      My deepest condolences to Shawn's family and friends.... my heart hurts for your loss Although Shawn and I hadn't seen each other or spoken through these years, I will treasure the memories I do have, from first meeting him as one of the neighborhood kids to then becoming cousins and ultimately graduating high school together. Love, prayers, and strength to you during this difficult time.

      To the Darraugh and Yanochko families. We are deeply saddened by the unexpected passing of Shawn. He was one of a kind and so sincere in everything he did. His students loved him as well as other adults he had worked with. He will truly be missed. May his soul now Rest In Peace.

      I was heartbroken to hear this!  I am so very sorry.  Shawn was the best cousin to me when we were kids.  He used to ride the rollercoaster with me at Angela Park because he knew I was nice and sweet and funny.
