    Larry and I are so truly sorry for your loss we remember Shaunna as a teenager with softball weekends and then as the woman she had become at her Mom's wedding . She was poised, gracious and it was
    very obvious the fabulous woman she had become and her Mom 's pride in her accomplishments. I struggle with why such a tragedy
    could occur. We can only hope and pray your family can cope and carry on in her memory.
