    You have always been a sweet, cool, and loyal friend ever since we met in 1st grade. I loved your down-to-earth spirit and kind soul. It’s not often that you grow up with someone and remain friends regardless of distance and time. I’m thankful for getting to have you be a part of my life. I know you are jammin’ up above. Maybe you can teach my hubby some moves up there. You’ll always be loved and remain in our hearts forever.

    Shawn was down to earth and a beautiful soul. I have fond memories of him in at Atwater High School. He was a nature lover and I am too. I worked under his beautiful Mother in the early 2000’s and was blessed to have him has a friend on FB and Instagram. Shawn you were a beautiful bright light and I don’t understand why you were taken away so young. God has his reasons and I am sure you are one of his top angels. My heart aches for your wife, kids, Mom, Dad, siblings, Grandparents, neices, nephews, and friends. Praying for you all. Only understand..one day we will meet again.
