Despite our four year age difference, I was close to my cousin Gillian when we were young. So when she announced that she was engaged, I could not have been happier! Shawn proposed to her during the NHL playoffs this past spring. They were at home watching the Preds play, and Shawn decided to snack on some Cracker Jacks. He had replaced the prize in the box with the ring. Gillian was very surprised!
