I went to school with Shannon at Whiteside & East. Just heard of Shannon’s passing thru of our classmates. First memory that came to mind was playing softball in junior high. Shannon threw the ball so hard it would sting through the glove. And then of riding home from school with her listening to Ace of Base as loud as we could. Her laughter and smile will be missed. I am so sorry for your families loss. Prayers of healing for your broken hearts.
