Shannon Dechief (nee Ledingham) June 15, 1964 - Sept 13, 2013 Who suddenly left us eight years ago, In loving memory of a mother and a partner. Today's the day we lost you, And for a time it felt as though Our lives had ended too. But the loss has taught us many things, And now we face each day With hope and happy memories To help us on our way. And though we are still full of sadness That you're no longer here, Your influence still guides us And we still feel you near. What we shared will never die. It lives within my heart, Bringing strength and comfort While we are apart. You are not forgotten, dear Shannon. Your loving daughters Taylor and Madison, and husband Dale.
