I will miss you baby brother! I don’t know how I’ll survive without your occasional guidance and the sound of your laugh. I’ve had you in my life for 60 years, I suppose heaven can have you for an eternity. I love and miss you! Terrell

To the McFadden Family,

So sorry to hear about Shawn, but believe he's with JJ, Betty and Stephanie now. They were all so special to me and my family.

Praying for you all in this time of need and know they are all together watching over you.

Love to all!
