Shannon Lee McBride
May She Rest In Peace

SHANNONS ANGELS - Police officers and fire-fighters all across the nation, especially in Ohio, proudly wear one of Shannon's Angels to honor her memory as a founding charter member of the Greater Cleveland Police Emerald Society, as as a side-drummer in Cleveland's first police bagpipe band (sponsored by the GCPOMS).  She truly believed that the police and fire personnel who rushed to her side three times when she was hemorraging so severely were her "guardian angels".  Unfortunately Shannon Lee was taken by the angels to heaven at age 22.  She was beyond the help rendered that evening by so men men and women in blue (including the dispatchers) of the City of Mentor, Ohio.  She was a kind and helping person.  We continue to honor her spirit by distributing angel pins and Irish blessings to any nurse, doctor, police officer, firefighter, and military person who would be kind enough to wear her pin on their vest and/or turnout gear.  May she and all of the faithful departed rest in peace.  The McBride Family
