I just have to share another memory. We were in middle school and all of us girls thought we would start wearing bad makeup. Shawn had a Mary Kay consultant over to the house because he said “ if you’re going to wear it you’re not going to look like clowns.” Or something like that🤣. We sat around the kitchen table and the lady taught us to put it on the right way. He was such a great dad. ❤️
