    Please accept my condolences on the passing of Shawn. I only recently met Shawn through Zak when he came up to Pennsylvania to help Bob move. Instantly, I found him to be extremely friendly, funny and sweet. Shawn, Zak, my sister, another friend and I hung out all night. We talked about so many different things and it was apparent that he loved his family dearly. I was in shock when I learned of the accident and I am deeply saddened I will never see him again. My sister used the analogy of life being as fragile as a candle flame. I realize this even more with Shawn's passing and I will strive not to take anything for granted. I will keep your family in my prayers during this difficult time.
