I met Shawnda in 8th grade and we instantly became best friends. I lived way out in the country. I walked miles and miles to town everyday so we could hang out. She was a wonderful friend. Everyone she met became another friend. She touched so many peoples lives. Her smile lit up the whole world. My deepest condolences and prayers to her family. Shawnda will be missed by so many. Rest In Peace my dear friend.

Shawnda had such a special soul. She loved everyone wholeheartedly. She always reminded me every time I saw her that she held me when I was a little baby and that she thought I was the cutest little baby ever. We could go years without seeing each other and always picked up right where we left off. She always had a HUGE hug for me and always, always told me she loved me. Her smile was beautiful and her love was deep. I will miss you so much my friend! See you on the other side!
