Psalms 143:8-12 DESCRIBES U SHELBY 2 A TEE. HOW U WOULD GET UP N THE MORNING AND SIT AT YOUR KITCHEN TABLE AND LISTEN 2 FATHERS CREATIONS AND WATCH THE FLOWERS U PLANTED SWAY BACK AND 4TH FOR THE CREATIONS OF LIFE 2 FEED ON. U ALWAYS HAD A WAY OF MAKING THINGS LOOK GOOD, ALWAYS THERE 4 THOSE N NEED AND ALWAYS GIVING FROM YOUR HEART NEVER EXPECTING ANYTHING N RETURN, BECAUSE U HAD THE FAITH THAT FATHER WOULD TAKE CARE OF YOUR NEEDS N RETURN. FAITH,BELIEF AND THE TRUST THAT FATHER PUT N YOUR HEART WAS AMAZING 2 SEE. I DO BELIEVE U GAVE YOUR SOUL 2 THE LORD OUR FATHER. PROOF N THE WORK U DID WITH YOUR SINGING AND THE PLANTING OF SEEDS U LEFT BEHIND 2 GROW, AND 2 QUOTE A BIBLE VERSE JUST OUT OF THE BLUE. IF I CAN'T LEARN FROM YOUR LIFE, THEN I DIDNT LEARN NOTHING... BUT I DID. IM PROUD 2 CALL U MY (FATHER-IN-LAW) AND IM GLAD U GOT 2 GO HOME. AND I KNOW FATHER IS PROUD OF THE WORK U DID FOR HIM. SALT LIFE, U HAD IT TILL THE TIME FATHER ASKED U 2 COME HOME. PROOF OF THE MANY BLESSINGS FATHER PROMISES AND WITH LOVE!!!! LOVE YA ALWAYS.

Dad...this is so hard. I'm so happy that you're in Heaven but my fleshly body is so sad. I will always remember the good. There was never any bad. The clearing of the land the trips the dinners everything!! I will NEVER forget what a wonderful and amazing inspiration you have been to me. You've taught me so much about God and being saved. I love you so very much
