I haven't seen Shannon since her sister Michelle's wedding a very long time ago. Shannon and her family lived next door to my family in the 70's. For many years, Shannon and her sibs played with us Cabral kids everyday. I'm so very sorry to hear of Shannon's passing. So sad.
Within Shannon's tiny body, was the soul and heart of an angel, I love you my friend and will miss you and your beautiful smile xxooxx. The Comforti Family

Shannon, watching you grow into the wonderful women, wife and mother was so great. You will be missed forever.
Shannon... What a gift you were to us...thanks for our memories...our sincere condolences to Shannon's family and loved ones. May you find comfort in knowing we care.
Shannon you were a true fighter. It was an honor to meet you and coach your daughter. You will be missed. May you rest and piece. You are now an angle who will always be protecting your family. God Bless You
You were such a great mother, always wanting the best for your children and cheering them on from the 'many' sidelines.... swim team, soccer, football, etc... You were also a great friend to me and I feel blessed to have had Jake and Sydney as my students at Woodside. You are now at peace and pain free, watching your fabulous children grow into beautiful young adults. You, Scott and your Dad will now continue to look down upon them and guide them in the right directions. I miss you... and the world isn't the same without you. I promise to be here for your kids ANYTIME they need a hug, help with their homework, dinner, a fun movie day, shopping excursions or a fun boating outing! Words cannot express how all of us are at such a loss without you here -- now you're our angel. xo
Shannon, my fondest memories as a child was hanging out at your home. Always so welcoming and kind, You were such a great friend, to me and my whole family. An amazing mother.. You are already missed by so many people! We love you, and will never forget your smile! <3
you are gone, but never forgotten we all love and miss you <3
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."
It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.
God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.
