I felt a moment of unbelief when Shelley Hanscom told me that she had died. So many memories of her and the family when living in Pilgrim Village. The many ways she supported her family and graciously met every challenge sent her way was amazing. Her children then supported her and gave her so much joy. Prayers and thoughts to all the family In this difficult time. Rose Haley
