    Love you and miss you Shan! I think of you often. I can't help smiling when I remember your silly/goofball side! My love to your whole family, especially tonight.

    With Ohio State/Michigan game this weekend - thinking alot about last time we were all together.  That was such a wonderful day in Columbus - we had so much fun and such great laughs!  You laughing so hard at your Dad when he approached that gentlemen in the park to take our picture. 

    Love you and miss you!

    Shannon - Shelly and I will be visiting Zion Naitonal Park Thursday and Friday of this week and I will be thinking of you as I do when I'm out there with Mother Nature. I know you will be there with us.

    Love you, Aunt Connie

    Dearest Shannon,

    It is impossible to ring in the new year on New Year's Eve without thinking about you and missing you! The world is a much less bright place without you in it. I will never forget you and the wonderful times I remember sharing with you. My family sends their love to your family always.

    Shannon would be beside herself with unbridled joy today. Ohio turned Blue, and with the Harp's family working hard in Florida that state did, too. Amazing.

    I just found out today that my dear friend is gone. I wish that we had not lost touch. You accomplished so much and you were and are a light to everyone. I have known you for a long time, I remember when your dad was our coach for softball. I am proud of all you accomplished. I know that you are an Angel in heaven and I will see you again my friend. My heart and prayers go out to your family. I love you!

    My heart is aching. I'll never forget our days living together at Hahne - all the late nights chatting over breadsticks over all we wanted to do/be/go/experience. You lived your dreams and it tears me up that your life was so senselessly, tragically cut so short. You are deeply missed and loved.

    My son shares your birthday so I hold it inside that he's got a little piece of you in him, warms my heart.

    I was so sad to recently learn of Shannon's death... way too soon.
    Shannon was a sweet, quiet, funny girl back at Miami University. I remember walking all over campus with her being surprised at the quiet wit she had when situations called for it. Although we hadn't kept in touch I remembered her as a generous, kind person and I'm so sorry to hear of her family's loss. She touched many people in her short years.

    Dear Shannon,

    We have never met, but I just wanted to thank you for all the good you have done in your life. You are an inspiration to all and your work will go on. The tragic loss of your life has touched us all.
