If only there were something that I could type here , that would take away the pain for all of you on the loss of your son, your brother, your husband, your father, your uncle, your friend…but there is only the knowledge that you are being thought of with love and lifted in prayer. May God hold you during this time of infinite grief and lead your hearts to a place of comfort in the arms of those who will surround you during this time and bring laughter and love into the stories and the memories that will be told and shared about Shawn. While his is a life ended too soon his legacy will remain in the love that he extended to those he kept in his circle.

I am so sorry for your loss Pat and Lonnie ! Your family is in my prayers. There is nothing worse then losing a child or any family member. No words can take away your pain.But know that others care and God will be there for you. I keep thinking about when Mark and Shawn were young and ran around together before they started their own families. Seems so long ago. But life is too short and Shawn was taken way too soon.

My deepest sympathies, caring thoughts, and prayers go out to all. Helen Keller said, "What we have once enjoyed deeply we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.” I know that Shawn will live on in the hearts of all who knew and loved him. May the knowledge that so many are holding you close in heart and prayer, help bring you comfort during this incredibly difficult time. May God Bless you.
