    When I heard of Lindsey’s passing this week I was shocked and sadden. Although I only worked with him for a brief time, he was someone I could consider a friend. He was one of the nicest person I know. I would like to extend my condolences to his family and friends during this tragic time. God bless you all!

    I am saddened to hear of my classmate, sports teammate, and friend’s passing. Shawn and our friends had some good times while at Rustburg High School, and unfortunately, lost contact as our lives progressed into different directions.

    Ann – I remember how gracious you were to have me in your home as a teenager, and can’t express how sorry I am for your tragic loss. My condolences also to Onna and children; I wish I would’ve been able to meet you all through Shawn. May God Bless you all and may He lead you through.
