Just read your story—you and your partner are hero’s!....

Hi Shawn,
My name is Jaime. Your friend Robert Conley is my husband. I wanted to let you, and your loved ones know that the sound of your name still resonates in this cruel world. Your story is still spoken, your legacy lives, and will for generations to come.
Today, Robert told our daughter all about Uncle Shawn. He told her that he sometimes holds her an extra minute, or gives her an extra kiss, for you. He says you would have been an amazing Uncle to her, and wishes we would have been able to get to know you.
He credits his survival of those unforgiving New Jersey streets, to the gracious hospitality and compassion you showed him. You were his light, on the darkest days of his life. His guardian angel in the flesh. He says he is not only still alive, but a better person, a better man for having known you, for the honor of having your friendship.
Thank you Shawn, my family will be forever grateful to you and the impact you had on this Earth.

Jaime Conley
A humble wife

I saw you and you partner that day driving towards the bridge.... I was pregnant with my now 12 year old daughter One if you’s hot out of the vehicle to remove a broken tire from the middle of the road , it looked crazy outside that day all the fog and I was in my way to get in the car to cross the briefest myself ....

Shawn, you were special to so many simply because you were special. You are resting in God's arms now, free to run as you wish because you ran the race here, fought the good fight, and now are crowned for eternity with the Savior's love. Please watch over your brothers and sisters in blue, family and friends, the youth and residents who looked up to and respected you, and in a special way your academy classmates. Rest in peace and God's eternal light.

"A letter from Heaven"
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say. But first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay. I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above. Here, there's no more tears of sadness; Here is just eternal love. Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight. Remember that I am with you every morning, noon and night. That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through. God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

The JCPD lost two good cops. What has not been mentioned is that these two officers volunteered to work that day, so that officers with families could be home on Christmas. Rest in peace Shawn and Robert.
