Mary1063 Posted January 5, 2014 Report Share Posted January 5, 2014 I'm posting this here because most of you know of my brother Leo and his wife Shannon. And Leo had my husband help him purchase something for Shan at the end of his battle... To be given to her with a letter when The Lord took him from her. We never gave it to her following his passing. She was in her own battle for life. It just didn't seem a priority at the time... Saving her life was. I regret that "unintentional forgetfulness" regarding this blessed gift from Leo. I think those here who knew Shan, knew of their immense love and devotion for each other. Well, since Shan passed I have had this gift to her from Leo and never wanted to open it. I finally did tonight. Read his letter to her which was short but absolutely pure devoted love. And the gift is the pic I have included, which doesn't do it justice when seen in person. The story behind it, is at the time of their marriage, Leo could only afford very cheap sterling silver wedding bands. (No diamond ring). So this is 10 carat white gold with a 1/2 carat diamond ring with band including diamonds in the band. The pic doesn't do it justice. I am so very sorry we never gave this to her following his death. It just slipped my mind... I just wanted to get her to survive. My heart is breaking because had Butch or I thought clearer then maybe giving this gift from Leo would have kept her here. If she heard the letter he wrote to her, I think it would have given her hope to survive. Shame on me? For being selfish... Just wanted to share this with those of you who knew Shannon and her love with my brother. I think maybe y'all can imagine what he wrote in the letter. But I really can't convey that right now for it is just pure honorable devotion and selfless love and its overwhelming me. If you knew my brother, you'd know he was not the kind for heart felt expression. But this speaks his heart. I'm glad they are together eternally now. Just sad...
