Want to thank everyone for there support in this difficult time. God has taken my son but I know that he is gathering his troops, his angels! I can't question him anymore. My faith is strong and although me and my other two sons are grieving like crazy I have to be ok with Gods choice. And what a great choice to make. Shane was so many things wrapped up into one great package. Rebecca and Jaxson will live without him and have good days and bad but she is so strong. I couldnt be more proud of her right now. Rebecca you mean everything to me for loving him with all your heart and soul. Thank You... Jaxson MEME loves you and one day you gonna know your daddy for the wonderful man he was. Justin and Kris stay strong. Your brother wouldn't want you to walk in saddness. He's your angel now. He loved you two men like crazy. Kris chin up my son. Lucas you will hear many stories of your uncle. Don't listen to all but grasp the wonderful ones. He will be by your side watching you grow up. Shane was so happy when you were born. You had his heart just as his own son had it. Wesley and Zoey MEME knows the two of you loved uncle shane and he loved you as well. Know that and last Ashley thank you for my grandchildren. Most of all thank you for taking care of Justin. I'm so happy to know he's taken care of. One last thought, to my POPS!!! Thank you for loving my son like your own. You were his number one constant in his life. I just thank God Shane's last vision was you. I will always be greatful to you for loving him so much. I love you, for loving him through the good bad and ugly. God Bless all of his wonderful friends and family who came and saw him off to the heaven above. He was crazy about his friends. And last but not least thank you to the racetrack that gave him life for 20 years. It was where he felt happiness and joy. Race- On My Son... Till I see you again.

I have looked at this page almost everyday wondering what to say here that you don't already know? Turbo and I miss you like crazy. I am so proud of the person you were and the father you became. You are my everything and my other half. I am lost without you here and to hear you tell me " I told you so" or "Rebecca Ann Marie" even though that wasn't my name. Your life (our life) was cut too short, But I will keep the promise I made to you. I will always be yours and you will always have my heart. You stole that the day you walked into DBD's and I was your bartender. I love you Shane Michael and you will always remain in my heart. Help me to stay strong! I cant wait until I see you again to be cuddled into my pocket with you and see that big warm smile again. I LOVE YOU FOREVER

Your one and only Rebecca Ann Marie, Wifey, Baby Momma :)

Brother, Words can't explain how much this has hurt. All the hidden tears, and the hidden grieving is just eating me alive. I try to stay strong because I know you would tell me to man up but it is just so hard. You left way too soon and my only question is where to now. I cannot imagine living my entire life without 1 of my 2 brothers. It has been almost 5 weeks and it still feels like yesterday I was pulled out of English class early when Dad told me the news. I didn't believe it. You were way too young. I am just such at a loss of words but there are 3 words that I will always mean and say. I Love You.
