    So sad. When I first saw her picture, I couldn’t help but think that she looked like she had a bubbly personality, and just full of energy and life. I did not know her, and never met her, but I bet she had a lot to offer. Prayers to her family and friends….

    Well said Glen Allen. A shame that such a nice smile will not be seen again. R.I.P. young lady.
    Now for the person responsible………….

    How about a “Missing Person” was found dead. What does her gender have to do with it?

    My heart dropped when I got the text saying that Shanda AKA light skin passed away. Shanda was an awesome person and had a great personality. Another NC. A&T Aggie Alumni gone too soon. I will pray for her family and friends during this difficult time. Rest in Paradise Shanda
