    She is truly a great example to me of a Christ-like person. She was so good to my parents in their later years. As a child, I remember your folks coming to our house and playing Rook with my folks and other couples. Special memories. 💖

    I remember Sister Shay so well. She was always quiet and serene, a wonderful mother and so spiritual. Every step of her life (when I lived in the ward and knew her) was in following our Savior. She lived her life in Service to our Savior and raised her children with such love and devotion. I am certain that her reunion with her Eternal love was incredibly splendid. Love, Beth
