It reads:

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Kuykendall,

I was deeply saddened to hear of your son’s passing. I can only imagine the grief of a parent losing a child and my heart goes out to you both.

I hope you and your family find great strength in the shared memories of Shawn’s life at this toughest of times and also in the future.

The football family has lost a fine young man, and everyone’s thoughts at Chelsea FC are with you, your family and Shawn’s friends.

With much sympathy,

Yours sincerely,

Jose Mourinho
