Shelly and I were friends in grade school, wrote each other faithfully after my family moved to Houston, and then reconnected online several years ago. A beautiful, honest, bright, and positive friend whose memories I will always cherish. My prayers are with her family and all touched by her loss. May God give you peace.

You are in my thoughts and prayers. Shelly and I were in ultrasound school together. She was great and made our class all the more special. Shelly always added a lot of life to any room that she was in. I will miss her always. She really loved her family. She always talked about Braden, and she loved her best friend Brittany very much too.

Your Family and Shelly's friends are in my prayers. I know there are "No" real words, that can make this better, but we all need comfort and prayer. God is the comforter of the soul and the heart. Although our hearts will never be the same in this life without her. I know that through the blood of Jesus Christ, and acceptance of his Eternal Blessing. We will see Shelly, in all her "Glory", her perfect weight, she strived for, and out of the the lessons on Physics, and Ultrasound I gave her. The thing she took with her, and I seen her quote me on, was one of the hardest lessons for me to learn. I'm just glad our passing left her with a gem of truth and life. She quoted me on Facebook as Ms. Mullins said," Don't waste your skinny days thinking your fat." lol. She left my with lots of smiles on my face and an abundance of "Love" in my heart. The only peace I want find and share right now, with anybody that feels the pain of "my" loss of her, is She knew the Lord, she talked about her faith, alot. She shared Jesus with others so, on March 20th, Jesus shared her with the father and all Who were in Heaven. Altough the Earth is filled with many tears. Heaven was and still is Rejoicing over her Arrival. I know she had a deep love for all her family and friends. She spoke of all of you often, with such Joy and Pleasure. She had a sadnness in her heart, she packed with her daily for the loss of her father. I would see on facebook or talk to her when she would be filled with grief, because of the hole in her heart, that never completely healed. I would pray for God to comfort her and see her through those difficult days. I pray that same prayer for you, because some of you have a wider hole,, now. BUT KNOW FOR SURE! She is sad your hearts are broken, but she is looking down with her Shelly smile embraced in the arms of all her father and Jesus, probably saying something like," I 'm a smart girl, and I thought I had a pretty good picture of how beautiful, and perfect Heaven is. God, I hate to bother you, (This was how she started every phone call with me) but I just don't get why we just can't bring evrybody up her with us and just skip, this whole pain, suffering and tears thing. Let's just get to the good stuff. I is logical and I just don't get the purpose of the long way, I prefer the smarter route." She was very wise girl, her life was one of radiance and my Life has been enriched, greatly by knowing her. I was so proud of her and I will miss her GREATLY. God has made her whole.

I was extremely saddened to learn of Shelly's passing. I was first introduced to her while attending Lindsey Wilson College. She was a kind individual with a flair for creativity. I'm very blessed to have known her. My prayers are with her family.

She will forever be my shining STAR! I Love you Shelly Nichole! Always, Sarah (aka sunshine)

My heart hurts and I pray for all of you daily. The Lord works in mysterious ways and there's no way that anyone can explain. But I know how much Shelly grieved for her daddy and the only solace is that they are reunited. Wishing you sunshine and warm memories. Isaiah 40:31

My deepest condolences to and most heartfelt prayers for dear Shelly's family, friends, and loved ones. I had the blessing of knowing Shelly at Lindsey Wilson College, where we spent many hours sitting on the steps of the Humanities building talking, laughing, and contemplating papers we had to write. Shelly was full of sweetness and light, and she was greatly loved by everyone who knew her. I know she was steadfast in her faith and earnest in living that faith, always genuine and always sincere. The last time I saw her was right before she was headed home after graduating, when she hugged me and told me she loved me, and that is a memory I will cherish always. I love you, Shelly and will always remember you with smiles and great warmth.

My life will never be the same without Shelly in it. She was a sister at heart. She never met a stranger and accepted people for their differences.

Dustin - I am so so sorry for you. Shelly loved you with all her heart and really looked forward to her life with you. I know that a plant doesn't replace her in any way, it's the only thing I can do being so far away now. If you ever need to talk please feel free to contact me.

Tayra and Megan - Shelly was the amazing woman she was because of you all. She loved you and her Dad so passionately. Braden was the light of her life. I hope that as time passes the hole in your hearts will begin to heal. Shelly will always be watching over you.

I knew Shelly through my daughter Leigh Ann. They were college roommates and friends. I grew to love all of those girls. I loved to hear Shelly talk. I could sit and talk to those girls for hours. They were always so happy and uplifting. I went to visit them often. They also came to my home. My husband and I loved it. Last time I saw Shelly was at Leigh Ann's baby shower in Rockfield at my mothers. I'm so happy she came. It was an honor and privilege to know and love Shelly. My thoughts and prayers are for us all who loved her and will miss her .

I can honestly say that Shelly was one-of-a-kind. We had many classes at Lindsey Wilson College together, and spent time just hanging out, talking, laughing, contemplating, and even took a few trips. Shelly had a smile that would light up the room, and I will never ever forget her. She was truly genuine in who she was. Many thoughts and prayers sent to the family.

My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the Thrasher family. What an enormous loss to this world but a beautiful addition to Gods. Shelly seemed, from all the stories Freddie and Scott have told me, to be a very loving and caring soul. Shelly touched the lives of all who were lucky enough to have known her--what a blessing. Freddie and Scott you welcomed her to live with you for 3 years and cared for her like your own, that's one of the many reasons I love you both so very much. I wish all could be so kind. To all the family my condolences. With love, sis Lori

I am a minister from Louisville, and was traveling on I-65 last Sunday night. I came upon an accident and stopped to help. Others were there offering their assistance, so there wasn't much I could do except pray. I was so saddened to learn of the young lady's death. I searched on the Internet and learned who she was, and how I could contact you. I just wanted your family to know that my prayers are with you during such
a difficult time! May God's comfort and peace be with you.

My heart goes out to you in the loss of Shelly. I was friends with her and she was an amazing person. I'm glad that I got to know her, but its a sad thing that her life had to end so early. Its not an easy thing to have to go through. You all are in my prayers and will be in my prayers constantly.
Its going to take some time to get through this. I can't say that I know how long it takes because I don't, but I do know this, you just have to take it one day at a time. My prayers to you.

Knowing the love that was shared by Shelly and my son, Dustin, warms my heart. the sacredness of that bond will live on in his heart, and now in ours. I am grateful to have met the family that instilled such " richness of spirit" into such a gracious and sweet woman. May we all be comforted by our memories of Shelly and live our lives as well as she lived hers. Blessings to each and everyone. Love and Light

To Dustin,

My sincerest condolences to you... there are no reasons why and as you know life can sometimes take unexpected turns... I am just at a loss as to what to say, but know that I am praying for peace for you and for Shelly's whole family. I truly believe that there is a higher power directing our universe and the good are taken to help guide all the rest of us. Please know that I hope she is with her father and yours, who was one of my dearest friends here on earth... You will see her again, when it is your time. I am just so very sorry! xo

I have never met Shelly, but I was compelled to follow her condition after the accident. My son and I were in the vehicle Shelly hit. All I feel is sadness that such a beautiful person has been called home. I pale in comparison to such an accomplished woman and I can only hope that the plan He has and the reason we are still here will live up to the memory of such a loved and special person. From all of our family, we send you our deepest sympathy and prayers. May Jesus grant you strength during this difficult time.
