I miss you and love you so much, Auntie Shaun. You were hilarious and weird and wonderful and I can’t wait to see those qualities develop in Nora. A piece of us left the world when you did. We love you forever.
Shaun was one of the funniest people I ever had pleasure of knowing. Working with her was always filled with laughter. She had a heart of gold , was a great and compassionate nurse. As was said little Nora was her pride and joy. God bless
To my best friend Terry and all the McDevitt sisters and their families. Beautiful person taken way to young. My deepest condolences and keep the memories of your beautiful sister Shaun within your heart forever!
Dearest Terry and family, I’m so sorry for the loss of you dear sister. I pray the Lord will wrap you all in his comfort and peace and give you strength for the days ahead. Look to Heaven as your sister will give you a sign, butterfly, feather, or coins.
Much love, Donna and Don Hays
