    There won’t be a day that I don’t think of you. I won’t pass a flower or plant without remembering you. There won’t be a Holiday that will feel the same. I will miss our heart to heart talks, your overwhelming protectiveness for your family, your kindness and a heart bigger than Canada, your love for animals, your friends and every living creature. I will miss your hugs and that twinkle in your eyes when you were smiling from ear to ear. You were my ray of sunshine and will always be forever in my heart.

    My heart felt condolences to all of Shelby’s family and especially to Kris! I will never forget the day I met Shelby. I was so confused because everyone called him Grayson. Then I asked him kinda jokingly what’s your name…and so tenderly he responded both, but you can please call me Shelby. I felt honored. Then he always talked about his super hot husband and then Kris started working at Wells as well. You two are so awesome together and always lit the room up when you there. God called Shelby home for a reason none of us understand..I will miss him very much but will never forget his sense of humor, his compassionate heart and the love you two shared. My love and prayers to you all in remembering one of the truest souls ever.
