  8. My deepest sympathy to all of Shannon’s family. I met Shannon in Real Estate in Blackfoot, we were both Realtor’s. The thing I loved most about her was her integrity, not to mention her great sense of humor. After moving to Coeur d’Alene, Shannon came to visit me. We had such a wonderful time at convention together. Word’s cannot express the sadness I have for the loss of Shannon. God Bless all of you at this most difficult time. Sincerely,Roxann Caldwell

  9. To Shannon’s family and friends,
    May God help you through these very difficult times. I’m sure that you will miss Shannon always. I wish I could have helped more. I only met her once, on Sept. 27th when I collected for the newspaper from her, but I’ll never forget her. I’m sorry for the circumstances in which she passed. It sounds like she was very bright and talented.
    Look to the Lord and His strength; seek His face always. Psalm 105:4
    I believe that God cried over what happened to Shannon, and she is in His loving arms now. He cries now for the grief He sees in your wounded heart, and he wants so much for you to draw near to Him in prayer and even for you to be totally honest with Him in how you feel. He longs to be near you and comfort you.
    He knows my name,
    He knows my every thought.
    He sees each tear that falls,
    and He hears me when I call.
    Sincerely, Tammy Sparks
