    Our sympathies to your family. We too, lost a child at 25. There is no pain like the loss of a child, no matter the age. So many questions: Why did God do this to us? is one of them. We found satisfying answers in the Bible, and learned that God DID NOT do this to us, but that he is the one that an UNDO death and bring our child and other loved ones back to us. We also learned some coping skills that helped us and his sister.

  3. Shawnann,
    I can’t believe I have to write this message. I was just thinking of you the other day, wondering where you were and where life had taken you, wishing I had a way to get in touch. I have such great memories of us growing up together, from playing with our dolls to pretending we were skaters in the X-games to plastering your walls with KISS posters. You were an amazing friend and I’m sad that distance and time forced us to grow apart. I will remember you always as the bright, spunky, unique person you were. Love you.
