Larry, even though months have passed since Shannon's death, I am still thinking of her, you and the boys. I am sad that we didn't keep in physical touch but I know that I never lost the connection to her dear,caring, and powerful spirit -- and will never! Rooming with Shannon on Piedmont Road in our great little house provided me with not only getting to know her in a deep way (after all she lived in that dirt basement -- only Shannon would have embraced that challenge),but I got to know you. I am sending heartfelt condolences to you and the boys. What an incredible woman Shannon is and always will be! Hope i can find your address from someone so I can catch up with your and Shannon's adult life together. Please stay in touch now. WIth Love, Justina
Our condolences on the loss of your wife, Larry and to Ashby and Hunter on the loss of your Mother. Shannon was a very kind, brave and a gentle lady and we remember with love. Barry and Margaret Camac and family.
Heather and I send our condolences, thoughts and prayers to Larry, Hunter, and Ashby. What a genuinely gentle woman and kind soul Shannon was - anyone who had the privilege of knowing her is a better person for the experience.
I look to the time when God will wipe every tear from our eyes and mourning will be no more, my deepest condolence.
As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.
I met Shannon only one time, attending an event with Sharon and Adrian Powell for Camp Twin Lakes. One time is all I needed to experience Shannon's genuine kindness, spirit and giving nature. What a true loss for Larry, her sons and the entire community. My heartfelt condolences to all of you.
My deepest sympathy to the Lord family at this most difficult time. God gives comfort to all those in mourning. May He provide you with comfort in your time of need. Isaiah 61:2
My sincere condolences to the family
Dear Larry, I am keeping you and your children in my prayers. Unfortunately I will not be able to make the service. Shannon was a beautiful lady in all aspects.
Friend of our youth, we feel your sadness in losing your closest friend and wish you happiness in remembering her.
To all of the Lord and Miller Family, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Shannon stayed at our house in Fairhope a few years ago while Ben and I were out of town. She and Katie took care of my 2 cats. On the day she was leaving, one of my cats decided not to come home - I am told that her trip home was delayed several hours as she waited for the cat to return! Of course the cat showed up about 2 days later. I always thought of Shannon as a sweet gentle soul. I know she will be very missed by many. Thoughts and prayers to all of her friends and family.
Shannon was my babysitter - even when I was 18 and my brother and David are good friends. She was really my darling, kind big sister who would cut my hair in the back yard. Her dear friend Roberta is my cousin and I always loved the friendship between Shannon, Roberta, Edie and myself. I last saw her here in Mobile and we had a nice dinner. Her sweet soul and beautiful self will live on forever in our hearts and memories.

To Larry and family,
Whenever I have thought of Shannon over the years, I always remembered her sweet calmness and her welcoming smile.

Shannon was a dear and wonderful lady...we were friends in high school, our moms and Aunt Buck were all friends too during their youth in Mobile. I last saw Shannon at a Murphy High re-union and she was the same as always and mentioned the book she was writing...heaven received a special person when Shannon arrived....Love to all, Judy Dodson Wells
To Larry and all of Shannon's family.
There is a huge gaping hole in the golden threads of life today. Shannon nurtured so many many many of us with her brilliant creative mind , earthy attention to detail, and courageous heart. Chuck and I will be thinking of you all.
I have known Shannon for most of my life and we were soul mates from the get-go. I feel so fortunate that Edie and I were able to have that last wonderful visit with her on May 22nd. We laughed, we cried, we shared stories, old and new. She was compassionate, talented, resourceful, and uncommonly brave--- an extraordinary human being and an invaluable friend. I will miss her terribly.
Dear Larry, I am so saddened over the death of your precious Shannon. She was not only multi-talented but she had such compassion for her family and her fellow man. I know you and your boys, Hunter and Ashby, will miss her terribly. With deepest sympathy and love, Jane Rutherfurd
Shannon was the first "big sister" that I had. Our mothers were best friends, and Katie and I grew up together in Mobile. I always loved Shannon - so calm, so sweet, so pretty. I am thankful for my childhood memories, and I know that Shannon will be missed not only by her loving family and extended family, but also by those she touched through her work.
God bless you all in this time of sorrow,
Shannon was always there for affected families ready to share a contact or suggest how to talk to our doctors. She was the rudder that set MDF on its course, now we sail on with her words to encourage us.
Dear Larry, Hunter and Ashby, you must be proud that you have such a wonderful wife or mother, whom we adored so much. Since I met Shannon 23 years ago, she has been a roll of model in my life. She will be missed forever.

Shannon and I were distantly related through the Hunter family. I knew her as a child, and she taught me to swim at Miss Pudd's swimming pool in Mobile, AL. I saw her intermittently as an adult, and enjoyed our visits immensely. She will be missed by all who knew her. My prayers are with you all. Marietta Murray Urquhart
Larry and family,
Shannon was one of the most beautiful souls I have ever known. I adored her tremendously and will miss her much. I tried to get in touch recently but now realize that things were moving much too rapidly. I send big hugs to Hunter and Ashby. Will be in touch. She will be a beautiful angel.
