Shannon had one of the most amazing smiles that would light up any room whenever she walked in it. I saw a picture that Jan and the girls had taken of her when they visited her this Summer and even with all the pain and suffering that she was going through...she still had that beautiful and amazing smile. The Cromley family will not be able to attend her memorial...but when I look into the sky at 11 am tomorrow I know that beautiful smile of hers will be shining down upon all of you.

My prayers are with the Hooker Family during the Memorial Service this morning. Much love to all who shared in Shannons freindship We will miss you
