Shawn, I had the privilege of seeing and spending some time with your brother Ryan recently after all these years. He even remembered me taking you guys to Clark Park way back during 1983, before I moved away! Ryan looks, talks and even his mannerisms remind me so much of your dad! I believe you would be proud of the man he has become, (not only raising his own child), but your brother Christopher's child as well! Rest in Peace my #2 hero, (only behind my Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ), until we meet again! Love Uncle Joey

We spent a lot of time together in scout 104. I left for greener pastures, and ran into you at number 10 while there on a prisoner pick up right before you transferred to the east side. Just thinking about you today, and reflecting. My academy classmates Katie Ryan and Richard Scalf are there with you. None of you shall ever be forgotten. Rest easy my brothers and sister in arms, until we meet again.

I did not know you, but I was thinking about you today. I didn't begin my career until almost 15 years after your passing, but people from the Ninth Precinct and all over our department still talk about you. Thank you for what you did that night.

I often think about Shawn's family and fellow officers and hope they are all doing well. I was involved in locating Langford and Moore in Erie, Pa after the shooting. Our thoughts and prayer go out to everyone involved on this 20th anniversary.
