We have known LouAda for about 16 years. Undoubtedly, she handled her diagnosis of cancer with more grace than anyone we have ever known. She remained energetic, warm, loving, and remarkably strong. In fact, she was one of the strongest women we have ever known. She endured countless treatments and attempts to prolong her precious life. She leaves behind a legacy of love and hope for all the rest of us, and she will forever remain in our mind as the model of grace under difficult and painful circumstances. We will miss her. With love and deepest sympathy for her whole family, Virginia Barber, M.D. and Diane Boland

Mrs. Shelton was a preschool teacher to both my sons. She was a caring and wonderful person. We all loved her and that beautiful smile. So sorry to hear of her passing. Teresa Jones Barker
