    As I sit here with tears in my eyes thinking about my younger years Shawn was a huge part of years of my life and great memories. Although I hadn’t seen him in years he’s always remembered as one of my oldest best friends. Death separates us for now. But someday we will meet again. So very very sorry to all of you for his loss. Love to all of you. Kelly Johnson Hays.
