    I was close with Shawn, last speaking to him in June 2018. I’m heartbroken for several reasons. I dont want to seem overly dramatic, but his passing has impacted me greatly. Shawn has friends all over the map and loved with his whole heart. I would give anything for one more conversation. Just one more. May God Bless Shawn’s children and family. My sweet Bonnieville buddy.
