Dear Shelly,

I was just thinking of you today because I was reading the horrible newspaper about the news of the 9/11 attacks. I wasn't prepared to see your name and all of a sudden I saw how your mother wrote such kind words about you. I know that you have such a kind heart and would want your siblings to share your losses. I miss you very much and I think about you all the time.


I am writing about you for my college essay. In rememberance of your beauty that once lit the world. I never knew you, but you stand out to me cause you are alot like me. I want to teach too and I love the fast paced life of the city and I am so absorbed in my work I never find time to sleep. Now you may rest. You never had enough time to light the world with all your glowing energy. But those who loved you most will find a way to show the world what you were worth.


We never really knew each other but we went to the same highschool and we were in the same graduating class. Even though our paths crossed, you will always be remembered. God bless you and I hope that you are now safe.


I wish I could just see you one more time shell and tell you how much you mean to me and how much fun i had when we in high school together..i see you all the time though in my heart and my mind...i miss you...love me.

From a cousin to a cousin...
A nickname will last forever,
Yet the one I have you is weird.
I will cheerish it together,
With both strength and no fear.
I take your name for comfirmation,
In rememberance for you.
I make full dedication,
To suceed just like you.
We all miss you YaYa(shelly) and I will remember you in my heart until I will meet up with you <3

I cry my self to sleep, for thy shall weep, i keep this in my heart, you will lead me to do smart and graceful things. My comfirmation name shall be Michelle for you... I miss you
Love, ur cousin
