I graduated with Shannon in 81'.  Even though I never knew her as an adult or after HS, I knew she was special all the way back when we were in Jr. High together.  What a tragic loss and it  re-emphasizes to me that life is meant for living and it truly is short and fragile.


God bless you Shannon.  Nate, you and your family are in our prayers.
