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.
