I did meet you both once when you were up from Texas. I just want you both to know, that Shannon was truly loved by soooo many people. I didn't even know she passed until last week. It shocked me, and I miss her horribly. I am so sorry I was not able to attend her memorial service. If I knew sooner, I would have been on the next flight. I saw a prayer for Shannon every night and my only consolation is knowing that she is with, who she calls "the love of her life"...Willie! Her beloved dog that passed a while back. She is in a better place now; I know that sounds so cliche' but it's true. May she truly rest in peace and I will pray for your family as well through this upcoming holiday season. Be strong; I know that's what Shannon would want you to do ;-) You are in my prayers... Colleen Colleen Durran, October 25, 2006 I miss you Shannon. I'll never forget all the good times we had.
