My best friend on Boblo, Pete Shannon (17), his sister Katie and mother Kathy lost thier father and husband, Stanford Shannon last night. He had heart problems and passed away in his sleep. I want to give a contribution to his family in honor and memory of him for the island. I have not asked Kathy what she would like it to be but I will get in touch with her and let y'all know what it will be for (side walk, church... ect). Keep them all in your thoughts and prayers.
ps. pete is a member on this web site but I signed him in and do not know if he reads his messages or anything. I dont even know if I told him is pass word.

The Shannons live in Owosso, Mi and have a white cottage in the Pines. It is next door to their grandmothers red cottage between the Lee's and Uncle Tom's Cabins on the water front in case y'all would like to know.

Leebird, I'm not trying to be "*female dog*", but I believe Sandy's first name was Sanford, not Stanford. It's too much to take in, as Sandy was like my big brother. He will definitely be missed! Crying or Very sad

We were so sorry and surprised to hear about Sandy Shannon passing. I've been a slow at following up on the Island posts. because Fritz had neck surgery and things were crazy for a while.
Sandy and his family has the place a few doors from us. Fritz said he has known Sandy for close to 30 years....Sandy was a really nice guy....I got to know Katie when I would bring my dogs, pet skunk and other assorted critters up with us, Katie loved to come over and visit the critters.....but then she started to notice the boys more. :o))

If someone has their home address, please e-mail me privately. We would like to send our condolences.

Thank you,
Bonnie & Fritz
