Shane was my firstborn child, Shawn was born 1 year and 1 day after and they grew up so close. Shane was always way past the mentality of a young man his age, we always said he had " an old soul" He knew things that we had no idea he knew about. He wrote poetry from the age of 8, his first 2 poems being in church on Easter sunday about the crucifixion of Christ. He wrote of issues like child abuse, abortion, homeless, molestation, drugs, etc,etc. His poetry is deep and very moving and is shared on several site, one being his memorial site Lighthouse 4 Jesus at http://l4jesus.com . He will always be loved and missed by all who met him, definitely one of a kind. I always told him God broke the mold when He created him, there was none like him anywhere. He would always smile that crooked little grin we all loved. That grin could melt hearts. Shane, you are so loved and missed. Mom & Shawn
