    Our sincere condolence to the Family. Although ‘time and unexpected events’ overtake us including losing a loved one in death, we have the wonderful prospect of seeing our dead loved ones again. Ecclesiastes 9:11; John 5:28

    Shelly; you were one of the first real friends I had when I moved here. You were always so sweet and caring and fun to hang out with, we have made so many memories together and would never be just bored sitting around. You'll always be my peaches. Keep rockin that rocky raccoon up there in heaven beautiful. You are missed and loved greatly. See you again someday.

    Dearest Rosalie,
    There are no words that I can impart to comfort you at this time. We are so sorry about Shelly and will miss her so. I remember the day she was born, I was so happy to have a girl first cousin on the Palumbo side of the family! Our thoughts & prayers are with you, Mia, BJ & family. There is a hole in our family that will never be filled. We will cherish all our memories of Shelly in our hearts. Love always, Karen & Doug

    Our hearts hurt over her unexpecting passing. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends, Shelly will forever be missed by us. I, Stephanie, met Shelly in 2013. I fell in love with her outgoing, positive, humor and loving nature. I'm going to miss all the times we hung out together drinking a cold one, singing karaoke and joking around. We love you and miss you Shelly.

    I’ll forever love and miss you Shelly. Thank you for all the amazing memories we all made together, and for letting me grow up with you and Mia. I’ll never forget the corny jokes you always made and how you would stick up for me, even if you didn’t realky know what was going on. I love you and miss you more everyday.

    Shelly, you had the biggest heart I have ever known and you never met a stranger, everybody that met you loved you! You would talk their ear off about any subject they wanted to talk about. That is just one of the reasons you are so loved. You are a wonderful mom and loved Mia so much, as she loves her momma. My kids love you and of course you know you are my world, my heart and soul. I love you so much, always have and always will. I miss you so much, there will never be a day you are not on my mind and one day we will be able to be “tweedle Dee and tweedle dumb” again and do all of the silly fun stuff that aggravates everybody but us. I love you Shelly

    My deepest sympathy to Mia, Carol, BJ and family, Christian, her mother and the Babin family.
    Shelly was lovable, silly and goofy all rolled into one.
    She loves her baby girl with everything! But how could you not, it’s a mini Shelly!
    I remember when Shelly opened her own Real Estate office and had her first picture banner made, she thought she was a movie star!! I was as proud of her as she was of herself.
    I’ll remember the confidence you had in singing karaoke, as painful as it was sometimes.. you gave it hell!!
    I’ll also make sure Mia and Alfred continue to have their silly dance offs to entertain you!
    Rest In Peace beautiful! I love you!

    Rosalie, we met in the 1st grade at St. Anthony's. We lived in the same neighborhood as children. We made a bond that time can not erase. We went to school together for 8 yrs. We knew each other through highschool, While I never met your daughter, I am sure she was a beautiful angel and a blessing in so many ways to you and your family. My heart goes out to you, my dear friend. I wish you peace, tranquility and love never ending during this very difficult time. Peace and love, my friend.
