    This is surreal!! I can hear your voice as I type this message. I hope you know and I am sure that you do just how much your family loves you. Rest peacefully and I know that we will have you in our hearts, thoughts and prayers forever.

    Shawn there were so many things we didn’t get the chance to say, so many memories we shared both good and bad, so many times you would drive me bananas but no matter what I could never stay angry at you. I always knew when you truly needed me you didn’t have to say anything I just knew and would show up for you. You watched over me when I was younger and had the slickest way of putting me up on game, just like mommy. A part of me left last week and just like with mommy I feel so incomplete. You were your best you when helping others. You were truly your mothers son. I can’t seem to fathom the words needed to tell the world how much you meant to me. This hurts so bad. I use to brag about having the coolest, the flyest big brother in the world. I knew you hurt in many ways we couldn’t imagine but I seen you fight until the fear subsided. You will always be my favorite “fly guy” brother and each day I’m allowed to see I will continue making you proud.
    Your Little Sister

    My condolences to the Brown family. Growing up Shannelle was like a best friend/sister and Shawn was the coolest big brother. Although I haven’t seen the family in some years your death is like losing the big brother I never had. May you rest in eternal peace. My prayers are with the family, for peace, during your time of bereavement.

    To my little brother Shawn. I’m sorry we didnt share that much time together in life, but we got introduced to each other late in life. That’s when my life was taken a turn of moving around to different places in the world. But when I made it in town and someone would tell me you was around the corner. I would brake my neck just to have a minute or two with my brother which made the trip of coming home better than ever. I’m sorry I didn’t get the chance to meet your family, but I know their all great like you. Little Bro I will miss you alot. Some day I will see you again and we can hang out and catch up on time. LOVE YOU ALWAYS LITTLE BRO.
