Shannon will always be my "little" cousin whom I babysat and watched grow up to be a beautiful woman.  She truly had a happy outlook on life, and I will forever remember her sweet smile and those dimples.  She was so proud of her boys and loved them so much - I pray her love for them will sustain them both the rest of their lives.  Too soon to be gone; it's still unbelievable.  I pray for blessings upon her soul, for her family, and for understanding and acceptance.
