Evidently she was at the JW Memorial last weekend.
This is her FB post for those of you not on FB:


Hey yal🙏🏾
I've been quiet cuz I needed Time.
But on my flight home from Minneapolis while looking out at the clouds....this came to me and I had to write💜

Time 2 go.....
As I look out my window seat
Minneapolis flashbacks come to me,
Rehearsals, parties, hangin & more...
U let me Into your Heart & it's U I Adore.
Though Ur gone from this Physical realm,
Your Spirit Lingers On,
So Funny, So Gifted, So Giving, So Strong.

Thank u Prince for the Journey, the Love & the Lessons,
U were more than my Partna', U were My Blessing💗
Sunday's service gave my heart a hug as U knew it would, I Feel a New Peace and that is Good.
I will Honor U in death as I did In this Life,
I'll Do NOTHING to tarnish that Beautiful Light.
I dropped by Paisley.....it wasn't the same,
But I found comfort in the mementos that bore your likeness & name.
U were loved by SO many... Every Color, Every Creed, U touched their Souls and planted MANY Seeds.
So Sleep well my Sweet Prince as I start a Chapter that is New,
A lil scary, but I can hear ..."Wheels up Shel....We Got Work to Do"

U chose ME for this ride, 2 be Right by YOUR side, My mentor...my Guide.... Can't wait 2 C U on the Other Side🤗💜
We sang this together & now it REALLY rings TRUE,
NOTHING, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING....Compares 2 U 💗

"I'll Do NOTHING to tarnish that Beautiful Light."

The fact that 99.99999999% of the stories and anecdotes coming out about Prince since his passing have been nothing but positive, gleaming, and speak to things that we as fans could not really know is what keeps me grounded in all of this. It says alot about the man that pretty much everyone that can tell a story or provide an anecdote, only have very positive and uplifting things to say.

I commented on Shelby's FB message I was sharing this here since some orgers don't use FB. Maybe she'll pop in one day. She's a lovely soul and my thoughts and prayers are with her as she grieves, just as they are with all of you who loved him.

Can't imagine how it feels to go to Paisley Park and he's not there. The emptiness must be overwhelming.

That was beautiful thanks for sharing.
Baby, you're a star.

Meet me in another world, space and joy

Very sweet and beautiful. Hard to read. Just hurts so much. Him being gone is affecting so many. This man was just loved. He was just good. He was just all that is beautiful and right. Thanks for sharing this. I don't even have a Facebook page, so I would have never seen this. My heart just hurts. Prince, you are just missed by sooo soooo soooo sooo many. sad
