James Rogers, June 13, 2022 Jill, Gary and I are thinking of you and give you our love and support through these sad days, and pray that you feel God’s promises of comfort and hope. Jesus said, I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die will live and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. from John chapter 11, verses 25 and 26.
Dana Fanno-Kaszynski, June 13, 2022 The first time I met Shawn & Jill I knew it was a lifetime friendship. Jill was so outgoing & vibrant, Shawn was reserved & patient, they balanced each other so well. From the short time I knew Shawn I feel blessed to have known him, both of them. None of us can understand why, I just know God has his reasons for taking our loved ones when we aren’t ready but it’s not for us to understand. Heaven has another Angel for sure. May God continue to keep you close Shawn. Rest In Peace Angel. Carrie Zamir , June 13, 2022 Shawn you will be missed. We love you and will think about you forever. I will miss talking to you about everything we talked about. No one can replace you. For the family I am so sorry for your loss and hope God will fill your hearts with love to get thru this. Love you all, Johnny, Jamie and family
