The day Jack Williamson introduced me to Shannon I felt as though I knew him for many years. Then at benefit auction it was as though we knew each other even longer. Never thought I'd see the day I'd be leaving a message for his obit. So many didn't get a chance to know you. What little I knew you I know you were a very giving caring guy. You may not be here with us but I know you're looking down on all you cared so very much about. Take care up there. You'll be very much missed here on earth. Yet there'll be many talking with you every day looking for advice. Take care and we'll see you again later!
