Today Shannon would have turned 26…

A sad day for all of us who miss her….
but a happy day for those of us who believe in life after this..
I know she is celebrating in Heaven with us…
Today is another day that I pray so fervently that no one has to
mourn the loss of someone they love due to such a violent and horrible act of violence.
I pray for all those affected by domestic violence..and pray that you will join me in this prayer…
Speak up for those you know who might not be able to speak up for themselves.
Give strength to those you know who feel powerless.
Let each and every woman you know, know they deserve love..respect..they have dignity and are amazing. They are a child of God…who is madly in love with them.
I’m so proud of my shannon who got away from “him”…I think I will always have the sorrow of wishing I could have done more to protect her. But I’m praying for peace and strength to see that God has a plan…and that He will, and already has, use Shannon’s life and death to help other women have courage to protect themselves from Domestic Violence. Don’t be afraid to say something..A life might depend on it.

    I just spent the past hour reading every blog you posted about Shannon. What a tragic ending to such a beautiful woman.
    I am mortified by the events of domestic abuse. I could never imagine what her Family and friends must have gone through…still going through.
    Im terribly sorry.
