    Nathan, Yvonne, Carolyn, Pam, Evan, Don,

    Words cannot even begin to express the sadness I feel inside. So many tears have been shed, but one thing always comes to mind. Shana’s smile. Shana’s laugh. Keep those memories with you as you go along in life and she will always be alive in your thoughts. Thinking of you all and praying good memories will replace the pain you all feel.

    Love you all,
    Jeff and Carolee
