I've been trying to think of what to say all week. I can't think of what I'll miss the most, whether it be how u would smile just like pawpaw, then burst into your own boisterous laugh....how we'd freak ppl out when we'd call each other "cousin-brother, sister".....our talks about music....animals...,..mates.,....our late night talks about anything (because u knew that I was the other one awake at ungodly hours)......the way you'd break into your "Chuck berry hop" with your, my, guitar in hand.....the way there wasn't any judgements between each other..,....bottom line, I'm going to miss all of you. It breaks my heart that you just won't be HERE. I know I'll see you again and til then, play on, laugh on, and know that I'll love on. You were the BEST ! ❤️💔

The fondest of memories are with my brother. There was not a subject we couldn't delve into, or a debate we couldn't solve. You had the biggest heart and helped anyone. If everyone would take one thing from you, it should be your compassion. I will truly miss making music together, along with being silly. I love my brother!

I wanted to say some thing profound about my friend, but I just don't have the words. So here I am rambling on with sadness and shock looking for some sentimental picture to post in hopes it will say how sad I am ,but that would be the easy way out .
Shane and I were friends for almost 9 years on Facebook at times we would chat and other time he would like or comment on something silly or controversial I would post. I will miss that,my heart is heavy and my mind sad.

I WILL MISS YOU.
Your Friend Sallie. x

I have tried to leave this message since Monday and still cannot seem to find the rights words to say.

Shane was the type of person that always had a smile on his face. He showed up early every day and waited on the rest of us to come trickling in. Shane, Scott, and I, kept each other laughing with all the silly back and forth jokes through text messages. I could send a joke to Shane then wait a couple seconds and everyone would hear Shane burst out laughing from the other side of the building. He had the loudest and most genuine laugh of anyone I know. I absolutely love how excited he was the first time he learned to use the fax machine on his own. This place definitely is not the same without him. I will remember Shane for the amazing person he was and not the events of that morning.
I have found some comfort in the faces of his parents and knowing that his animals are safe as well as seeing how much he was loved by many. We can all search for answers to the “Why or What if” questions and never find the answers we seek. My prayer for everyone is that you all comfort in each other while we celebrate the remarkable things he did in his life. I will remember Shane for his smile and daily dose of laughter, not by the events of that morning. Not a day will go by that I will not carry the memory of Shane in my heart. We will meet again and I’ll be expecting to hear him laughing from across the room.

I can recall the first time I met Shane at school, tall, and lanky, and larger than life. He was the best friend a person could ask for.

He had a boisterous laugh that could fill a room, and a passion for life an all its glory.

We became such good friends, he would come to my house, unannounced, gove my mother a big hug, and ask "Hi mom, what's for dinner"? Of course, he never had to ask, we always made sure there was enough to handle his appetite.

The times we would just sit at the riverfront, laughing, and talking, the late night food runs, and still, somehow, be able to make it to class the next day.

I feel I lost more than just a friend, I feel that I lost a brother, but, I take away 29 of the best years of my life.

Rest in Peace, Shane, it is with the fondest of memories, and the heaviest of hearts that i wish you:

"Fair Winds, and Following Seas".

I can still remember the first time I met Shane at school, this tall, skinny dude that was all arms, and legs. Later, after I enlisted in the Navy, we kept in touch through letters (I wish I would've kept them now), we even got jobs at a foundry in Ottumwa together. After he moved to Texas, we would call each other at odd hours, making each other laugh for hours on end. How, in school, he would stop by my house unannounced, walk up to my mother, give her a big hug, and proceed to ask, "Hi, Mom, what's for dinner"? And the times we loaded into this beat up white Mercury I owned at the time, and take off for days at a time, without a care in the world. He always seemed to make me laugh, even when I thought I had lost all reason to laugh. Last, but certianly not least, those massive size 15 battleships he had attached to his ankles. My family used to rib him, and bust his chops about the size of his feet, even giving him the nicknames of Sasquatch, and Bigfoot. He took it all in his typical fashion, smiling, and laughing about it. I'm going to miss him badly. Rest easy, my brother, I'll never forget you.

Shane your leaving is the hardest thing I've dealt with. I'll miss your smile, your laugh, and the stupid shit we talked about at 3 AM. I don't have any insomnia buddies left, it's just me at those crazy times now. You're my big brother and I love you hun. I'll never forget our fun we always had when we did get together, or on video chat, whatever we did it was special. I'll carry on, you fly high my brother.
