This evening

Arlene here...Amy just called as she left Shelleys.
(I know that the Mingos are also reading this blog..which is wonderful. If you would like me to post anything please email me and let this be a forum for your family - are hearts are tender for you, also.))

Bev - Shels Mom - is with Shel as is her sister Jenni and brother in law Heber.
Jordans sister is watching Chantel and Mason.
Rees - Wade and Amy - Shels cousins have been with her.
(Amy commented to me that she felt such strength from these men cousins, Rees was in a white shirt and tie....it just seemed to represent Priesthood Power.)

Very supportive and helpful.
When Amy arrived some relatives that live close by from Gary Morgans family were there rocking the baby, Landon, to sleep and giving neck massages to Shel.
Very kind. Very comforting.

Ryan, Shelleys twin brother has been working in Florida and is on plane coming to Shelley. He will arrive on Tuesday around noon.
Shelleys' father, Gary, and brother Jared - are enroute from Colorado.

Shelley is reading and re-reading every comment and studying every picture on this blog.
She is so grateful.
Any of you that know Shel know, she isn't so much for computers - never even checks her email - but she has treasured every comment that has been posted and is finding great strengthen and support from you. THANK YOU.

This is a wonderful place to share memories or pictures. In additon to any comments you would like to share - if you have pictures you would like to have posted - please email them to me and I will post them.

When decisions are made about the funeral - this will be where it is shared, so check back.

Okay...now this.
Amy, Shelleys cousin, and our daughter called as she left Shelleys.
She said this:
"Shelley is amazing. She knows she is in shock but I am amazed at the clarity and strength she has...you can tell...she has angels about her helping her."
"She just seems to have a sense of peace and direction."
"She is amazing Mom....she is amazing."

  2. Shelley,

    What an amazing man Jordan was. I know he is now your angel from above watching over you and your sweet babies. All my thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of sorrow and grief. The Lord will be with you and watch over every step you take.

    Love, Melissa and Rick Hansen

  3. My Miss Shelley,
    I sit her this morning just praying over you and those babies! I just remember when we spent so much time together and how excited you were for Jordan to get home from his mission. How everytime we talked about him your face would just light up. I think about what a good Daddy he was and how supportive he was. I know in the days to come are going to be some of the hardest you have faced. Just to know that it is ok to cry and not understand why! Just know that you are such a strong and beautiful women, confident, and such a good mommy! I know you have a strong faith and lots of family! We will be here for you and I promise you that I will be praying for you daily and checking on you! Please let me know if you need anything! Lots of love to you and everyone who is hurting!
    Kristal Kendall and family

  9. Shelley and Regina,

    Shelley, I have met you but maybe once at Brigham's baby blessing. I am Ron Hahn's sister and I live in Lehi too. I had no idea that you guys lived here also. I just wanted to tell you how sad we are to hear about your husband. I can't even imagine how you must be feeling right now, but it sounds like you have a lot of family support! We pray that you will be comforted and find the peace that you so deserve!

    I was so shocked and devastated to hear that you had lost your husband and 2 sons. You are such a sweet lady and I hope that you too can be comforted at this time. We love your family and pray for you all.

    Love, Kimberly (Hahn) Nelson
