    Often times when people pass away, visitors can be heard to say, “She was one of the nicest people I have ever met.” In this case it is absolutely fitting to say that, Shannon was one of the nicest people I have ever met. We will miss her dearly. To Melissa and Tyler, Shannon and Bert have done a great job with you two, as I have seen you develop into two fine individuals of intellect, conscience and promise and I know is she very proud of you both. Love to you all…. Shannon, Bert, Melissa and Tyler.
