â??You gave me … my best daysâ??

Dear Editor,

Shane was an amazing guy and an extraordinary friend. If he cared about you, which was almost everybody, you knew you meant something to him. He went out of his way to help people even when he wouldn’t/didn’t benefit from it. To be honest, Shane cared more about others then he did himself. He worked very hard at everything he did and for everything he had; that made him very proud. He had major plans for the future and I watched as he worked, day and night, to make sure that his dreams came true.

I could go on and on about how great Shane was, how hard he worked, how much be cared, but there aren’t enough words in the world that would stop me from sounding redundant. So I’m going to say this….

Laying Shane to rest has got to be the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. He was more than a best friend to me and I will never forget or stop loving him. He was there any and every time I needed him, even if it was just to sit next to me because I didn’t want to be alone. Shane gave me three years of memories that I will never forget. I appreciate everything about him and everything he stood for. Ultimately spending time with him made me a better person and I am truly grateful. Tuesday we agreed that we were starting a new chapter in life together but I never thought it would be this way. I’m not liking it at all but maybe there is a surprise ending…

To Shane: My giant, you will forever be missed and I appreciate everything you’ve ever done for me. You asked if I regretted anything and honestly I don’t. You gave me some of my best days at GV and in life itself. I love you and I will never forget you.

Forever yours,
