    We were saddened to hear of Shannon’s passing. My sister in law, Marlene Chorny, kindly let me know. My family lived across the street from Brumwells for many years and in my early teens I babysat Shannon and the boys. I was delighted to catch up with Shannon and Jean about five years ago at a family celebration. Please accept sincere condolences from myself and my husband Gene.

    Warmest regards

    Cam,
    I am so very sorry to hear about Shannon. We had only heard recently from another neighbor on the block of her passing. She was far too young and it’s so unfortunate that things did not get discovered earlier. Hope you are doing well. Take good care and condolences to all of the family.
