On March 30, 2015 we said goodbye to Shane. This day is never easy for us. Never is, and never will be. Since Shane passed, March has been a tough month for us, but we move forward. His life put life into perspective. You truly realize what’s important. We are so thankful he was apart of our lives. He brought us so much joy over the 19 months he was with us…always smiling, even in the worst of times. We just hope we make him proud.
This year everyone was home and the kids decided they wanted to spend the day at Adventure Aquarium, who have been loyal supporters of Shane’s Future Days‘ COL event. They thought Shane would like to see the sharks, since his nickname in utero was “razor mouth” based off of a fictional shark.
It was a great day together. Shane would have enjoyed the shark tunnel, we all agreed on that.
We celebrated the Easter holiday traveling between families. It’s exhausting, but good to keep busy during this overwhelming time of year. Easter was the first holiday we celebrated without Shane which always makes it difficult.
Three years have passed, but we can still look back on those days, and it still feels like yesterday. Cancer took him from us, but it can’t take away our memories.
“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
