I was so saddened to hear about Shane. He lived across the street from me on Second Avenue in South Charleston
several years ago. I just loved him to pieces. He was so crazy about his little girls. He was always trying to keep his
car running and his granddad would come down and help him get it going. They also would take him out to eat.
He was a joy to know and I always talked about him at work. He will surely be missed by all that knew him.
May his memory be eternal.
