Son, you and Jesus please look down on us and wrap us with your love and grace. There is so much going on now that we know you would not approve of.

Christmas will never be the same. Christmas in heaven has to be beautiful.
We know that you would not want to come back to this earth. We will always know that one day we will be together again.
We sure miss you son.

Thinking of you today! It seems like an eternity since you were taken from us.

We little knew that morning that
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
You did not go alone;
for part of us went with you,
the day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories,
your love is still our guide;
and though we cannot see you,
you are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same;
but as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.

Son our hearts are so heavy as we come to another anniversary of your death. May 15, 2004 changed our life forever. Our home has never been the same. By the grace of an almighty loving God who promised us he would never leave or forsake us, and prayers from faithful friends and family, we have survived. We have to thank God daily for helping us, without Him, we would be lost.

Hey brother,
Not a day goes by that I don’t think of you and the fun we had. There are days I wish you were here because you understood how things were. I still think of the phone call the night just to check in with you to see how it was going, I was so glad that we both had found jobs and was looking forward to hanging out on a day off.
Until we see each other again bro, please keep watch over us while we keep the watch down here. Love ya bro.

Shane, as we approach another Police Officers Memorial Day it brings a lot of sadness to your dad and I. You were taken from us on this day May 15th 2004. Sixteen years seems like a long time to some people but, to your dad and I it is not that long ago. The death of a child lingers in you mind and heart with so much pain. You go from day to day just trying to survive. Life is so hard without you. All we have now is precious memories, I am thankful that they can never be taken from us.
Due to the COVID-19 we could not go to Washington D.C. this year. All of our friends that have been with us and stood by us since you were taken will be joining us for a candle light service in honor of you. We have been so blessed to have them with us through our difficult times. We cannot put into words how much that mean to us. We love them dearly!! So as we try to manage our emotions and feeling on this day, will you please watch over us. LIFE IS SO HARD WITHOUT YOU!!!!! I know if it was not for the presence of GOD taking care of us we could have NEVER made it this far.
Until we meet in heaven know that we MISS YOU SO MUCH. Life will NEVER be the same.

Our Dear Shane, we cannot begin to put into words how much we miss you. There is not a day that goes buy that we don't think of you. Our hearts still ache with pain. There is really no way that we can explain the feelings we have as parents who have lost there only child. Sometimes we feel like we can't make it through another day. We will have to say that it is only by the grace of a almighty God that has brought us this far.
Tomorrow April 30th you would be 43 years young. We will always remember all of those wonderful birthdays we had with you. As always your dad and I will spend your special day together reminiscing all of our precious memories of you.
We love you dearly!!!

Memories bring tears, but I would not trade one memory for all the tears I've shed. Looking out the 4th floor window at work at the flag hanging across the road in honor of Kevin, breaks my heart. You should be here. He should be here. Senseless tragedies that have rocked our community and shattered hearts of friends and family. Both deaths so uncalled for. I miss you...always...

If only you could be here just one more day to see everyone. If only I could hear 2137 key up the radio one more time . I went to the college the other day and thought of you even more once I seen the BLET class standing around. Your little cousin is even in blet now and he reminds me of you so much it’s scary.. Rest easy 408 and remember there are a lot of people down here than still love you very much.

Sending birthday wishes to Heaven...


May 1, 2019

Shane, your Dad and I will be spending your birthday together remembering this day, April 30th as one of the best days of our life. God gave us you, a perfect little blonde hair, blue eyed little bundle of joy. You brought so much happiness and joy to us. We know that you would not want to come back, but oh what we would give just to hold you again and tell you how much we love you. One day we will leave this earthly home and meet you in our Heavenly Home. So until that time comes, HAPPY BIRTHDAY IN HEAVEN SON!!!!!!!!!

Shane we have had a tough time in Columbus County. As you already know we lost a very special friend and Highway Patrolmen Kevin Connor. Such a sencless, uncalled for tragedy. I truly wish I had the power to give the correct justice to the ones who took his life. It has made me sick to my stomach. I hate knowing that we have, (well I can't use the words that go through my mind) kind of infidels up and down our highways. God knows I have had to pray so hard for God to control my thoughts.
You and Kevin enjoy patrolling heaven together. We miss you more than words can say.
Until we meet again
Love You SON!!!!

Shane, losing you has been the loneliest most desolate journey we have ever taken. The anniversary date May 15, 2004 brings back deeply emotional memories and painful feelings. The days leading up to this day feels like impending doom and like it's hard to breath. We will always have a desire to live in a way that honors you and the time you had with us. We will always be proud of you and what you stood for. Know that we miss you and will one day be reunited with you forever!!!

A dear friend

Hugs and Love to you in Heaven. I am thinking and missing you. Happy Belated Birthday. You are one of my Hero's, too. I know you live with me in Spirit. I have been home to see your parents but always miss them. This May made 20 years you saved me. I know I must have been comfortable and Not so scared but it was you. Us growing up in school and then seeing each other on the Housend Farm. I miss the Galleon. I miss my Dance Partner. I have seen the photo of the wreck site and now almost 20 years later having more memories come back. I was thankful Lewis there with you to save me and it gives me some Peace of Mind he was there with you. May 21, 1998. Thank you for Saving My Life.
