Shannon, I knew you as a childhood cousin. Sadly, your passing has taught me that as the beautiful grown up adult,wife,mom,grandma sister,cousin I didnt know you as all those things. From what I am reading you were amazing to know and lived a good life. For that, now my loss will be forever a heavy burden and sorry will never seem enough. I allowed lifes distance to keep me from knowing the beautiful and talented young woman you became. May you and God teach us all that time is way too short to allow the busyness of life keep us from learning and growing together. Family is so important yet we let things get in the way of staying family. I pray God will grant your family and friends who knew you best a peace which surpasses all understanding. This makes no sense to them now, but as time passes they will come to understand that purpose in just how wonderful it was to have you and to know you as only they could. Rest in peace sweet Shannon, I look forward to seeing you again one day. ❤
