Wow, it is hard to believe so much time has passed and I don't think there is a time that I can think of not thinking about Shannon. I graduated Penn State with my B.S. in chemistry and I am currently working towards my PhD in organic chemistry at the University of Vermont.
It is funny to think that I have suffered through the same classes that Shannon did (except she found some weird joy in physics, that I did not seem to share with her) and I realized that she has always been my driving force to get through those things...
I know I don't write a lot, but I just wanted to share that I do think of Shannon often and remember her enthusiasm she had for teaching and life. And even when the going does get though..I will never sit it out, and I will dance.
