Dear Scott and family,
My deepest sympathy for your loss. Shelly was always pleasant whenever I visited Triangle Candy, and that was a real bonus after calling on some of the other customers who were never pleasant to deal with. I hope that you have many wonderful memories of Shelly. May she rest in peace. Scott, I hope you are in good health, and can enjoy many good times with the rest of your family.
