    Lil Cuz, I can't say that I am lost for words because since this news hit me while walking out of work, I was so in disbelief of your choice but I know you wasn't you in that moment. I just wish you could have shared some of your thoughts with me, Cousin I could have shed some light on you. I could have shared some things with you cousin to help you live a little longer, to see your kids graduate, to walk your princesses down the aisle to be given a way, to see their greatest achievements as well as your cousin. Your life was just beginning but too heavy for you to carry. You had an army behind you that could have supported or helped the best way that they could. I could go on and on Shaun because I'm hurt, and disappointed. I'm praying heavy for your mom, wife and kids as we say our earthly goodbyes�� Love you cousin!!
