My little brother(even though you were bigger than me) I am so at a loss right now. my heart is so broken. You were the best brother that any sister could ask for. we may have had our differences but when push came to shove you were always there for me. I love how close we got after dad died. knowing that you are with dad now is some comfort to me. Until we meet again I love and will miss you every second of everyday. I LOVE YOU TO THE MOON AND BACK

Shawn, my baby, how do I go on without you. You were here for me through my bad times the last few years. I can't thank you enough for that. You were going through so many problems of your own but you still took the time to make me laugh! I was so proud of you! You got clean and did everything you were suppose to do to get your kids back!!! And guess what, they were going to give you them!!!! I will always remind your kids how much you loved them and will keep your memory alive. My only comfort is knowing Dad and Grampa were there to wrap their arms around you and surround you with their love. Now I have you all watching over me from above!! Until we meet again, rest in peace my son, my baby......
