I am sorry for your loss.
We share the same name, maybe we share the same relitives.
Mine are from Chicago.
I can’t begin to adequately express my sincerest sorrow at the loss of such a truly wonderful person. Shawn worked closely with me and my staff each winter in planning the Pirates caravan stop in Youngstown. We thought the world of him
Since we heard of Shawn’s illness he has been in our prayers. Now he is in Gods card. We hope it helps to know your friends are thinking of you and praying for you and your family. Lee, Linda, Tracy, Lee & Barry Hedge
I was heartbroken to hear about Shawn. Although our connection was influenced by years and circumstance, I really considered Shawn to be truly one of the most honorable and genuine people I ever had the privilige of knowing. I will treasure those memories of our friendship through Grade School, CCD, High School, College and Beyond. I know how much he loved his family and I hope that is able to comfort you in this very difficult time. I want to extend my heartfelt condolences to the entire family. Shawn was a wonderful person and he will be missed.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you always. We have walked in your shoes we feel your pain. God is with you to help you see the light. May God and his Angels be with All of you . Love
Harry& Patty Kramer
I was extremely saddened to hear about Shawn’s passing. Shawn was my Pirates season ticket rep and was a first class individual always catering to my needs. I manage the radio station in Indiana that broadcasts the Pirates and we had many nice conversations over the years. I am so sorry about your loss. Simply put, Shawn was an outstanding person to know and he will be missed! My condolences.
