Shannie, just a few words to convey my sincere admiration for you. When I was 12 years old I thought Bobby Orr was a hero. But having witnessed the strength, poise and dignity, that you displayed on an on-going basis, through a time of intolerable adversity, that only a few could match, you redefined the term for me. I will miss you dearly. But those we love are never truly gone. when I think of you, I will close my eyes…and you will be there.

Love Grant.

My darling daughter Shannon,

You are gone much too soon and know you were my firstborn daughter that was love so much by Dad and me. My mind is no longer good and I can’t talk but I am sure you knew that in my eyes and heart I loved you as much as I could. Say hello to dad. Till I meet you and the ones waiting in heaven, love you forever and no more suffering. Thanks for being my daughter. Ty and Jake be good to each other and remember me. Wendy be brave and stay healthy. Love forever. Mom

Heartfelt condolences on the loss of an unbelievably brave, generous and thoughtful person. You were a true gem – thinking of others and their wellness. Donating precious organs for research to help even one person not endure what you did. You were a great niece- enjoying friends and family and visits and calls. You were loved more than you probably realize but that will continue forever. TEKO will miss you but now he has a playmate and his Aunty Wendy and Michael to give him love and petting. Maybe Felix will get used to her too. Shan – love forever, prayers forever and bye till we meet again.

Rest peacefully sweetie,

Love Aunt Judy, Uncle Ron and Toby

Inspiration, strength, resilience, compassion, love are all what you were and are forever lasting in my memories. No more suffering, no more pain brings me joy.
May you now be at peace and free to dance and laugh as you join your loved ones already there to greet you with loving embrace.
May meet again in the next realm…
All of my love,..

Wendy Taylor

Dear sister, I already miss you. You were the Best Sister in the world. I will always admire your Strength & Courage during your 22 year battle with M.S. I will cherish all of the good times we had. It was an Honor to be your sister, & now that you are my Guardian Angel you can guide me to be as good a person as you were. I will take very good care of your cat, Teko. I will wear your favorite cross with pride forever. I take solace that your suffering is over, & you are at Peace in Heaven with Dad & other loved ones. Until we meet again, my Eternal Love, Wendy xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
