Survivor Stories / Tributes

Cathy Shelley

Personal Description:


My mother was an amazing woman! Every person who came in contact with her was lucky. She thought of everyone but herself and fought Cancer with a smile till the end. My mother and everyone else was cheated because of her short stay on this earth. She passed on August 12, 2007. The day after her 58th birthday. There isn’t a day that goes by that our family doesn’t shed a tear or miss her. My sister and I share her legacy with anyone who will listen, and Holly has her beauty while I hold her laugh. Holly is proving to be just as wonderful as a mother as my mother taught her. She would have been the best Grammy to newly born Grace, May 14th 2007. She took in her son-in-law Ryan with all her heart. I know from heaven she is watching over all of us and wishing she could have met my husband. Knowing my mom, she definetly is having a say in what is going on in all our lives. :)
