"Memorial Day Weekend 2017 just swinging by to give you a shout."
William L. Peterson of El Paso, TX. USA

"Merry Christmas Brother."
William L. Peterson of El Paso, TX

"Another Memorial Day so another visit. It is like that Doctor’s appointment you don’t want to keep because you know the news is never good. However it gives us a moment to reflect and thank those who went before us for their service to the Nation and to each other Brother and Sister. That crazy Renegade Battalion sure paid a heavy price but wow what a legacy. I don’t know I guess I am just trying to find a way to make sense and maybe justify it all? Know you’re missed and thought of and that every single one of us wishes it had ended differently."
William L. Peterson of El Paso, TX

"Merry Christmas Shawn, I wish you were home with family and friends. God Bless Buddy."
William L. Peterson of El Paso, TX

"Memorial Day tomorrow. I know I hit these pages the day before and people may wonder why I always I do it the day before well; the list has just grown too long and the pain on that day has become pretty serious. I will visit the grave of a buddy tomorrow and you know what would make this better? Had you and so many others not had to go way back in 2004 I think tomorrow would have been just another day. Maybe I am being selfish but I’d trade every single Memorial Day for the chance to have you guys sitting at some Barbeque just shooting the bull. Know you are thought of and that you are missed."
William L. Peterson of El Paso, TX

"I miss you buddy. I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to become your friend while in the Army through AIT and then at Ft Hood. I remember we used to always talk about hockey and where we would live after the Army . Everytime I take the ice you are with me. I have your dog tags painted on my helmet. I hope your family is extremely proud of you. Rest easy my friend,"
Sgt. Ryan Elek of New Hampshire

"Not a day I don't think about you bro and growing up together. So many great stories I tell about our childhood. I know you're looking down smiling on us and I pray to God I make you proud and look up to you always. You taught me so much. Ten years. Seems so long, yet it seems only fitting that I remember us sitting on lawn chairs drinking Lipton Brisk in front of our ocean. Haha. RIP brother!"
Michael of Indian Trail, NC

"10 years ago, July 8,2004,was the worst day of my life! There is a hole in my heart that can never be filled, but the memories, and oh what great ones you left me, bring joy to me. Always on my mind, forever in my heart! Until we meet again."
Mom of Beaver, Pa.

"Just a "Hello" from a fellow Renegade, it has been a while sure wish it went down differently."
William Peterson of El Paso, TX

"Remembering you....always."

"Just swinging by to say hello and let you know you're missed. A lot of the 4-5 guys have started Facebook pages to stay in touch and you know we talk about the old days. Well I just wanted you to know I was thinking about you and I'll stop in again sometime soon."
William L Peterson of El Paso, TX

"I am a teacher in The Colony, TX. A few years ago, my 7th grade class chose some veterans to honor by buying a brick to be placed at The Colony Veteran's Memorial. One of the Soldiers we chose was Shawn, although we never knew him. We placed a brick for him there. I can send you a picture of his brick there, if you let me know where to send it. I visit the memorial every Veteran's Day, and wonder about his family. I wish I had seen this site earlier."
Brenda Ethridge-Heithold of The Colony, Texas

"Miss you. Always in my heart and on my mind."
Sissy

"To The Family of SPC Shawn Davies: Thank you for such a son who would join up when he did not have to. Who would go when he was not called. He must have been an amazing young man. Thank you for your sacrifice Davies family. We feel your sorrow and understand your loss. Our nephew Sgt.Jacob Demand died Sept. 2004. All gave some, Some Gave all."
Vernon DeMand

"So today is Memorial Day, a day in which many again will fire up the Barbeques and fish or simply relax in their homes and amongst friends. Yes a couple of years ago I started a correspondence just like this and no I won’t go on a rant about how I feel the people of our nation don’t fully understand what our Republic stands for or used to. I will only release a sigh of a good many emotions for your sacrifice.
Would I rather have you all back in our lives and hoping to hear from you once again, certainly but I understand what your sacrifice meant and hope for those for whom you gave it will carry the brilliant torch of an idea forward into that uncertain night. I am truly respectful of that sacrifice and am honored to have you as friends and colleagues and thank you for all you have given.
In the words of Abraham Lincoln or John Hays (White House Secretary)
“I feel how weak and fruitless must be any word of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save.
I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.”
God Bless."
William Peterson of El Paso, TX

I Rest in Peace! I HONOR your Service to our Great Nation! may God Bless and Comfort your Family and friends!

SFC Generalao (RET) of Killeen, TX USA

"Missing so much. There are people that come into your live that are special and make such a difference. That seeing them makes your day. After all these years your smile still is etched in my heart."

"Thinking of you, so bitter sweet. I smile and cry at the same time. I thank God that you were put into my life."

"I am missing you bad right now. Sometimes the pain is like it was yesterday. I can promise I will never forget you."

"You are so loved and missed!!"
Mom

"I thought I saw you today, walking in that special way. Then reality set in, and I knew it could'nt have been. But for the briefest moment I was able to pretend, and think of all the great things, that really should have been. But a breif moment to pretend was all I was allowed, as the boy who looked like you walked into the crowd. I wanted to follow him, get a glimpse, maybe a hug. But I knew it was'nt you, the one I truly love. So I wiped away my tears and slowly walked away, my broken heart was aching, because I thought I saw you today."
Sissy

"Uncle shawn its been a while since ive wrote to you! I miss you so much words cant even explain! I wish everyday that you were here with us, i still picture that smile on your face! When you were sad you use to pretend you werent to put a smile on all of our faces! One day we will meet again and i cant wait to give you a big a hug! I love you so much and i know you watch over me to make sure im ok! I love you uncle shawn!!"
Amanda

"On Sunday I talked with Aaron's Dad from NJ. He reminded me of how we were little terrors when we were younger...haha. How I miss playing b-ball with you - I was always trying to beat you but most of the time you would win. It's so weird to think about my younger years and how fast time has gone by. You are still in my thoughts and your family in my prayers."
Joelle of Aliquippa, PA

"I still remember where I was, what I was doing, and who I was talking to when I heard. It still seems impossible after all this time. I don't know why but the other day I was thinking about how you said you would like to live in Pflugerville when you got out. lol. Which by the way is not a bad option!! There is a group of us talking about planning a Killeen/Austin reunion. Probably more so Austin. Heck we may just hit Wild Country and the small bars for old time sake!! Please watch out for my brother. He only has til Sept in that hole. Isn't that crazy all this time has past and they are STILL there. You know the funny thing everytime I go home I see the mayor on tv and I swear you guys look so much alike. lol. Watch over all the guys and gals out there. You are so missed.

"June 2009: I am sitting here at my desk thinking of Ryan, Adam and Amanda and then I look up and see the picture of you, Ryan, Adam and Bobby with Uncle Bob - the Paintball gang. I can't believe that it will be five years next month that you have been gone. The thing I miss the most about living in Maryland is you all coming down for a week, driving me crazy, and most of all having fun. You are never far from our thoughts Shawn, We miss you. Uncle Bob and Cindy"

I wish with all of my heart you would have been marching physically in the Parade but you were THERE standing beside me, giving me the streingth to do what I have to do. Thank you my beloved Son, I am so thankful God gave you to me for 22 years. Love and miss you so much, Mom"

"As a Soldier, you learn to count on each other for strength & courage. When one of those Soldiers is taken away, the effects can be devastating. Rather than fall apart, the comrades of that fallen Soldier pull together & find strength to honor their brother in arms. This poem is dedicated to the six Soldiers of the 4th Battalion, 5th Air Defense Artillery "Renegades," who, while serving in Baghdad, Iraq, from 2004-2005, were lost to the war on terror but never forgotten. SGT Thomas Rosenbaum, SPC Shawn Davies, SPC Blain Ebert, SPC James Price, SPC Jeremy Regnier, and PFC Justin Yoemans, your sacrifice and memory will live in our hearts forever.

A Renegade's Home

Stuck in this desolate place all alone,
Halfway 'cross the world from a place I call home.
Day in and day out with the same group of men,
A bond none can break, nor few comprehend.
The friends that we make and the bonds that we share,
The enemy can take, but never can tear.
The freedoms we live with, cherished liberty,
They come with a price for freedom, isn't free.
No one knows this more than the Soldier himself,
The gift that we cherish is paid with his life.
Now we have lost him, there's another one gone,
But the memory of our comrade will forever live on.
No awards can be given or be placed on his chest,
Everyone knows he's a Soldier and he was one of the best.
Our wounds may heal, but our hearts still remain
Filled with the memories and mended with pain.
For there's nothing like the sound of a twenty-one-gun salute,
Or the playing of Taps that will make one go mute.
Now he's sent to a place, no longer alone,
Take the Renegade home, take him home.

Remembering you, Davies, and your family on this 11th day of the 11th month."
Amy Thompson of Charlottesville, VA

"We honor you today, Shawn, & all that you did for us & this great country of ours. We miss you more than words could ever express. We think about you always & wish that you could be here with us. The Lord had his own plans, though, & our loss is heaven's gain. We love you & miss you so much. HAPPY VETERAN'S DAY!!"
Joe & Nancy of Aliq., Pa

"Happy Veterans Day!! Its all about the people who served and are serving. I've never forgot and never will. I pray for your family for the pain of losing you. I know that nothing makes it better. Take care of my family out there. Bring them home. Miss you cuz ;)"

"Not a day goes by that I dont think about you and wonder. Always and forever in my thoughts & prayers, always a Hero, never forgotten, love you"

"We had a really good time at the picnic last week!! It's so nice that your mom & dad have this annual picnic to celebrate your life with all of us. It was so nice to see the Shawn M. Davies Scholarship winners there, too. You would have been so proud!! We love you & think about you always & smile when we think about you & the kind, compassionate & fun-loving person that you were. We are so blessed that you were in our lives even if it was only for a short while. We thank God for you- the most precious gift he gave to all of us."
Joe & Nancy of Aliquippa

"It worked he's coming home!!!!!"

"Shawn,
Its so insane to think that all this time has past. I know that you are looking out for all of us. Laughing. But looking out for us. I know that you are looking out for my husband over there. I pray you keep him safe. My son is almost 2!! Can you believe that. I think of your family a lot and pray for them. A friend of mine was injured in a bombing and his best friend past away. It just so scary sometimes. I just pray you keep an eye out for all of them. Give them the strength and bravery they need. Stay with my husband during missions. Our son needs his daddy home!!"

"Looking back on the memory of the dance we shared underneath the stars above,
For a moment all the world was right,
How could I have known you'd ever say goodbye,
And now Im glad I didnt know
The way it all would end the way it all would go,
Our lives are better left to chance,
I could have missed the pain but I would have missed the dance.

I know you have been leading my path. I know you are looking after my future. I love you. The world will never be the same."

"Out of sight, out of mind. Never!! Shawn you are always on my mind and in my sight. Today marks the saddest day in my life. I wish somehow it could have been me instead of you, but that wasn't in Gods plan. You are in all the beauty I see because of the beautiful person you were. Today there was a rainbow that was so beautiful and somehow I knew when I stood and looked at Gods beauty you were looking at me. You always knew how I loved rainbows. I think of the fun you gave me in the 22 years I had you (oh yes there were times that were not so nice) I remember all with the laughter and love. Saturday we will celebrate you with the picnic. You will be here in our thoughts and having a good time because you always loved a good party. Please keep the tears you shed from falling on the party and give us your beautiful smile which will create a beautiful sunny day. Always love and miss you."
Mom

"Shawn, July is here again and I find myself thinking of all the 4ths we spent together, and the last 4 that we did not. I have been letting the pain of the last 4 without you get in the way of the 22 with you. Time to let go. I have carried a huge quilt of the conversation we had of you joing the amry and me telling you I thought it was the best thing for you to do. I have finally decided that it is not my fault what happened. God took you that day because it was his plan not mine or yours. I have no idea why things happen the way they do but I do know that I cannot control the fate of anyone. I also have struggled with the fact I never got to say goodbye. Maybe because there is not and end. I like to believe today that we will some day just pick up where we left off. I know that no matter what, I do not have to hurt myself worse when something else is hurting me. I will get through this July knowing that I had 22 of them that were so special, and carry those memories instead of holding on to pain. If it were not for pain we would never know happiness. So I guess I have learned that I will hurt and I will feel joy, God gave us theese emotions we are ment to feel all of them and work through not cover them up.Today I thank God for putting you in my life, I don't hate him for taking you away. I really believe that all people and situations are put in front of us to learn from and I find that looking at things in that way makes life alot easier. I know that I learned alot from you. You always found a way to laugh even when you hurt, and that whatever was going on good or bad that it would pass. So happy 4th little brother I love and miss you, but I am still here for a reason, maybe for someone else to learn something from me. I know that there is something in all of us to give and recieve. When I stopped thinking everything was about how I felt it really opened my eyes."

"I am very sorry to hear about your child’s death through the website Fallen Heroes of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. We would like to invite you to join us at noon on this Saturday, May 17 at the Homewood Cemetery located in Squirrel Hill (1599 S. Dallas Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15217 – phone for directions 412.421.1822) to honor the fifth anniversary of the death of Gary G's (former WEDO disc jockey) daughter, Cathy, who died in a fire. Upon Cathy's death, Gary started Cathy G Charities to carry on her work with the local homeless (on streets and in shelters), Veterans Administration, anyone who has a need etc. I do pro-bono work as the charities Public Relations Representative.

Since Gary is a disabled veteran, he especially wanted to invite the relative/friends of fallen heroes to our memorial. We have invited others who lost their sons and daughters and Gary will be stocking the beautiful cemetery pond with 900 goldfish and releasing doves after reading the names of the sons and daughters who have passed on.

Thank you for your interest. You can reach me immediately by phone at 412.673.9443 or Gary at 412.583.8560 or 412.373.5687. Please let us know if you can attend and the name of your loved one.

"Hey Shawn, It's time for me to leave the message that I think you want to know. I'm doing well, I've started over and I'm really liking this life. I got some help, and I finally came to terms with you being gone. I still miss you alot. The difference now is I really know that there is a reason why God does things and it's not for me to figure out why it is just what it is. I still hurt about you, but I know that it is ok to feel that pain. I don't have to cover it up any more. I will always love you. Now it's time to let go and live. I know you would want that and I know that you are happy with what I have been doing. I love you!!!"

"Wow, Shawn, I never knew this site existed. Bob and I were talking about you just yesterday. You were such a nice kid. You are an example of someone who had to grow up quickly and pay the ultimate price for our freedom. You may have succombed to a non combat related illness but you made it. You grew up into the man you are and were going to be. I remember you getting drunk at our house and talking to yourself in the mirror behind our bar. I was a little upset then as none of you kids was old enough to drink, but hey, you were home with us and looking back it was quite funny and a lot of fun. I wish you were still here with us. Bob and I both miss you. In the words as a former marine's wife, Semper fi."

I lost my brother in 1984 due to a car accident. The one thing that gets me through the hard times is a country song called "Holes in the floor of Heaven". Take care and I'm so sorry for your loss."

Its been two years since that horrible day, when the world lost a great person. I'm sorry I didn't write anything sooner, I just couldn't. I am one of Davies friends from the Cav, and I was there in Iraq with him. Davies was a great soldier and an even better freind. Brdlygnnr@yahoo.com"

"We haven't written in a while, but we think about you often. Can't believe it's been 2 yrs. since you left us. Time goes by so fast. As the patriotic holidays come & go we especially think of you & miss you. We know that God has a plan for all of our lives. He knows when each person will be born & when each person will leave this world. We didn't think we would have to say good-bye to you so soon. You truly made a difference in this world & we have been blessed by your presence. We love you & miss you."
joe & Nancy of Aliquippa, Pa.

"Hey, Happy 4th of July. I just wanted to let you know that I still think of you every day. Especially today. I cannot believe that it has been almost 2 years. I still am trying to figure out how to do this without you. No matter how long you are gone I still promise to think of you every day. I owe that to you, and much more. Please know that my love for you has grown even stronger thinking of how things used to be. God put you here for a reason. I like to think it was to bring so much happiness to everyone you met. I love you, always will."

"Everytime I think of you I can't help but smile!! You are one of kind and never will be forgotten by anyones live that was lucky enough to cross yours. Look out for the Ft Hood boys!! I miss you more than words can say!!"

"Shawn, today,as always I mourn you more than anyone will ever know, but I also HONOR YOU!! I am so proud of you and proud to have been your Mother. You give me streingth to get through every day, you are the smile on my face. I wish Memorial Day was what it was for me in May 2004, sence then it isn't, I never thought I would be honoring MY SON on this day. I hope you know YOU ARE OUR HERO! Keep us safe.
Love and MISS YOU, MOM"

"Shawn, Hey it's me again. This Memeorial day I find myself missing you more than ever. I so wish you were here even though I know you can't be. I keep thinking of all the crazy things and funny things you had done. You had such a zest for life. I think that I have learned from you to make every day as good as it can be. I love thinking about how much fun you were to be around and keep those memories so close. Yes there were bad times to, but some how the bad has slipped away and has been replaced by the good. Funny how someone so young can leave such an impression of his life on people. You were a great brother and yet more than that, I love you and will always keep you close. Sissy"
Sissy

"Davies, hey bro you've been on my mind a lot as Memorial Day approaches. All the memories run though my head like they're on repeat hour after hour. I'm so proud of you and all our other friends that are in the military. I don't know if I would have enough balls to do what you guys do everyday. As I see people that don't respect this country, what it stands for, or our military it weighs heavy on my heart. I don't understand how people can be so cold hearted and careless as young men/women give their lives everyday so they can abuse their freedom. I just want you to know you're always on my mind and forever in my heart. You’re family is and will always be in my prays I miss you bro. please keep everyone safe"
MP of Aliqyippa Pa USA

"To all,

On this weekend of road trips, barbeques and personal time with loved ones, please take just one moment of the time you have to yourself this weekend and think of those lost, those who did their best and those who completed their service to a country that has given so many opportunities and brought forth the minor accomplishments of mankind but set a precedence for how one should treat another in the pursuit of a better way of life for all. I myself feel especially humbled by the sacrifices of friends, family and those I never knew. I apologize if this sounds political but it came from the heart and I wish you and yours a wonderful Memorial Day weekend, God Bless.

Bill Peterson"

"Shawn, I always think of you I just have not wroter for a long time. Today I had such a funny memory of you. I am going to see Rick and Patti and the girls May 11. I am getting so excited. All of the sudden the memory of us being at Cedar Point came to me. We were on that indor coaster, it was so hot, people were looking at all of us like we were crazy, (not the first time that has happened), because we were yelling we have to go get our coats were going to Alaska too see Rick. The coaster had an Alaskan theme. That was such a good day, I had so much fun. It was Bob, me my kids, you, Autum, Bobby and the old Kristen as we call her now. Thank you for the memories."
I love you, Sissy.

"Shawn, Dad and I attended the Memorial Dedication at Fort Hood, you and your 167 fellow soldiers are honored with love and beauty from the people of Texas. I am so proud to know that the memorial that bears your name so far from us,is so beautiful. I wish your name was not there, but it is honored with beauty and respect. I know you were smiling down on us on that beautiful day in Texas, I hope we did you proud. Flowers are starting to bloom now and everyone of them has your face on them. I miss you, think of you all the time and your name comes from my mouth a million times a day and please Shawn watch over John and Corsi, you are the angle on their sholdier. Love Mom"

"To the Family of Shawn Davies:
My heart breaks again as I sign yet another guest book of another courgeous young soldier who gave their life so selflessly. I wish I never found myself in a position to have to sign another guestbook for the rest of my life. We lost our son 12/1/05.
I know first hand there are no words right now that will bring you the comfort and peace you need. Just know that you are not alone. My heart, thoughts, and prayers are with you all as you mourn this loss. We don't know each other, will probably never meet, but will forever be united in the loss of our Heroes. We have, unfortunately joined a group none of us wanted to join, an ever-growing group of families in this situation. May God grant you peace and strength to get through this and be able once again to smile at a memory rather than have only the tears that flow so easily now. To be so proud of your loved one and so saddened at the same time is a mix of emotions very difficult to deal with. I am sorry that I never knew your soldier personally, but none of these courageous men and women will be forgotten. They will never be able to be replaced, but sometime, someday your loving memories will help to sustain you. This courageous soldier will forever now be your Angel watching over you all for the rest of your lives. It's what brings me some measure of peace and comfort and I hope it will you as well. To his family and friends in pain, I offer this comfort. When you find yourself in that dark sorrowful place, think not only of how you will miss him, but instead recall the years, days, hours and minutes gifted to you by his presence. If you ever want to talk, I'm only an e:mail away and would love for you to tell me more about your Hero. God Bless this courageous soldier and family.

i keep you in my prayers and in my thoughts, you are "Never Forgotten" "Always Remembered""
d sharek of jacksonville , nc

"Shawn, I've been thinking about you a lot lately bro, making me both happy and sad. I've been sitting here for about an hour now just reading messages left for you and thinking about all the crazy * parties we had and all those great times just cruising around in the memum causing trouble together. I never really thought about how much my life would be affected if I lost one of my close friends, until I lost one of my bestfriends you. You were like a brother to me all the things we talked about, stuff we did, and all the time we spent together. You were one of my true friends we always had each others back no matter what. The longer I sit here and think about you the more I realize what a huge part of my life you were, almost every memory I have during high school has you in it. You were a great friend that I will never forget and there will be a void in my life which no one will be able to fill. All I can hope for is that I can be half the friend you were to me.
Love you bro, miss you more then you’ll ever know. I’m sure you know me and Jess are getting married. I wish you could standing beside me on my big day, but I guess god had a bigger plan for you. rest in peace bro, I’ll see you when I get there, and you better have a big * party planed for that day dude cause I’m missing you. peace I love ya"

"A New Year is beginning & we find that our thoughts are about you. Sometimes it still feels like a dream & soon we'll all wake up & things will be the way they were. During the Christmas season we think about the birth of our Savior & wonder what it must have been like on that day more than 2,000 yrs. ago when He came into this world. We can only imagine His smiling face & His awesome power, but you see Him & walk with Him each day. Someday we will join you, but for now, we remember you, your laughter, your sense of humor, your love for your country & your love for family & friends. We miss you!!!"

"Hey Shawn, It's the day before Thanksgiving. Cant help but think of all the Thanksgivings we shared, and how much fun we had. Started to make me really sad. I think that this year I should be thankful for the time I did spend with you and how much love was shared. I will always miss you, but I think that you would rather I think of the good times we had than sit and cry for the time we are not together. Thank you, I love you."

"Sunny days seem to hurt the most.
I wear the pain like a heavy coat.
I feel you everywhere I go.
I see your smile, I see your face,
I hear you laughin' in the rain.
I still can't believe you're gone.

It ain't fair: you died too young,
Like the story that had just begun,
But death tore the pages all away.
God knows how I miss you,
All the hell I've been through,
Just knowin' no-one could take your place.
An' sometimes I wonder,
Who'd you be today?

Would you see the world? Would you chase your dreams?
Settle down with a family,
I wonder what would you name your babies?
Some days the sky's so blue,
I feel like I can talk to you,
An' I know it might sound crazy.

It ain't fair: you died too young,
Like the story that had just begun,
But death tore the pages all away.
God knows how I miss you,
All the hell I've been through,
Just knowin' no-one could take your place.
An' sometimes I wonder,
Who you'd be today?

Today, today, today.
Today, today, today.

Sunny days seem to hurt the most.
I wear the pain like a heavy coat.
The only thing that gives me hope,
Is I know I'll see you again some day.

Some day, some day, some day.

"Hey, it's me. Just wanted to leave a quick message. I have been thinking of you just as I promised. A group of Marine's past on, it has been on the news and papers they are from this area. One of the guys sister had talked to the reporters. I feel for her and all of the family's. When she was talking it took me back. I know exactly where she is at now. I want to call and tell her something I just don't know what. I know that no matter what any one has to say right now does not matter it will not help or ease the pain. Time does not change things, it does not stop pain, tears, hurt, or feelings of missing. It does give you more time to put your mind at rest and to remember good times, and memories. I love you, and wanted you to know once again I will always think of you."

"As I write this today, I miss you so much still.
Your place in my heart no one will ever fill.
Time does go on, with new memories made.
But memories of you will never fade.
You were so special to me, dear to my heart.
I never dreamed we would be so far apart.
Even though it's been a year it seems like yesterday.
You were there, making us happy in your own specal way.
You always made us laugh even when you hurt inside.
When it came to making people happy you swallowed your pride.
You were so young, but I learned so much from you.
Your friendship and love was always true.
So here's to you today, and forever.
You will live in our hearts, and be forgotten never."

But my dad said to me that cry as much as you need, but eventally you will have to move on with your life. You can't morn forever. I can't believe its Really already almost been a year! in basicly 2 days! I remember the day me and my mom made a basket of cookie for you and sent them over. I remember being in school writting a note for you that i colored red white and blue and made a star on it. I also remember the time up to his funeral..... One of my ways of being ok is remebering the good times, talking to family and friends,and making the website in your memory. I hope EVERYONE can find a way of remembering you and knowing that you wouldnt want us to morn forever. But at this time i want everyone to stay strong! Go bless you ... WE LOVE YOU SHAWN AND WILL NEVER FORGET YOU!!!!"

"Hey Shawn, It's memorial day weekend. I'm am thinking of you. Just got back from Fort Hood. They had a really nice service to welcome home and to remember the soldiers left behind. I wish that I was there to welcome you home but things did not work that way. You are not only thought of this weekend, I promise to take time everyday to think of you. They say that the youth today is going in a bad direction. I don't think that they know what they are talking about. Being at Fort Hood, I realized there are a lot of young people putting there lives on the line for there country and are proud to do it. I think they should recognize that before puting down the youth of today. Well I just wanted to write a quick note. I love you."

We wish we could have had more time to spend with you so that we could have gotten to know you better, but we are so very thankful for the time that we were blessed with.You were a faithful & loyal friend, a loving & devoted son & brother & a dedicated, courageous soldier.We are so very proud!!!
