Mel, Todd, Derrick & Kara. We are so sad to hear of Shanes passing. The struggles of this life are no longer a burden for him and we pray that God wraps his loving arms around you & gives you all the peace and comfort your heart needs. We havent seen him in a few years, but the years prior....he was a HUGE part of our lives. Ill never forget how much help he was to me when Tay had all her hip trouble & surgeries, he was a blessing to me during all that. He was a kind heart with a contagious laugh. Love you all & will continue to lift you up in prayer.

Velte Family, Shane was such a special part of our family and we are absolutely heartbroken to hear this and to even imagine what you all are going through right now. Please know that we will be praying for you all, through the days ahead. He was such a sweet, kind soul, and it's hard to imagine life without him here. But I know that he will be watching over you all and those babies. So very sorry...
