    We are thrilled that this chapter is over for the Entire Shanks/Sanderholms family. We know that nothing will ever bring Jodi back to you. But we hope that this will bring a small amount of peace and help you with the healing process. God Bless You!

    I came across Jodi’s story on the Extreme Forensics show and I was moved to find out more about her life. While she died in a horrible, unspeakable way, she should not be defined by her death, but rather by her many accomplishments and by the light that she brought to the world. I did not know her, but I would have been proud to have her as a daughter, sister, or a friend. This tribute was beautifully done and will help those like me, who didn’t get the opportunity to know this wonderful young woman, to get a glimpse of what a precious gem was stolen from us all.
