Please accept my sincere condolences. I met Shana for the first time in 2002, we were both in a women’s recovery group in Washington, Pa. I’m honored that over the past 16 years our paths continued to cross! I was just texting with her two weeks ago and she seem to be doing great, Life can be so fickle like that. Although she struggled, she always remained positive energy and light in this world. Stay in the light my friend. Love always

Shana was one of the most special people I have known. She has passed through my life over the past 35 years and I am grateful that every time I saw her, she let me know that she was an angel through and through. I always felt compelled to hold her tight and am so grateful for that. One day when my son was in kindergarten at Colfax, he wondered off and was missing. Shana, drove around until she found him, lured him into her car (as he did not know her) and returned him to me, on what was one of the most frightening moments of my life. I have been forever grateful to her for that, for going out of her way, for taking the time, and for her warmth and loving smile. To her mom and dad, son and sister and all those she has left here, please accept my heartfelt condolences. She will be missed by me along with the so many others.

I was thinking about Shana this morning. I remember her when Best from when I came home from college. She was so beautiful, so smart and had so much crazy energy. I am so sad she is no longer with us and that I never got to know the person she seemed on verge of being. See you tomorrow love Amy
