    Mike and Shelly,
    I am so sorry to hear of Shawn’s passing. I am keeping him and all of you in my prayers.
    After Uncle Mike passed, Shawn reached out on Facebook to say hi, talk about his grandpa, ask how Lisa was doing. It was nice to have gotten to connect with him. He was a great young man and brought so much joy to all of us.

    Take care,
