Shawn Young. Dad's boy.
This online memorial was created in loving memory of James Young, whose life story is told throughout this memorial website. Please sign James's guest book and let us know you came to visit. We will remember James forever. James Jr was born on October 8, 1999. I talked his mother in to letting us name him after me but I went by Jim and she decided to call him Shawn. That was fine with me and I was proud as could be. He was my pride and joy even though he was Mommas boy when he was younger . As he got older he started doing outdoor stuff and we grew closer than ever. We rode motorcycles and fished together. He was not only my son but my best friend. At seventeen years of age I thought he was perfect I still do. He was in pain and we did not see the signs. Shawn took his life on March 25, 2017. A part of me died with him that day that I don't think I will ever get back. We believe he is with God and no longer in pain. We will see him again. Shawn, I love you with all my heart. We all miss you beyond words. Your mother, sister, grandma and grandpa all miss you too.
