I think the memory that sticks out the most for me is more of a bunch of memories together. But, they seem to all be related to Shaun being the boy all the girls at the horse shows wanted to date. He was the cutie of our age group. 😉 I’m so very glad that I got to grow up with you all at the shows.
And ended up with one heck of a sister in law out of the deal❤️ I love you all and as I stated before I wish I could give you all the last hug I got from Shaun when he was at our house fishing.

Shawn was the kind of person you didn't meet often. He almost always had a smile no matter what he was doing. Always so friendly and made us feel welcome. All of you will miss him terribly. You have our condolences and our prayers.
