It is with a very sad heart to hear the news of Shannons passing. She fought like a true warrior during this difficult time. Having her family and friends in her corner helped her bear it all. She was a lovely woman with a great personality and a smile that could light up a room. She will be missed but always remembered in all our hearts. To the Mincin and Graf family we are so sorry for your loss. Love, Brigitte and Bud
