I am truly sorry to hear of Shannon's passing. I know I haven't seen her in almost five years but I remember her fondly from our years at QND . She had a great spirit and was so kind to everyone. I will also remember her for her strength through her battle with cancer. She is a fighter and a true inspiration to others. I can only hope that I can have a fraction of the determination and positive attitude Shannon did in my life. Hugs to Brandon and their families.
