She thoroughly enjoyed spending her Saturday's every week with her mother, Chris, and her Aunt Cheryl, and looked forward to all the fun things they did together each week. Shandi especially enjoyed the many trips they took to the zoo, the Hamilton County 4-H Fair each year and absolutely loved to go shopping! Shandi was a huge Disney fan, loved all Disney princesses, and had a love for listening and singing to music.
