On Sunday, February 9th 1997, at the age of 42, Shannon Glenn Porter-Smith,
wife of Donal (aka Bill W Smith Jr) and mother of Matthew, passed over into
the Summer Lands. She went suddenly, in her sleep, after a beautiful day
spent with her parents, sister, nephews, child and husband. A wake and
drumming was held that evening and was well attended. Donal asks for works
and wishes to speed her journey and, when she is rested and ready, her
return. Merry Met, Merry Parted, and Merry Meet Again.
