    candle 2Shannon was definitely one of the good ones! He is one of the best men I have ever met. He had the biggest heart!!! He was kind, and selfless. Regardless of what was going on in the world or just normal stresses of the daily grind He always had a smile on his face. When he was home with his family he was happy. He was truly one of those people that could just drop everything at the door that weighed heavy on him and just enjoy the company of his loved ones and appreciate what many of us take for granted.

    In life let us rejoice; in death let us rejoice…for the sorrows we feel today will be rewarded tomorrow with dancing and laughter and ultimately a joy beyond what we can only imagine. Lord, welcome Shannon to your arms and keep him safe, free from pain and suffering, full of joy, laughter and yes, dancing.
