I'm so sorry for your loss. I wish I had known Shaun throughout his life; with the words expressed by others, he seemed like an awesome young man. I cannot imagine a loss more painful than that of your own child. He will be missed. Keeping you and your family in my heart.

Shaun, I always looked up to you and looked forward to seeing you every year at every family event. When I was little you always pretended to see the Easter bunny outside, well past the "Easter Bunny Age" just to keep me believing. At Thanksgiving you would sit at the "kids" table with me just so I wouldn't have to sit by myself. You've done so much for other people and have made such an impact on everyone who was lucky to know you. I miss you so much already & I wish I could have seen you more recently. I know you're up there and Papa Bear welcomed you with his famous bear hug and led the way , I bet he was so happy to see you. I love you soooo much and you will always have a place in my heart. I will be sure to tell my children one day of what a wonderful man, father, cousin, son, nephew, and friend you were, Rest easy cousin.

Its hard to grasp the fact that you are gone. Always the light in a dark room, you always found the smile in a frown. We all grew up together at Carlisle, many trips, many memories. You will be missed my friend. My heart and Prayers go out to your family.

My favorite memories of Shaun were that he never stopped smiling and you couldn't knock him down. He took a lot of revving from other kids growing up but he just laughed it off. But little did they know that he would grow into a giant; with the biggest heart this side of the east end. I enjoyed watching Shaun and Brandon grow up in what we call "Our Old Neighborhood". Lots of great memories from the past and was great to watch our kids trample over their roots. You are loved and will be missed. Lynda Fleming

Shaun - the grief in the family with you leaving will never be gone. Your laughter, your cheery face, your quick wit and wonderful personality will be missed sorely. Your family promises to watch over and ensure your daughter, Emma, will be raised in the happiest circumstances possible, per your wishes. You will be missed tremendously. We look forward to remembering the positive things about your life, and looking back to happy memories. Give Papa Bear in heaven a hug for us all. Love your Auntie Dawn, Uncle Jim, Cousin Killian, Rachel, and Jessica.
