    Pam, we were greatly shocked and saddened to hear of Shannon’s passing. Shannon was a man of calmness and graciousness. Pam I know how much Shannon cared for you, the girls and grandchildren. Shannon and I would have talks about life, business and kidding around about real estate investments at the Maples Restaurant over tea and coffee. I really miss those conversations!
    Our sincere condolences go out to you and your family and friends.
    God Bless

  • Bob & Esther says:

    Pam, Lindsay, Julie and Erin…Esther and I want to extend our sincerest sympathies in the loss of Shannie. I have many pleasant memories of visits with Shannie, Christmas Day at the Robertson’s when all the cousins and uncles and aunts would get together, playing hockey outdoors at the local school rink til my ears froze, just down from D’Arcy Street, Robbie in nets, usually on the coldest days in winter, but I always remember that it was always cold in Pembroke or so it seemed and me wanting to retreat to the warmth of their home, but those guys would insist on playing a few more minutes, I guess being from Ottawa I was soft, compared to the lads from up the river. I remember being invited to your winter carnivals and attending with Shannie, going to dances when we were younger ( a few visits to Mooreheads). Pam you and Shannie were always gracious hosts when Esther and I would come up and visit.
    As long as we have these memories and cherish them in our hearts, Shannie will always be a part of us…… gone but not forgotten. Esther and I pray that God will be your strength and comfort in this your hour of need. Always in our prayers and thoughts.
