in memories and hearts, as i know she is.

Your daughter was a wonderful person. I'm so sorry that I can't trade places with her.

I was looking thru my AKON photos with this year's AKON this weekend and I'd been meaning mention this before, but Shelley was the one who introduced me to AKON. I have some photos of her I took last year and was wondering if you'd like them. Sorry, it took so long to say something about this. Thanks for your time. We all miss her dearly. :)
