Shawn Dobry Feb. 27, 1991-June 19, 2010

I attended the wake today for a young man who was killed last Saturday. Shawn was an incredibly sweet guy who made everyone who knew him smile. In every picture of him, there is a sparkle, a light in his eyes that makes you know he had love for life. He was killed because someone was playing with a loaded handgun while drinking. This tragedy did not have to happen. It has torn our entire community apart as we wait to find out the truth. Today we mourn our loss. You can read about the case here. And if you go here, you can connect with other people who are missing him or donate money for a scholarship in Shawn's name.

Please pray for the his family as they will need strength and comfort in the coming days.
