"Shannon was one of a kind and she had a huge heart. She was always there for you when you needed her and reminded you constantly that her door was always open.

She was like a best friend. Through all her struggles she remained strong and hopeful and always put her family first, including her children who she always wanted the best for. There is not enough words to describe the wonderful person she was and the way she lit up the room. There is no pain like the pain of losing a child. We think of her every day and we miss her every day."
