Shelby, I will always remember your smile and your nod. I can't recall that you ever had anything negative to say about anyone or anything, ever. You had a kind soul and you were an amazing person, friend, son and brother. Thank you for teaching me a lot in life and in death. I'm privileged to have the chance to work with you and know you. Peace be with you and your sweet family.

Shelby, I haven't seen you since high school but by everything I've read its obvious you didn't change a bit. Ms. Chissell, you raised a wonderful person. He was the kindest, friendliest guy in the whole class. I don't think I ever heard him say a harsh word to anyone while he ran his button empire at school. Since losing my own son, all I can tell you is the pain will never fully go away but things will get better over time. God will get you through this, I'll be praying for you and your family.

When I heard of Shelby's untimely death, I was stunned. I have so many fond memories of Shelby at so many LSU games. He was also close to and always very kind to my son as he was to everyone he met. I will miss Shelby, the world has lost a great Tiger. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

Shelby, I will miss seeing that big smile, getting those big hugs and seeing you at LSU tailgates, away games and all over Baton Rouge and elsewhere. I will always remember our road trip to the 2003 LSU Arizona game. You were the best Shelby, and taken from us far too soon. Love you so much. Prayers and deepest sympathy to Ms. Dorothy, Michelle, Andrea, Jeremiah and the rest of the family.

I didn't personally know you, but from watching the news I can tell that you were a very nice person. When I first saw your picture - I just knew I saw you before and almost felt like I knew you. I remembered how nice and kind you were whenever I came to the box office to purchase tickets. May God bless your family/friends. Rest in Peace.
