Shannon was my sister, four years and one month my senior. I don’t know when this picture was taken, but I would guess perhaps at age 9 or 10.
Today (October 29, 2010) she would have turned 61 years old, had she lived. She passed away at age 44, if I have my dates right. Being brother and sister, we didn’t always see eye to eye; but then again, sometimes, we did. I miss her still.
Happy birthday, sister.
