Shawn and I worked together at OilDri, but I left in December of 2019. Shawn had sharp mind and a quick wit. I can still see Shawn's face and hear his voice. The Kreuzberger family has my Condolences.

I remember Shawn's mom took us to Kennywood in kindergarten and we had to go out the back door of Noah's ark, we were both so scared. I remember how much his mom loved him, as I am sure she always did. So sorry for your loss
