Relationship Found: Lisa and Shannon are 5th cousins
What is amazing is that we live a very short distance away from where this happened and had no idea at the time that there was a connection. After going through 750+ family members these were the first that were in the Buffalo area besides my wife's immediate family. Most of the family is either in Upstate New York (Buffalo is Western New York not Upstate regardless of what NYC thinks) or Ontario.
This is the mom
And the two daughters
Glad to see someone was looking out for the family
I couldn't imagine what that night could have been like for the father and son. Kyle would have been 11 at the time. This happened the week before school starts in this area. The funeral would have been on the first day of school, Wednesday, September 4th.
