    I have known shawn for about 16 years . He was a kind person who allways helped you out if you needed it . We were hip to hip for many years and were very best of friends as still I consider him my best friend . We shared many great times together while doing things or even just talking to eachother . The trips to the local bars in the northeast to watch the Flyers games that we both enjoyed to watch together while scarfing down a few dozen wings . As we grew a little older and each started our famlies we would still see eachother . He was a very proud father who loved and cared for his children as well as his wife to be pam . I just want this whole thing to be a dream and to wake up and hear shawn’s voice say ” whats up faaaaaag ” which was a kind of goofy way we allways greeted eachother . I guess this whole gun violence thing in the city thing is taken for granted and people just try not to pay it no mind but when it happens to someone you know you it really opens your eyes . It is so heartless that some want to be gangster , punk walks around with a gun thinking they can do as they please . Well guess what , I hope they catch you and send you to hell you heartless prick . Shawn will never be forgoten in my heart . It just hurts me so much every day because i just lost my best friend ……….
