Darlene and Family

I would see Shane lots of times at Waste Management. He always took the time to talk to me and I appreciated his presence and friendly demeanour.
I would never see Shane on the main street, and I mean never, without you Darlene…..like two peas in a pod.
You had a wonderful marriage and relationship together and Shane was an honest, hard working man that truly loved his wife and family.
In my books that’s all a Canadian truly can be, and Shane achieved that with outstanding grades.
I will miss him.
