I'm so blessed to have known Shawn . She was so loving, kind, and the love she had for her family and friends was refreshing. My mom and her shared a love of so much together it was so touching to see the two of them together and the smiles on each of their faces each time they got together. She will be missed by so many but never forgotten. I am saying prayers that her good memories give you comfort in this time. I am blessed to have known her through my mom Diane. I am so so sorry.
