We were so sorry to hear about Shannon. He was such a joyful light. Not many people can make my husband genuinely laugh, Shannon was one who always could. This picture is exactly how we will always remember him. Garry mentioned something about the first time they worked together at ANO: While beginning to cut something, Shannon said ...'Rule of thumb is....At first Garry heard only thumb and thought Shannon had hurt himself. As time went by, Garry remembers Shannon started every job with his insight on 'The Rule of Thumb' - because this memory made Garry laugh I decided to share it. You may know we've been extremely busy due to illness in our own family the past 8 + years, we have been out of touch with everyone. Please remember, we are just down the hill and available to visit whenever you feel like having company. We'll be in touch. Love the memories (although not enough) we spent with you and Shannon!
So sorry to hear about your loss. Our prayers are with you.
So sorry to hear about Shannon. We will be thinking about all of you!
