Night of Sadness

By Abbey G.
Florida, Age 12

Friends and family gathered on Tuesday night to pay respect to Shannon G. Inside the funeral home, everything was silent, except for the sound of shed tears hitting the floor.
For those who attended the wake, many of them did not even know Shannon. Good citizens attended out of the good nature of their hearts for an innocent child. Friends who attended brought old pictures of their beloved friend. No speeches were given besides for the reverend. The reverend there will also be the one giving the funeral mass on Wednesday morning.
This tragic incident has brought the community of Palm Coast together. Nobody ever expected something like this to happen. Everyone who attended the wake had one last chance of seeing the smiling face that Shannon once roamed the halls with.
Shannon, you will be missed always and forever. Hoping all goes well in life, we will all see you once again.
