    Lincoln was a great guy and we all loved working with him. He never had a bad thing to say and always brought a smile to everyone’s face. If I asked him to do any job or favor, he would happily do it and not complain..He always hung up the phone saying “Thank you.” He’s the kind of guy everyone would want working for them. You will be missed Linc, but I know you will be looking down on your family and friends and it’s not good-bye, just see ya later.

    Dear Shaw Family:

    My heart goes out to you all. Although, I did not know Lincoln, it sounds like he was a wonderful person and will be sorely missed. I have a daughter that age and I know what a hole she would leave in our hearts if the Lord took her home to be with HIM. There is NOTHING anyone can say or do to help you through this very dark time. But, be sure many prayers are being lifted up for you all.

    May God richly bless you and strengthen you and your family.

    The Shaw Family, I only met Linc once and that was recently in Florida when we went for training, we talked at dinner and when we were waiting for and riding in the limo to the airport, other than that, only heard his voice on conference calls.
    I have to say, he wore me out, he loved to talk. He talked about his daughter, his motorcycle, and cars, and his daughter more.

Please know that I will be praying that God helps you through this most difficult of times. Your son was always smiling. He came out to the house often to discuss motorcycles, and paint jobs with my son Jacob. I am so very sorry for your loss. Words seem inadequate at times like these.

Interacted with him through e-mail but finally got to put a face to the name. He was a very nice guy. Full of life and always smiling. I will always look back on that moment and smile.
