Shawn was such a wonderful and funny guy and he was always smiling and had such a big heart. He was a car guy for sure. He always was ready to help you out and help you when you needed a hand with something. His time was definitely too short here. It was an honor knowing him and having him as a friend. He will be greatly missed. We love & miss you Shawn!!!
