You don't know me, but my 27 year old daughter Kelley passed away in July from brain cancer, i am so very sorry for your loss.

We are so sorry to hear about Shannon. Kaylie and Raeme played volleyball together in their middle school years. We did not know Shannon that well but certainly knew "of" her. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family at this sad time. Life seems so unfair sometimes. May you be comforted in knowing that many people feel your hurt--even those of us who didn't know Shannon directly.

We are so sorry for your loss. Kaylie played volleyball with Raeme back in the middle school years. We did not know Shannon well but knew "of" her, of course. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all now. Life seems so unfair at times. We hope your memories can give you comfort and know that others, even those who did not know Shannon well, share your sorrow.

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.

i think death's a slumber
i feel death's a sleep
where nothing can encumber
in peace and love so deep
we sleep in november
while people a vigil keep
while songs we hum dear
when All of Us God will reap
love you Shannon
God Bless
