    R.I.P. – Shanon, a.k.a “Bite Me,” “Diving Smurf”

    I’ve been delaying this post for several days, hoping that the source was somehow mistaken.

    Last Tuesday, November 20th, Dan from the Divevets posted this message, on the message board:

    “Saw this on Facebook: Barbara Soto – ‘Today I lost a wonderful niece. Shanon Wesserling. She could not take her living conditions anymore or her pain. Though she had many problems, she was a wonderful person. Giving, caring, always there to lend a helping hand to those who needed it. I will miss her terribly. God Bless you Shanon and now you are truly at peace. Love Aunt Barbie.’

    “Shanon started diving with us 8 or 9 years ago. She had many problems, some we witnessed and many we did not. Goodbye Shanon, I hope you are in a better place.”

    Shanon was a regular member of the Divevets and Pacific Wilderness Diving Club; I remember her from the early days of when I started diving.

    The last few years were very hard for her; I guess harder than anyone could have imagined.

    She will be missed, and I prefer to remember the happier Shanon from several years back.

    These photos are from 2007.

    4. Shanon you were always my sunshine and nothing has been quite as cheerful or as exciting since you left us.
      My only comfort is knowing you have your papa all to yourself.
      I wish you were here today. Remember to keep a light on for your mother and I…-
