 I haven't seen Shannon in a long time. Friends go seperate ways but I know if we saw each other in a crowd we would fall right in step as though no time past. He was a joy to know even with his demons. As we all have demons when he was at his best he was a character. Loved playing poker lived campfires and keys of beer miss the simple Times. He was there for my nursing graduation with my gift of large crown royal at prairie lane. All my triumphs in life he seemed to always be there. Those were good times. Much love fly high be good or good at it. - Jen Hanna
