I really wish I could make it but I can't. I am so sorry there is so much to say but let me just start with how Shawna was an angel on this earth and now she is a queen in the clouds. I guess I should start with how much she meant to me...

She was the reason for the sun to rise...

And the stars to light the sky...

Her smile made rainbows look like trolls

And her voice touched our souls...

Her beauty was like no other...

And now we come together with one another.

Let us have our moment of peace and silence.

For Shawna the one we love and wont be forgotten.

I offered to be Rikers step father... I love Shawna more than anyone could ever know.

I gave her my home when life was hard for her... I just never realized that it would come to this... I am sorry... I have no clue what it is like to be her parent right now but please know I am so sorry for your lose... I feel great woe but I know it is no where close to the pain in your hearts...

I will be there in spirit Shawna.

Will always love you - Dylan Patrick Resciniti
