On Wednesday, April 14, 2010 our loved one stepped across the threshold that we call death, and stepped into another room in the masion prepared for those who know and love our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Our sister Eunice Hemphill Shannon is at peace with God now and rejoicing in her happy new home.
