    Dear Garney and Shelley’s family and friends,
    I am so sorry to hear of Shelley’s passing. I only met you (Garney and Shelley) both during the Cancervive ride in 2012 but you were both so friendly, full of life and pictures of health. My daughter (Ella, 5) will be festooned in purple (her favorite colour!) next Tuesday as a tribute…and I’m sure she will insist that I wear some too.

  23. Garney, Sandra and all your family and friends: I want you to know that I am thinking of you. I was with Shelley and Garney on that first Spring Fling when Shelley thought she could not do it and Garney coached and teased and loved her up every hill. The bond they had was tangible and gave us all joy and laughter. That memory will always be there for me and for you, too.
