I grew up with Sam's brother Paul and have known them since I was in Kindergarten. It was not long after Shannon had married Sam that I met this outstanding and beautiful young lady. Such a wonderful human being, wife, mother and grandmother. She was and still is loved by so many. My wife and I send our heartfelt sympathy to Tony, Dean and their families, as well as Shannon's family in Canada. Now together again and for eternity with our Lord and Savior.
