Shawn

I lost a good friend today. I met Shawn 15 years ago where I was working. He was a new manager and I was a part time employee. I liked Shawn immediately. I was in the midst of a big struggle, I had lost about everything a person could lose, I was in the middle of a unrelenting disease that left me largely incapacitated, a broken spirit and few anchors to hold onto. You rethink everything in those moments, those are tough places to be. You need friends in those times and Shawn was that friend, a true soul brother.

Shawn was younger than I was and taught me many things that I possess to this day. I always try to learn something from others, lessons that are important. Kindness and mercy were the traits he largely possessed, traits that are missing from this world.

Shawn was authentic, real and possessed the virtues of love, he really cared for people and not in talk but in actions. He was filled with God's Light and Love and emitted that. He was a hero. We need heroes in this world, not ones that are athletic or billionaires but we need real people, these are the real heroes. We should learn from him how to have heroic compassion and truth. We will miss him but should consider ourselves fortunate to meet such a person. I will miss my friend and remember him always.



 He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life. Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children. -Revelation 21
