Jim, David, Karen, Lisa and Ann, I am thinking of you all during this most difficult time. I never saw your mom when she didn't make me laugh. What a treasure to be able to say about someone. Keep her love in your hearts, her smile on your faces and her laugh in your voices. Much love and sympathy, Shannon Turner Horshok
