  1. So comforting to know that Shalon accepted Christ as her savior at age 8. It’s the only thing that matters now.
    I pray daily for you Cindy & Dean.

    John 14:6- Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
    I John 5:12- He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

  2. Shalon always wore a sweet smile and was such a positive, happy person. My sympathy to all her family that she dearly loved. May the Lord comfort you. I will miss this brave lady.

  3. We extend our thoughts and prayers for sympathy and comfort
