It's heartbroken having to mourn someone who has fallen asleep in death at such a young age. My sincere condolences to the entire family. The thoughts found at Revelation 21: 4 can be a great source of comfort in time of sorrow. It reads: "He(God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. See also Isaiah 25:8. May you find hope and comfort in knowing that, soon, by means of God's Kingdom, no one will ever fall prey of this merciless enemy. (1 Cor 15:26; Isaiah 11:6-9)

Shawn was always welcome in our home and I am proud he called me "Mama Betty'. He was a big part of all our family functions and we have so many happy memories and funny stories to keep his memory alive. I also worked with him at the center, he was so good with the individuals. One of the ladies called him "Daddy" and she would get so jealous if Shawn was paying attention to someone else. He was a gentle giant with a tender heart and a personality that was bigger than he was. Shawn, you will always be loved! We will keep you all in our prayers and hearts.
