There are no words at this time that will heal the pain all of you are feeling. Brenda I have read your passage on facebook about the things and the times you got to spend with Shawn hold tight to those memories no one can ever take those away from you. Hold on to one another and let your friends and community help you in this process. I am truly sorry for your loss, things like this seem so completely unfair. Take Care one and all.

As a child, my family and I spend a lot of time with Brenda, Mike and the kids. I have a lot of great memories of playing crazy games with Shawn, including calling the operator! It is so heartbreaking to think he is gone. He was a great friend, husband and father.
Our sincere condolences,

Dear Brenda and family. It is with saddened hearts we write this. Matthew has fond memories of coaching Shaw hockey and has shared with us some of the humorous stories about him. He helped Wyatt become the great goalie he is. He became a fine adult always lending a helping hand. I can't imagine as a mother what the months and years ahead will hold for you but you are a strong woman with good people surrounding you.
God bless you all.
Matthew, Carolyn, Wyatt, Luke, Elicia & Children

It is with heavy heart and great sadness that I send these words of condolence to the Gibbons family. Although words cannot take away the pain and grief you experience, please find support in those that surround you and grieve with you at this time. Shawn was the type of guy that left a lasting impression.

Larry and Shelley Killens
   Posted Tue July 15, 2014
Shelley and I spent the evening reading the condolences that have been expressed by some very sincere caring people.. There is a common thread that comes through by all and that is a loss of what to say. What to say that reaches out and eases your grief, what to say that expresses their deep emotions, what to say that satisfys sharing how we understand.

I have to say that Shelley and I are lost and are at a loss as well. We feel helpless to come even close with satisfying our desire to accomplish that end. You need to know Mike, Brenda, and family that our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. There is nothing that we would not do to ease your loss, but sadly cannot.
