Haven't been here in what seems like an eternity. As time goes on, there still isn't a day I don't think about you. The thoughts have moved from shock and denial, through anger, and finally to acceptance. There are days when it feels like you just left, but most of time, it feels like an eternity since I last heard your voice. Your wonderful friends, friends I didn't even know you had, continue to reach out to me, almost 5 years later. In spite of your issues with drugs, they still think the world of you and are always eager to share the memories they have. I feel like I know you better in death than I did in life, and that breaks my heart, but life goes on. I miss you every day; even the craziness.
All my love,
I have fond memories of Shawn as he grew up watching him ride motorcycles and acting crazy and soooo cute. I along with his family and friends will admit when he got older drugs became part of his life. He was not alone, those still alive are fighting the same battle. So don't be to quick to judge him and others that continue this battle. The most important thing is to remember the good things about Shawn and we are thankful that he passed drug free after a short illness. Those of you that choose to tarnish his memory, SHAME on you. I wonder what is in your past that you would like us to forget. Also would you like us to say bad things about your loved one without knowing the real story.
Well, I loved Shawn and will always love him for who he really was and miss him everyday. God bless his Mom ( my sister) and Dad who also miss him greatly.
Love you Shawn,

You could find me here in my Comfort Place any day any night it was my fate.
This place is where my insides raced and my mind carried on in a charging pace.
I knew each day I would get thru, I'd survived so much if only you knew.
I'd try to leave the sad past behind me but as hard as I tied it seemed to find me
The good times I would remember with joy and laughter not knowing when I would face the hear after.
So enjoy this little part of my world and try to see the things I so enjoyed
I leave you this, My Comfort Place, remember me often with a smile on your face and send me a kiss to the heavens above I'll be waiting and watching for all of your love.
I love you son and miss your sweet, sweet smile.
there is way too much to say about all the memories that we have together! I love and miss him so much!!!!!!!! we were like brothers, and still feel like hes with me everyday! Love and miss u lots my brother!!!!!! R.I.P.
Even though you weren't perfect, I always loved you and wanted the best for you. Through your death, I've learned that the only thing that isn't negotiable is death. You're my Dad, and that's all that ever should have mattered. I'm so sorry I never made it all right with you, but I know in my heart that you know I love you. As much as it pains me to say it, I actually miss your antics. Even though you may have never known, I learned so much from you. Most of it was things I shouldn't do (you know you want to laugh), but learn I did. I'd give nearly anything just to hear you say, "I'm your Dad!" one more time and to be able to say goodbye. I'm so sorry.
