No, and he doesnt care either. Sami says all he seems to care about these days are the DiMera fortune and their power. Marlena says she glimpses signs fo himself at times, but they are just too fleeting to reach.
Kimberly greets Roman and asks Bo how hes feeling. Bo sighs. Who told her? He accuses Kayla. Kayla huffs. Why does everyone accuse her of being a blabbermouth? Steve chuckles.

EJ says that Shawn did a good job, unlike his own father. EJ hopes he can raise his children as well as Shawn did. Sami says she has to go check in with Doug and Julie and make sure the twins are ok. Victor comes in and sits behind Phillip, who thought he was brining Mrs. Brady. Victor says there was a change of plans. Just as Roman notices that his mom isnt with Victor, Caroline comes in. EJ is in he back of the church, so she sees him and greets him first. She thanks him for coming. He says he would never let her down. A promise is a promise. He escorts her to her seat as Sami looks on. She sits down between Bo and Roman and waits for the service to begin.
Roman begins his eulogy. Roman promises to make it short and sweet. He knows Shawn would want them back at the pub, drinking pints in his honor. His father taught him about three things; one of which was hard work. Shawn worked hard, and he was so happy when he was finally able to open the pub. Roman has John Black to thank for that. He put up the money for it. The second thing his Pop taught him was honesty. The third was love. He and Romans mom were an example. They had some rough spots, but they always worked it out. Perhaps Shawn is gone physically, but his spirit will live on and on through his entire family. Roman smiles heavenward. The last thing he wanted to say was, Thank you, Pop.
Kimberly says she was sorry she wasnt around more often these year. She breaks down. She just loves and misses him so much. Kayla goes next and reminisces about fishing with her dad. One of the last trips they took was right before her wedding to Steve. We flash back to Shawn telling Kayla that he didnt like Steve at first, but now he can happily toast them at their wedding. He thinks Steve would make a fine husband. Back in the present, Kayla bawls. He gave her the strength to be the person she is today. She walks over to the casket an tells Shawn that she loves him and will miss him. Bo goes after Kayla. Shawn wasnt his biological father, but he was in every other way. He never gave up on him, no matter how much he messed up. Even after he found out they went related, he treated Bo like one of his own. He had a generous heart full of love. We flash back to Shawn toasting Bo. He tells Bo that he may not be his son, but he loves him just the same, no matter what he does. Bo smiles back in the present. Shawn was a hero. He lived and died as one. Bo grimaces in pain and Hope stand up, concerned he says he is fine and goes over to the casket. He whispers fiercely, Ill never forget what you did for me--what you gave.
Chloe sings a hymn as the family members each leave a little something on he casket before they head out. Hope leaves a rose, Steve; a harmonica, Shawn and Belle; a flask, Maggie; a rosary and Lexie and Abe, another rose. Marlena and Sami leave a book. Sami falls on her knees in front of Roman and embraces him. Victor leaves a framed picture. Caroline and the rest of Shawns children are left last. They all weep. Caroline flashes back to Shawn asking her to marry him again a few years ago. She heads over to the casket, May the earth rest easy over you; so easy that your soul is up and off, and on its way to God. She bawls.
Anna yells into her phone, DiMera advertising? Well, DiMera advertising stinks!
Roman proposes a toast, To Pop. The rest of the crowd toasts, To Pop! To Shawn!
Hope tells Steve, Steve, weve got to get him to the hospital right away. Steve grabs Bo and says, Ill go get the car. Ill bring him out. Hope tries not to panic, Ok.
