    Shannon sorry to hear of Wynona passing. I always call her Winne that was from working at Serbin. She was always dedicated to you. I remember her telling me she wouldn’t married again till you were grown. Wynona held to that plus was ironic that she married someone with the last name Shannon. She was a great lady. Wayne and Dale were kin and friends. May God hold you in his arms at this time. Wish we could be there we both have the c word.
