  1. There not a day that goes by that I don’t think of you babe. You were the love of my life. You brought me so much happiness and love. You showed me that life was worth it. I was in a very dark place before I met you and then you came into my life and brought me peace and joy. I’ve never been with anyone else like you with disabilities. You showed me that anybody with disabilities deserved to be loved as well. I am forever grateful we got to spend that short period together as a family. The girls love you so much and they miss you dearly. They are always asking for you and asking questions. Sometimes I don’t know how to answer there questions. All I can say is you were really sick and they needed an Angel and you needed to be with Buddy. Every night before we all go to bed we go outside and look at the moon and think you are on the moon looking down on us with Buddy. We love you very very much my love. We miss you We will see you someday.

  2. Shane, it breaks our heart that you are no longer here. Thank you so much for how you loved upon my Kellyn, Jay-Lyn and Jac-Lyn. You truly were a star to them and a source of strength and encouragement. Thank you for cheering them on everyday. We are so glad we got to meet you and hang out with you before going overseas. Thank you for coming to see us off at the airport. We’re so sorry we cannot be there to celebrate your life. Our deepest thoughts and prayers are with Kellyn, the girls, your parents and brother. May you rest in peace, love and joy.

    Saila and Johnny Cowles, Kompong Speu, Cambodia
