I'm sorry to hear about Shannon. This news is still difficult to understand and I only have such beautiful memories of her. Although I can't make it to her celebration of life, I will be thinking of all of you. So much love to you all.
I was shocked to hear of the passing of Shannon. My sister forwarded me the obit. I knew Shannon from Kindergarten all through high school. We had our siblings in common as Adam and my sister Jennifer were good friends and in school together. Although, it has been 30 years, it still hits you when someone from such fond years suffers and passes. My thoughts go out to Adam and her family.
Our hearts are breaking having learned of Shannon’s illness and passing. We worked together at Hilton Hotels Corporation in Toronto. She had been selected to be a part of their international internship programme and had just returned from Puerto Rico. Shannon’s passion, boundless energy and engaging presence made her a magnetic force. We became friends immediately. I recall one day she opened the trunk of her car and started to pull out various martial arts weapons. Little did I know that this gorgeous, intelligent woman also had a black belt in karate. Of course, she did! Shannon had a wide range of interests and talents. Her greatest being the abililty to light up any room she entered. Shannon will be deeply missed by many.
