    I must say that the day I met Shelly north of Miami back in 1990 I was nervous. I drove to Broward County for the meeting. When I saw her face the feelings just went away. I met Heather, Trent and her husband of the time. Her and I set out to spend time together. We had a blast…a lot of laughs and Q and A’s. We were more alike than I could ever have imagined before that point. She visited Gainesville FL. The kids were there as well. Again we had a blast. Away from that we had a lot of phone conversations. What a woman and sister. Shelly always smiled and she laughed so much it was contagious. Now that she has passed from a debilitating mental condition my heart hurts. She will forever be in my heart and soul. God Bless You Shelly R. McCool. I miss you.
