My sincere condolences to the Mette family. I was deeply saddened by the news Shawn had passed. He was a dear
friend and a great person. The world
lost a wonderful man. May God Bless
your family during this time of loss.
I know that God welcomed Shawn with great fanfare. He will always be the
"Limerick King" of Starlite Cafe. He
is watching over each of us now.

Just thinking of you buddy. Repeated one of your jokes today. Laughed and teared up at the same time.
I bet you're a beautiful angel.
Well I don`t know where to start, I guess was back in the early 80`s I meet Shawn, he was liveing with Larry and Janet Mette Aunte and Uncle. He was a little boy when I first meet Shawn and he was a typicall boy. He grew into a fine young man and went to serve his country, being a veteran myself I was proud of him. I tried to see him when ever he came home. A real Gator fan thats for sure, I think he got a rare deal out of life to get struck down in the prime of his life. He was a fighter thats for sure all the way to the end. I will miss Shawn and keep his memory in my heart forever. A brother in arms
MY DEEPEST CONDOLENCES TO SHAWN'S BEAUTIFUL WIFE AND CHILDREN AND FAMILY AND FRIENDS. SHAWN WAS MY LIMERICK BUDDY AT THE STARLITE CAFE. WE OFTENED USED CORONAS AS OUR MAIN SUBJECT FOR LAUGHS. WE KEPT IN TOUCH WHEN HE WENT TO GERMANY AND THEN FLORIDA BUT WHEN HE ASKED ME TO JOIN FACEBOOK I DID ANS OVER TIME I FOUND IT TO BE OVERWHEKMING IN KEEPING IN TOUCH WITH THE MANY NEW FRIENDS AND ENDED LEAVING FB. HE WOULD EMAIL ME PICTURES OF HIS LOVELY WIFE AND CHILDREN. SHAWN AND I BONDED IMMEDIATELY BCOZ I GREW UP IN AN AIR FORCE FAMILY. SHAWN WAS BOTH GIFTEDAND HIGHLT TALENTED IN WRITING POETRY OF ALL GENRES AS HE ALSO ENJOYED WRITING SHORT STORIES. I AM VERY SAD TO LEARN MY LIMERICK BUDDY IS NO LONGER WITH US HERE ON EARTH. THE LORD TOOK HIM FROM US AT SUCH AN EARLY AGE. MAY SHAWN REST IN PEACE. RESPECTFULLY, MONI HARRELL AKA: CAPRICHOS FROM THE STARLITE CAFE. WWW.THESTARLITECAFE.COM
I met Shawn at Osan AB in 1999 - 2000. I was very pleased to teach Shawn some of the traditions of the Philippines for he took a very keen interest in learning the ways and life styles. I will miss our conversations and misadventures we had which I treasure today forever in my heart. I know he is in a better place now. Good bye my friend...
I will never forget you, "bro"....You were such a huge part of my Starlite family. I will always have the memories and the poetry we shared. Nellie, please know you and your family are in my prayers!! God Bless You All!
I met Shawn through his lovely wife Nel at RAF Lakenheath, He was always smiling and a wonderful family man.
Rest in peace Shawn we will never forget you.
I knew Shawn in high school. He was a good friend who always knew how to make you laugh.
Thoughts & prayers for the Mette family.
May god bless you all & help you to find comfort & peace.
I am the son of an honorably discahrged Veteran of the United States Air Force. Shawn gave me the inspiration to continue my career as a writer after my dad's passing of lung cancer in early 2007.

Nel, even though we did not meet, I met your mother-in-law, Darlene and your husband, Shawn. I volunteer in the Oncology Library on the 8th floor at HRMC and I visited with Darlene on Wednesday afternoons. What a loving bond between a mother and son. I just wanted to offer you all my deepest condolences. Barbara Simpson
My Deepest condolences to the entire Mette family.
May Peace be upon you. Insan on behalf of my family we would like to extend our sincere condolences to your family. May the good LORD bless you and grant all your wishes esp during this difficult situation. We are all sad to hear what happened to SHAWN but pls bear in mind that everything on earth is just temporary. Can you remember what Miss Conde Quote before "no ni gasat ket sumabat sabat, uray lisyam ket sumabat sabat".I wish you can still remember but I do remember until now.
To Shawn may you Rest in Peace! And to all of you pls be more strong!GOD BLESS YOU ALWAYS! ASSALAMU ALAIKUM!
Nelly, I am so sorry for you and your family's loss. Shawn was my best friend in high school. I was shocked to see your post that he had passed away. Shawn was a great, funny guy when I knew him. I am so thankful that he had you and the children to love him.

Rest in Peace Shawn.

I have great memories of happy times with Shawn and Nelia from Osan AB, Korea. My wife, Aisyah and I were pleased that he used his DJ talents at our wedding reception in 2000. All of us went thru a lot of changes, personal and professional, in 1999-2002, and Shawn was there to assist with a funny story or another round. Rest in peace, Shawn!
May the good Lord be with you in this time of sorrow. Take comfort that now you have a guardian angel who will be watching over you. Nel, we are just a phone call away. Don't hesitate to call us. Our prayers are with you, Sebastian, and Skylar.
I would like to express my heartfelt condolences to Shawn's family. I was priviledged to serve with Shawn at RAF Lakenheath AFB, in England. He was a great member of our USAF. He was dedicated to his job. He always made you laugh, when you had a bad day at work, and he was a good listener. He touched all of our lives, with the people he worked with at Lakenheath. He will always be in our memories and our hearts.
Shawn was a dedicated FL fan and I am a dedicated GA fan. We had goodtimes going back and forth about our respective teams. Oh and those between the hedges stories that him and MSgt Tidwell would come up with on Friday during football season were hilarious! I am just priviledged that I was to know Shawn and his precious family. May God Bless you all and we will be thinking of you and praying for you.

My name is Judy Yeats, I am a Cna at Hrmc, I met Shawn when he came to the hospital, He was one of the nicest people that I can say that I ever met. No matter how bad he was feeling, He always had a kind word, always positive, loved all of his family very much. It was my pleasure to be his caregiver, He will be missed.. R.I.P Shawn
I am so glad I got to meet you Shawn. Maybe you will meet my son and become friends as you two had a lot in common besides the cancer. Ricky was also in the military and loved life and his wife and kids. He to had a son and daughter and wife that he hated to leave behind. He was a wonderful person and I know that you were too. If you happen to run into him,will you tell him his mother misses and loves him so much. Take care and know that you were loved very much. I'll miss you.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
First of I would like to send my condolences to the entire Mette family. I was privileaged to be stationed with Shawn for a couple years in Wyoming. I learned alot from Shawn and he was always telling funny stories of which brought good times to the Public Health office. One of my favorite things about Shawn was everytime we had an office gathering he would volunteer Neila for making a couple hundred lumpia. I will never forget you Shawn..
