This afternoon a girl I knew pretty well from college died. She had gotten cancer a few months after graduating and after many battles back and forth with it succumbed today.

Shelley was one of the people that I had the real honor of serving with on the SGA my senior year, and was a person with a great sense of humor and a real caring heart. She married a guy I played basketball and did radio work with as soon as she graduated, and they’d been married for…2 years I guess. I can’t begin to imagine what this is like for Billy, her husband, and I won’t pretend to.

Shelley was a really beautiful person and it’s a tragedy.

If you’re into prayer and that kind of thing, pray for Billy and their families. Shelley was a Christian so that might offer some of us solace, however weak that solace might be right now. If you’re not into praying for people, focus on your family and positive thoughts of them. Keep good energy with the people you love.
