    Shellie you were much loved by all who know you at the EMH Healthcare System. You were always smiling and had encourage words to say to those who passed you in the cafeteria, halls, floors or wherever. Your presence will truly be missed by many. Just as unique as your voice was, so are you. You are safely in His loving arms now. Much Love – Valerie Timmons
