My sincere condolences to the Mette family. I was deeply saddened by the news Shawn had passed. He was a dear
friend and a great person. The world
lost a wonderful man. May God Bless
your family during this time of loss.
I know that God welcomed Shawn with great fanfare. He will always be the
"Limerick King" of Starlite Cafe. He
is watching over each of us now.

Just thinking of you buddy. Repeated one of your jokes today. Laughed and teared up at the same time.
I bet you're a beautiful angel.

Well I don`t know where to start, I guess was back in the early 80`s I meet Shawn, he was liveing with Larry and Janet Mette Aunte and Uncle. He was a little boy when I first meet Shawn and he was a typicall boy. He grew into a fine young man and went to serve his country, being a veteran myself I was proud of him. I tried to see him when ever he came home. A real Gator fan thats for sure, I think he got a rare deal out of life to get struck down in the prime of his life. He was a fighter thats for sure all the way to the end. I will miss Shawn and keep his memory in my heart forever. A brother in arms

WE KEPT IN TOUCH WHEN HE WENT TO GERMANY AND THEN FLORIDA BUT WHEN HE ASKED ME TO JOIN FACEBOOK I DID ANS OVER TIME I FOUND IT TO BE OVERWHEKMING IN KEEPING IN TOUCH WITH THE MANY NEW FRIENDS AND ENDED LEAVING FB. HE WOULD EMAIL ME PICTURES OF HIS LOVELY WIFE AND CHILDREN. SHAWN AND I BONDED IMMEDIATELY BCOZ I GREW UP IN AN AIR FORCE FAMILY. SHAWN WAS BOTH GIFTEDAND HIGHLT TALENTED IN WRITING POETRY OF ALL GENRES AS HE ALSO ENJOYED WRITING SHORT STORIES. I AM VERY SAD TO LEARN MY LIMERICK BUDDY IS NO LONGER WITH US HERE ON EARTH. THE LORD TOOK HIM FROM US AT SUCH AN EARLY AGE. MAY SHAWN REST IN PEACE. RESPECTFULLY, MONI HARRELL AKA: CAPRICHOS FROM THE STARLITE CAFE. WWW.THESTARLITECAFE.COM

I met Shawn at Osan AB in 1999 - 2000. I was very pleased to teach Shawn some of the traditions of the Philippines for he took a very keen interest in learning the ways and life styles. I will miss our conversations and misadventures we had which I treasure today forever in my heart. I know he is in a better place now. Good bye my friend...
