Shelbi Kay Elwell

Shelbi Kay Elwell was suddenly called back home to be with our Heavenly Father. She was a beautiful girl and touched the lives of all. Shelbi is the daughter of my cousin Melea. We went to her funeral services yesterday and Friday. I don't think I have ever cried so much before. That was the hardest thing I have ever done. Shelbi will be greatly missed and always remembered. Her sweet little spirit knew it was her time to return home, and for comfort she wrote letters to her parents, grandparents, three best friends and to her cousin Makenna. Look at those eyes, they just melt your heart! She is beautiful!
