God gained an angel with Shawn and left the world a little less bright. My heart breaks for his daughter and family to lose such a special man. R.I.P. Blue eyes….

My prayers are with Shawn’s family during this time of sadness. I went to school with Shawn, we had many classes together. He was such a kind person. We graduated the same year from HS, I had to go to summer school and he lent me his cap and gown to wear. I will never forget that. Now he is riding the waves of his dreams in heaven. Rest in peace my friend.
