I just got the following message from Shawn Williams brother Dave. Shawn was a shining light despite all of the medical crap he had to endure. He will be missed. Feel free to share with the community.
Message from Shawn's brother Dave:
You don't know me but you were acquainted with my brother Shawn Williams. I'm sending this message to as many of the people that knew him as I can reach in the hopes of getting the word out to everyone who knew Shawn and grew to know him as a friend. Shawn passed away last night after his 9 year battle with relapsing polychondritis at around 8pm. No arrangements have been made yet but once they are I will share them with anyone that is interested. Email me at email@example.com
if you would like information on the viewing, funeral service, etc, when those things are decided.
Shawn was such an amazingly strong, thoughtful, and upbeat individual in spite of the cards he was dealt by life. I know the people he touched in life would want to know of his passing, that's why I'm reaching out... But I don't know everyone. If you know anyone that would want to know but I can't reach on Facebook, please let them know.
