“Karly, your mom, Danny and I were very close in ages and we were more like brothers and sisters rather than just an uncle. I spent as much time at my sister Marion's home when we lived in California as I did at my own. What I remember most being with both Shannon and Danny were our times at the dinner table. Your mom was quite a noisy eater and would upset both Danny and I. Danny would cry and say " Shannon is smacking ". Ron and Karly please accept my condolences. Uncle Wes”

“Ron and Karly,
How do you express your feelings about losing a wife, a mother and a friend? Karly, I know that we talked about it and we both felt that we lost her long ago. But, I know that we all had hope that our Shanny would come back to us. At least she is at peace now. I hope that the two of you find some peace and closure as well. I so wish that I could be there to give both of you a big hug. I guess that a virtual one will have to do. Topper and I love you guys so much and our prayers are with you.”

“I was very sad to hear this news today. Shannon helped me through healthy families when I was younger with a new baby. She brought me food, formula, and a friendly listening ear. She always told me stories of her family and how special they were. She pushed me to do my best and I always knew she was their for me as a friend/support. Back at this time I thought I’d never become a Nurse to support a child, Shannon always pushed me towards my dreams, I wish she could see me now and know how much she impacted my life. Prayers to her family during this time, blessed are those who mourn for they will be comforted (Matthew 5:4) ”
