I think, a short line saying "In loving memory of Shawn Williams" placed under the TTD-banner at the top of the page, visible for every user and guest, would be suitable.

Same here...

2012-05-19, 07:49 AM
for those that didn't know him personally, i'll just say...he was a immensely strong person who, despite enduring years of pain & exhaustion & god knows what else, stayed a kind positive soul...there are few in the world who could say the same

i'm grateful for TTD, for bringing many of us together in the "real world", forming true friendships with folks i woulda never met otherwise...Shawn was one of those people

lots of memories & stories, for that i am grateful...much love brother, you will be missed

R.I.P. shawn & healing vibes to family and friends

2012-05-19, 08:02 AM
This news just saddens me beyond! Shawn would sometimes talk to me about his illness but only when I prodded him! He was so nonchalant about it...soooo very positive and I love and respected how he used all his energy to trot around America to see live shows! The strength that he showed after that horrific accident he had a few years ago just showed the fight he had in him! I admired his sunshiny demeanor ......he definitely will be missed and thought of often! So sorry for your loss Dave...RIP Shawn xoxoxoxoxo

2012-05-19, 08:45 AM
Rest in peace...
My condolences to his family and friends.

i remember his nick well from when i used to hang out, he played guitar, the last thread that i remember from back then was a show in pa or ohio he was gonna meet some ppl from here at, there were pics afterwards i think

somebody said sleep in the stars and i bet you'll dance in them too! :wook:

i'm at an age where i'm losing ppl left and right and it sucks to see somebody my daughters age go but whether you believe it or not i say:

the ohgreatkeepa will keep ohkeepa while we wait for our turn to go through the big sleepah we won't even know no we won't make a peepah 'til we rub the sleep from our eyes finally free like ohkeepa

We never met but I NEVER came across an offensive word to, or about, him.

We'll miss you buddy.

Yes very sad to hear you have lost one of your family members and friend. :disbelief. My Sincere condolences to his family. I don't know how much he would have suffered from his physical illness, but can understand to a certain degree, being that I had lost an older sister back in 1999 at the age of 27 yrs who died from Scleroderma.

RIP fellow music lover. :(

Condolences to you and the rest of your family.

Couldn't have said it better than my trading brother LB - Shawn: you were obviously loved and though I didn't know you, I hope when I'm gone, people will say even half as many kind things about me.

Rest in Peace, brother, safe journey :wave::wave::wave:
