    Shane was a kind hearted guy. I met him when he was about 14 years old while riding ATV’S. He would come to my house to ride, and if I was working, he would dive in and help so I could finish sooner and go riding. One day he came to ride and it was pouring rain. So rather than go muddy up the Crooked Run creek, we made a small ATV track in my yard for my young sons. However, Shane and I spent the rest of the day riding the kids small atvs on the newly built track like 2 gorillas on big wheels. We had an absolute blast and we both commented that this spontaneous action was more fun than most of our previous rides. I’ll never forget that day. Later on we did business together and Shane always did his best to fulfill his agreements. I mourn with you.
