Dear Friends, Tami, Chris, and John, I’m so sorry to hear that Shawnya has passed. I have such fond memories of her. In particular, when she took up for me in elementary school, standing up to my insensitive teacher. She was awesome and I know you will miss her very much. My deepest sympathies to you and your family. I love you and am praying for you. Xoxo

I had the wonderful privilege of working with Shawnya several years ago at Wal-Mart. She was a wonderful friend that I enjoyed spending time with and getting to know away from work as well. She was a very special lady that will be truly missed and loved.
