From his Mother...
My son wrote to me: Mom, sometimes I get so wrapped up in the craziness of hectic schedules and long "to do lists", that one day leads into the next. But even in those busy times ...I still think of you ...and how much you mean to me. I hope you always know I love you. -Shawn
Even though you share many things in common with others ...you are one of a kind. No one else has been given the same make up God has given you. You were handcrafted with unique talents, motivations and your special niche in life. You always were and always will be "My Shining Star" who lighted up my life.
