Celebrating the life of William J. Shaughnessy
Thank you for signing William J. Shaughnessy's Guestbook
My condolences to the Shaughnessy family. I pray God comforts the family during this difficult time. May the many cherished memories of William comfort his family and friends. A comforting thought to keep in mind is at Revelation 21:4 "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain will be anymore. The former things have passed away." The family is in my prayers and may you all have peace of mind during this time.
