Obituary: Shannon Lear Martin Has Passed Away From Freak Accident Lunging Her Horse
The planet has lost light. My college friend Shannon Lear Martin had a freak accident lunging her horse on March 31 that resulted in her passing. I hadn’t seen Shannon for several years…last time was when Cynthia Dehner Guertin and I joined her in San Antonio to attend an Alumni weekend.
She had invited me to her 50th birthday bash in Nov, but I was moving that month and couldn’t get to Austin to be there. The three of us were pretty inseparable in college and I have so many great memories of us.
Kinda in shock right now. I know she was so happy with her life. My heart goes out to her husband Mitch and daughter Avery. I could only find one of my albums from college to share a few memories with her…us at the “Black Hole”; us on Spring Break in Daytona; us at a graduation party…and then her first bridal shower. You were loved and you will be missed.
We know you are still by our sides and watching over us. When I close my eyes, I see you, hear you and hug you. Rest in peace my son. Sean Brautigam shared the sad news in a Facebook Publication.
