An amazing wife, mother, and friend passed away today.

Shelly was a really great person. Her baby, Ella, is a few weeks older than Joseph. We met for coffee a few times, and I went to help her after one of her surgeries left her too weak to care for Ella on her own.

She had Crohn's Disease, and had to stop taking one of her medications while pregnant, which made her condition worse. After Ella was born, she had a couple of surgeries, and ended back in the hospital several weeks ago after I saw her.

Her husband, daughter, and family need all the thoughts and prayers you have.

You can donate to her family here if you can. I know the last year has been severely financially draining for them, besides the obvious emotional toll.

Shelly, you will be missed.
