    To Shannon Family: The passing of Tom and Kathy is certainly a tragedy and a loss for our entire community. Our little town would be hard-pressed to find better friends and neighbors than Tom and Kathy. We will miss their sense of humor and unabashed love for life and country.

    To the family of Tom and Kathy Shannon. I am so so sorry for the loss of your parents. Same month. I’m lost for word’s and those family member’s will know I’ve never been in loss of word’s. Take care of each other. The main loss of a parent let alone both. Family drifts. Feeling it the older I(we) get.

    I just watched this beautiful tribute to Tom & Kathy I cried the entire viewing time. I’ve lived in Charlotte, NC more than 11 years so it has been a long time since I’ve seen them. It rips my heart out to know they are both gone but I will never forget them. RIP
