Shelly became part of our family over 30 years ago and so we are blessed to have shared many moments in his life. Always there to help carry in your groceries or wash your car.
We shared his love of Little Boy I and II and all the other "puppies" that he looked after, especially my mother's feisty little dog, Bagel.
We will miss you!
Karl, Beverli and Britton Badgley

Our hearts ache knowing you have been promoted to a bigger theater stage & we can't be with you now, but they also soar in joy knowing you & all Little Boys are reunited.
Mr. Silverman "Shelly", you welcomed me with open arms as your new neighbor with excitement, laughter & kindness. Bill & I are truly blessed to have known you as our true Friend & my favorite taste tester of fresh baked sweet treats.
God's speed, Sir. One of a Kind Gentleman that taught all to laugh more & worry less. Blessed we are in having known you as Friend.
