     Shawn was an incredible person and a great customer of ours here at NAPA Oregon.
    He was one of only a handful of people in my life that could get away with calling me Daniel. I was always amazed at his positive attitude with his business and his family . We will miss him dearly. 

    Our hearts go out to April , his children and his family

    Shawn, I can't believe you are gone, my lil brother. I can remember the first time I held you when you were born and will never forget the last time I held you and said "Goodbye". Who is going to call or come over and tease me unmercifully. What I would do just to see that silly smirk on your face once again. I loved and will always LOVE you. I promise I will be there for April and keep your memory alive for the kids. You will always be in my heart, even though there isn't much of it left since it is so broken. Rest easy and enjoy your time with Dad, my John, and the rest of the family. We will all take it from here. Until we meet again, I will cherish all our memories and share them with April and the kids. I love you, your big sister, Jen ❤❤❤❤
