"Here's a great idea people, don't take drugs in the first place."

yeah very good idea but understand people do things, and experiment whith things, not saying doing drugs is a good idea. Just be safe with what you'r doing because you never really know what your doing in life. In loving Memory of Shelby Howard, everyone knows your up there smiling down on us.

Well, one less druggy in the world. Who cares? Not me. OK so the family are upset. Just like the family of any animal when it dies. Monkeys, mice, cats, dogs, they all pine when one dies.

Yes, people are going to try drugs, but the outcome is rarely positive. I don't care if you knew her for 10 years, what difference does that make? Maybe taking too many drugs MAK3S U TYP LYK THiiS.

One less druggy in the world, and I am not even remotely bothered about how people will react to this. Boo hoo.

To the idiot (great) that posted this comment, I hope to hell you will never experience what Shelby's family or any other family has gone through. You are obviously a shollow heartless piece of sh*t to say something so ignorant. You will get what you deserve in life for being so ignorant and heartless. You obviously didn't know Shelby and what a beautiful, loving and bright girl she was and it's better off because someone like you has no right to be blessed by someone as special as she was and is. Also her death was a result of a stupid worthless piece of crap such as yourself.

Love Shelby's big cousin and May she rest in peace and look down at what an idiot you are. I love you Shelb's

You are a complete idiot and I hope you never go through a family member's death. I am out raged by your comment yet can't help to think of what a lonely miserable maggot you are.

Hey Mandi..
I read the post last night from "guest", and was also going to post in response to his stupid ass attitude...The crazy thing is, this "guest" is no better of a person than Stetzon is.

I personally did not know her , but it is sad when anybody dies from a drug overdose. She was far to young to be taken from her family and friends let alone have her life cut short. The individual who gave it to her will only get some time while she lost her life.

I didnt know her. But I feel for her but at the same time i dont.

I do because death is a horrible thing.

EHS and MVHS has had quite the experience with it.

I don't because... well, What do you expect (from the stories i've heard from close relatives and aquaintances) when you go to a party hosted by some older guy and take "E" pills? I mean dang, come on.

Oh well... this isnt a place for debate. My heart still goes out for her.

RIP.

Effing bullshit what some people need to say to make them feel better about themselves.
Shelby and I were not best friends but you know what, I know she didn't do drugs, I knew she wouldn't have done anything to harm herself. She's such a good outgoing person and for someone to say something so crappy about her is really irritating.

R.I.P ShelbyBaby.

And. You have no idea what even happened.
I mean, I don't even and I go to the same school as her with people talking about it all the time, or used to anyway.
What you see or hear on the news isn't always right.

A very long wait to all of us who were close to Shelby...
Stetzon Sharp was convicted in Shelby's death today at his 3:30 sentencing.
As the judge discussed the case with Stetzon, he stated that if he was able to do so, he would sentence him to 100 years for her death.
He was however sentenced to 100 months in the Washington State Prison system.
