We Will Miss You Cousin Shelley

Yesterday, my sweet cousin Shelley passed away, after bravely battling cancer. Shelley is seen in the snapshot above, at the far left at a  family picnic in the 1970s. Shelley and I and another cousin, Barb, were all born in the same year, so we added to Parker Family Tree greatly back in 1951! Much of Shelley's younger days were spent in California. When Uncle Tom and Aunt Ev packed up the kids and drove cross the country to Ohio, back in the 1950s, we had such fun! We went to Cedar Point, had picnics, laughed, talked, and had great times making memories. Since Shelley's condition worsened, several members of her immediate family spent time with her, and once again made many wonderful memories. You were so brave Shelley. We will truly miss you!

Thank you for your kind words Nancy! Shelley and her brother Tom both passed away so young.
