I will always remember Shannon as one of the best childhood friends I had. His mom Judy and my dad were the best of friends and spent so many weekends hanging out. Shannon was like the brother I never had. We bowled in leagues together for years, were in cub scouts together and played video games and basketball together all the time. I will always cherish the memories we made together. Rest well my dear friend, I will always remember you. I love you brother

Shannon and I was thick as thieves growing up. Everytime I think of him this one memory pops up. We would hide in the back of the truck so we could go to town with Judy and my mother we succeeded one time after that they would make sure Daddy and Kenneth was watching us. My biggest regret is we lost contact with each other and that makes me sad. Shannon had a smile that would light up the whole house! He is with Jesus now and I'm sure daddy and Kenneth was waiting for him. I love Judy!
