I hope the days, weeks, and months ahead are made somewhat easier knowing that Jehovah God, who cannot lie, promises us that by means of Christ Jesus our loved ones will be resurrected to life on a paradise earth, where "death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore." (Revelation 21:4) At that future time I hope that alongside Shane all of you together enjoy lives bursting with happiness and joy!

Sincerely,in thoughts and prayer, - Angela Montoya & Chris Sandoval6/25/2013 - Shane was my son-in-law and married to my daughter Jody for 20 years. I loved him and always looked forward to my yearly vacation trips to Los Alamos to see Jody, Shane and Tyler and Kalyn. We went on many trips together and had a lot of fun over the years. I was even allowed to drive his red Dodge pick up when I was visiting! I will miss Shane very much. My heart is broken for all the family members and especially for my grandkids Tyler and Kalyn who no longer have their dad. Love, Joyce - Joyce L Cerutti6/25/2013 - I met Shane when we was stationed at Fort Riley. We had both gotten stationed there around the same time. Soon after my wife and kids got to Kansas Shane and Stephanie would occasionally come over for dinner. My oldest daughter would sit on Shane's lap and trace his tattoos with her finger, totally enthralled with it. Shane was always a joy to be around, I will miss you my friend. You family is in my thoughts. - Kenneth Gottschlich6/25/2013 - My husband and I had Shane and Stephanie over a few times to our home in Fort Riley. Gemma our oldest daughter loved Shane. She'd just sit in his lap with no reason at all but to be with him. He was one of the most intelligent guys I have spoken with. He always had this way about him that lit up an area like fire. When my husband called me to tell me of his passing my heart broke. For his children and for his wife. The world lost such an amazing person. He was such a gentle and caring person. He was just happy to be with the woman he loved and his kids smiles. That love between them is very inspirational and I know it will be carried on between them. Shane, I love you very much. Stephanie and family I love you and I think of you every day. - Stevie M. Gottschlich6/24/2013 - I worked with Shane when he was working as a Security Officer for the Pueblo of Pojoaque. This was when he live in Los Alamos and before he became a Police Officer and Air Marshal. When I last saw Shane he told me that he was going back into the military. I haven't heard from or about him since, but I remember Shane as a hard working guy, dedicated to the job, who was fun to be around. I am very sorry to hear about his passing at such an early age. I know he will be missed by everyone who knew him. My deepest sympathy to his family and friends. - Harry Howard6/21/2013 - Shane was a wonderful man to be around. Our children loved seeing him and his wife. He will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family in this time of need and Shane will never be forgotten.
