We are so saddened by the loss of our cousin. We will all miss Shannon so very much. Although we all will miss her, we hope the family can take comfort knowing Shannon is with her mom, as well as her loving Vege uncles- as well as other family members. Love and hugs to all.

We will really miss Shannon , we had some fun times together especially when went to dinner and a movie when you and the family moved back from Pennsylvania and when we saw Paul Vege's last concert. You went too soon. Maybe you're listening to Paul play as we speak with your Mom.

Jerry. I hardly knew Shannon but we both worked together for many years and you became like a son to me. I saw you grow from a trainee in the maintenance department to become the president of a company and all along we both put family first. So it is with shock and disbelief in my heart I see you putting your wife to her final rest. It must be one of the hardest thing you done in your life and I cannot even begin to understand how painful this must be for you and your children. I wish I could help you through these hard times as I am sure your friends and family too would want. And let this be your support, knowing that we all are both willing and capable to be there for you in times of sorrow and pain. That is after all what family does and family we are.
