R.I.P. Shaun

Shaun passed away this morning around 8:25am. I didn't expect it to happen this quick! I'm an emotional wreck, but know Shaun is no longer in pain, and is with his Lord and Savior. I did go up to the hospital this morning, per the family's request, to say goodbye and express my condolences to the family members that were there. It was hard seeing him, but I'm glad I had the opportunity to do that! We had grown so close!! I only made it to my internship for about 30 minutes, before leaving to go to the hospital. And decided not to go back!

Please continue to pray for Shaun's family! This is going to be a very difficult time for all of us!

Note: Shaun did not die due to his CF (directly that is). He passed away from what started out as pneumonia. That's all we know. He was given a wonderful year after his transplant,and he really did live it to the fullest. He received his transplant in Dec. 07.

Thanks!
