  1. To the family of Shawn, you have my deepest sympathy in your tragic loss. What is this world coming to when someone’s life can be taken away, and for what? Death is difficult to face, especially under these circumstances. It hurts when the family circle has been broken but be assured that it is only temporary. Isaiah 25:8 tells us “He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.”

    Lolita and family so sorry for your loss. Shawn was a great man. Didn’t bother anyone. I always remember him as a sweet and caring young man. When we grew up in Ohio Town Houses (Brentnell) everyone was one big happy family. He will truly be missed. Love you all.
