Billie D. (Bill) Shannon, Weatherford, Texas passed away Wednesday, December 15, 2010 after an extended illness. His remains will be cremated and placed in a niche along side of his wife’s ashes in Annetta Cemetery. A memorial service will be held at a later date. Galbreaith Pickard Funeral Chapel will make all arrangements.

Life is a brief journey here on earth down a path of a combination of our choice, God’s guidance and by chance and should be lived to the fullest since it only occurs once. Bill’s belief was that life is all about attitude and that a positive attitude, belief and trust in our Lord, Meeting adversity head on, accepting what we can not change and changing that which we can, would lead to positive outcomes.
