Birth Date: October 29, 1968

Date of Death: May 11, 2019

 

It is with lots of love that I say I will miss my brother William Shafar. He had an amazing last night on earth that included bowling with friends, and of course it included singing one of his favorite songs at karaoke. – “Every rose has its thorn.” He had an overflowing amount of love for those he called friends and had an amazing way of accepting people for who they are, even when they did not do the same. We always ended every text conversation, phone call, or visit with LMB – so one last time I say to you brother – “I will Love You, Miss you, Bye.”
