  8. Shannon, Kasey (and Danny)

    I am shocked and saddened to hear about your mom. She was such an active part of your life that when I think of our childhood she plays an integral part of those memories. Chaperoning events, hosting pool parties, your dad and mom at Little Dribblers, and on and on. My heart hurts for you, and I wish I had words to ease your pain. My deepest sympathy. — Marquette
