I was so sorry to learn about Shawn. Him and I were friends on Facebook and had chatted several times. I was in total shock when dad called and told me cuz I had just gotten a message from him on the 2nd telling me he hopes the new year brings me joy and happiness and that he loved me. I will miss our chats. Y'all have my love and sympathies and will be in my prayers. Gisele
