I just found out that my sweet, "baby" cousin, Shannan died on Sunday.
She is the lovely and young woman on the right.
Yes, the younger one.
She sat down on the couch, put her head back and had cardiac arrest from which she never recovered.
I remember when she was born.
She came home to my house as her mama, the beautiful woman on the left, was living with us then.
Margaret Ann is the mama and she was (and is) like a sister to me.
Shannan was my "Show and Tell" in fourth grade. I was so proud to have a baby cousin.
Shannan was the cutest baby you've ever seen, everyone said so.
She looked so much like her mama and they were so very, very close.
I cannot even begin to imagine the pain her mama must be suffering.
I cannot even imagine nor can I bear to even try.
For death to be so unexpected. So shocking. So wrong.
No signs. No warnings.
We are all in shock and our hearts are so heavy.
She left behind four children:
Emily Ann, 10
I hope you can keep all of them in your hearts and prayers.
PS Tina, dear, you know I am thinking of you too, as always.
