Shannon Dodd passed away on September 30, 2008. She is survived by her husband Tom (a former Clemson roommate of mine) and 2 adopted boys.

If I had to attempt to sum up Shannon (which is not possible) I would have to say two things: hilarious and determined. The service in Westminster was beautiful - I believe she would have really liked it. For our mutual friends, please keep Tom, the boys, and the families in prayer. Our hearts are sad, but God is still sovereign, good, and sufficient.
