I do have to say alot of the guys we were over there with is on my mind alot. Not just on memorial Day but everyday its one thing to honor our nations veterans 1 or 2 days year around. I think they should be honored everyday. Buddy all of you are missed and no one has forgotten the price that you guys have paid for others. Just wanted to stop in and leave a line or two.

OOrah Brother! RIP Shayne Gone but your never forgotten! Cpl Billy E Bales
Thank you for all that you gave to this country, today is your day.
Merry Christmas! God Bless.
I honestly can't begin to believe that it's been 8 years without you but I'm proud of you for being brave enough to make the ultimate sacrifice to defend your country. Not a day goes by that I don't miss you terribly. I love you more then words can describe. You were the best cousin anyone could ever have or want!!! Every thanksgiving I miss seeing your too tall goofball butt walk in my front door and automatically when you saw me you would get on your knees and sit back on your heels just to be eye level with me just to give me a hug. I miss those hugs :( Every time you did that you made me feel so special. I wish everyday before I go to sleep that I'll wake the next day and this nightmare will be over and I'll get a call saying that your coming home safe and sound. I honestly didn't think that when I saw you at the party we had for you before you left for Iraq was gonna be the last time I got to see you for the rest of my life. As I sit here writing this I have tears in my eyes....
Love you shay
Love Hail <3"
Franklin Marine LCpl Shayne M Cabino
19, KIA Al Karmah, Iraq 10-06-05
You called the house like you did every week when you came back in. Time was different there, but you knew momma would be in the kitchen and you could always catch us. You always did. Never once did you miss the chance to say, or hear I love you. You were going to clear some roadways. You would call again when you got back in, but you wanted to call now. You talked to me. I could sense the uneasiness in you. You always told momma everything and now I know that you just wanted to protect me from the reality that you may very well die. You mostly wanted to talk to "daddy" Tony, the daddy who has raised you since you were one. He never did share with me that conversation, even before we lost him too. I got the phone back and we talked for a little bit. That was the last phone call you would ever make. The last words I ever heard from you were "I love you mommy. " The last words you heard from me were "I love you Shay, stay safe. " I don't want it to be 8 years. It feels like for the last 8 I have been numb and this haunting finality wants to fill me with its presence. I sit at the cemetery, in my heart knowing that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Yet the little boys body that I held and love lies in the ground before me. I watch the rain drops beating down on the windshield of my truck, pretty much like the tears forever in my heart. Never will I make peace with the loss of you, or daddy for that matter, until the day I get to hold you both once again in my arms. I love you Shay Matt, I love you?
8 years later yet still feels like yesterday... I love you Shayne and can't wait for the day when we will all be together again .. Until then, rest peacefully ?? Love Auntie
Well shayne here it is. Summer has come to pass, 8 years has gone so fast. Thank you for watching over me always I owe you.
Thanks for your service... i know your cousin Collin Walsh him and I are very close when im done with high school im joining the marines you inspired me to...
I have never been on this before i remember the last time i saw you before you left i was with charlene i told you to be careful you just put a grin o your face and said iwill.And since that time charlene has joined you. I miss you both. Thank you for what you gave up at such a young age .Always remembered.Always missed always loved. No fancy words just from my heart.
it just gets harder and harder )= I know its been over 7 years, I made your bridge that honored all, with flags of each branch flying, a Marine bridge for you this time. Its all Marine Flags. Its awe inspiring. I have a great testimony from God. I knew it was time for more than just a plaque at the cemetery. I will have your stone made someday, I just can't process it in my heart. So I thought I would find something so different , so unique, so my boy to place there for now. Riding through town, I saw the eagle and I knew that's what I wanted. I wanted a battlefield cross for you. I found someone who had info on the guy who made it. I wrote to him and asked if he would make one for you. It is one of the most beautiful stories yet to be told. He had asked me about you. Google your name and one wonders how Franklin even fits in, never mind that its your hometown and your a Franklin Marine. Long story short he said yes and it was his gift. He had honored you, he had honored your family. He had every right to know who you are and I sent him truth. He told me that he would let me know when it was done. I was told I was unable to place it at the cemetery due to regulations. Steve Clapp a Board member of Mt Hope and YMCA came to me and told me that the Y wanted to do a memorial for you and if I was willing, use the battlefield cross as its centerpiece. I thought about it. Seeing as Forge Hill is where everyone of you call home, and we all had ties to the Y, me and "daddy" (Tony Cipriano), worked for Gerry and he worked on the first Y and everyone of you kids, Brandi Justin Billy, you and Zach went to Y daycare , Y camp, Y afterschool. (Zach was just Y daycare. He had all you to watch him (= So anyways I said yes. Jesse called me to tell me it was done. Then he proceeded to tell me that it was going to be shown on national Television because Nat Geo asked him if he wanted to do a realty show following him around chainsaw sculpting! (= He is Jesse Green from Nat Geo's American Chainsaw! He is going to unveil it at the Franklin YMCA, Friday, June 14, 2013 at 9:30 am. I have never seen it. There is so much more but I'll have pics for you. I have had this ceremony in my heart for 7 long years. This man has done more than honor you and your family, June 14 this ceremony will give back to you your roots, your hometown, and your immediate family that was so wrongly taken away because of an administrative error and media frenzy. You told me once you were told not to put Christian on your dog tags in case you got caught. I told you Never Shayne Matthew , as long as you live deny the Lord your God. You were sent home to me with Christian on your dog tags. God is faithful no matter what we see, or what we understand. This is his gift. I am proud of you Shay Matt, and I love you, and I miss you, and I wish you were home
Thank you Cpl Billy Bales for remembering my Shyane
Shayne on this memorial day you have crossed my mind a lot. Its crazy to think all that has happen and marines and friends we have lost. It don't seem real that in Jan 05 we were just fresh recruits out of boot camp down at parris island and then all of us that were grunts went to camp geiger for SOI i remember all of us talking what iraq would be like what we expected but truth is we didn't have a clue at the time of what might happen i was in a different bn as you and didn't get word of your death until i came back from patrol one night and seen iraq fallen in the marine corps times and it blew my mind. rest in peace brother you will not be forgotten and your sacrifice is known my many. Until we meet again semper fi.
i know your cousin Collin Walsh semper fi marine im joining when im 18 you made the ultimate sacrafice thank you....
Your brother's went to a ceremony at Camp Lejeune for 2/2 this weekend. You have always Been and will always be an intricate part of our family woven in to the very fabric of our lives from the very moment I knew you were here . You are always remembered Shayne Matthew, you are always loved.
Shayne, I can only hope that one day I can have the courage and heart you had. Watch over me please.
Merry Christmas, hope its a good one.
We will never forget the ultimate sacrifice that you did for us...never. Thank you. xo
missing you sweet boy of mine, always. I hope that you and daddy are together laughing , loving , smiling and knowing the secrets of the Universe where time has no value. Where Papa Cip and Uncle Bubba have become part of your lives along with all the others that have gone before you both. The Word of God says that 1000 years is like one day to God. In eternitys equivalent you and daddy have been gone but seconds, not even able to miss us yet. In this world it feels like lifetimes......
Learning about the life and legacy of Shayne Cabino. Our family will forever be grateful for his military service and selflessness in willing to sacrifice for our freedom and safey.
Happy Birthday Shayne Matthew I love you, I miss you, I wish you were home<3
Happy birthday man, enjoy your day!
So, I'm sitting here at 29 Palms, CA, and I can't help but think, damn Shayne was here at one point training before he left. I tell all my buddies about you and the picture of you sitting on the rock. So we've decided we're gonna attempt to find the rock (which is going to be hard considering we're in the middle of the desert and mountains.). I just wanted to say Semper Fi and I love you.
6 years ago today we buried you on your little brothers 9th birthday )=
we miss you like crazy everyday
To the family and friends of Lance Cpl. Shayne M. Cabino:
Please accept my remembrance of Shayne on the anniversary of his passing and know that he will never be forgotten.
Six years today and it feels like yesterday.. You will always hold a special place in my heart. I love you Shayne Matthew
You have touched so many in life, your spirit engraved everywhere you went, from your hometown in Franklin,growing up in Franklin schools, Franklin High ,Tri County in Franklin, and then yes even for your senior year in Canton High. I will never forget your smile the day you graduated, I told you, you could do it and I would have sent you where ever it took to see you succeed, and I did. Returning home after graduating from Canton High you were so proud. I look back now, even with all the inaccuracies on where your from and the cost to your family, Daddy (Tony), Brandi, Justin, Billy, and Zach, I would do it all the same again, because never baby ever would I take that smile of acheivement from you. Nobody loves you more than your momma cept God. I miss you Shay Matt, I really really miss you.
Im not sure why but Iv been thinking about you a lot man. At high school there is a big portrait of you on the wall, and I always take a moment and look at it every time I pass it.
Shaynie, I came to write in your book, it has been a long time. As I sit here contemplating what to write I find so much sorrow in my heart for all our losses. Uncle, that beautiful blond haired little boy,your Dad who taught you your values and the list can go on and on. I found the letter that you wrote me on thanksgiving 2005 telling me how when you came home you wanted me to make you a big batch of chow mein cuz there was nothing better than coming to my house for Nana's cooking. Shayne Matthew there will always be a void in my heart for you. The older we get the more we see.Having grandchildren is the greatest gift that God can give a parent. I will always love and miss you. Nana..
Since the last post, March, April, May, June, there is no sense of time and yet it screams every second that youre not here. Mommy loves you.
I didnt miss it, I remember the day as if it were yesterday. Each second that passes reminds me that youre not here right now and it just screams you have been gone just a little bit longer. I refuse to see, I refuse to process...but in my heart, at your grave, and now your page, Happy Birthday Dear Little Boy of Mine, Happy Birthday<3 February 15, 1986<3
not a minute goes by Shaynie boy , not a minute. Merry Christmas, Momma loves you!
Thinking of you today, thought I would stop in and tell you that I miss you and wish you a Merry Christmas.
pickles pickles pickles, so many leftover pickles )=
I love you , I miss you ,I wish you were home<3
On this Thanksgiving Shayne know how much we love and miss you always
seconds equal minutes, minutes eqaul hours, hours equal days, days equal weeks, weeks equal months , months equal years, every second felt as if it were the first, love you mommas boy, miss you like crazy )=

I LOVE AND MISS YOU FOREVER SHAYNE...
My almost Valentine baby. Yesterday 2/15 you were 24. I would have never thought that when you were 24 I would have lost you and 3 years later your dad *Tony. I have your sister Brandi,and your brothers Justin Billy & Zach, and for that grace I am grateful. Life without you and dad will never ever be the same. It feels so wrong, so incomplete. Our family circle has been tampered with but your presence and dads will always remain. I love and miss you both so much. and I didnt forget....Happy Birthday Dear Little Boy Of Mine.
Love and miss you!
Time and Tide is endless,like my love for you.Tears are shed and time is lost. I love and miss you baby boy...

Shayne, I sit here in the quiet, I am there.The feelings are raw. I can see Billy and Melissa standing in the yard hugging each other and the response to my question.The pain is acute as it was that day. I miss you sweet boy.
Four years ago today and seems like only yesterday. I miss and love you bunches and wish you were here.
I just wanted to let the Cabino family know that Shayne nor any other servicemen/woman who have lost their lives will not be forgotten. Shayne was a great person. We only knew each other for a few years but I am glad to have shared time with such a courageous, kind, and all around great person. Maybe I'll try and teach you how to drive a standard when I see you again. I sure am glad to have that memory of you. Thinking of makes me laugh every time.
Shayne Matthew , There is so much I could write, but I believe you know my heart. I love you Nana...
So I'm sittng in my dorm room just thinking about everything and where I want to go with my life and suddenly you cross my mind. I couldnt help but laugh. All i could picture was you thinking you were big and bad and could ride a horse..and then you get bucked off. I love you shay & i miss you so much. I'll see your beautiful face some day<3

Hi Baby Boy, Someone once told me that time heals all wounds. They are wrong, it has been three years since you went home with Jesus and twenty two years since Uncle Bubba went home and I feel as broken now as I did then. You put on a plastic face and go through the motions but you are never ever the same again. I love you sweet boy. Kiss an Angel for me . I love you
Shayne, today is my birthday and I feel so bad that I am here and you are not...I love you my grandson...I would gladly change places with you so that you could have your family that you promised your momma...miss you sweet boy...Love you
Hey Kiddo! Just dropping in to say I miss you very much and you will always be on my mind! Love you
Holding you all in my thoughts and prayers.
The Wind on The Downs
“I like to think of you as brown and tall,
As strong and living as you used to be,
In khaki tunic, Sam Brown belt and all,
And standing there and laughing down at me.
Because they tell me, dear, that you are dead,
Because I can no longer see your face,
You have not died, it is not true, instead
You seek adventure in some other place.
That you are round about me, I believe;
I hear you laughing as you used to do,
Yet loving all the things I think of you;
And knowing you are happy, should I grieve?
You follow and are watchful where I go.”
(Written by Marian Allen during World War l )
Two lines that I wish you to keep near your heart…….
“You seek adventure in some other place.
That you are round about me, I believe”
I did not know Shayne, but I am remembering
his service. He is my hero. !

The Other Side
i'm over on the other side
where life and death softly divide.
left my skin and bones behind
now i'm over on the other side.
can you feel me there with you?
my breath is gone but i'm not through.
loved you then and i still do
from over on the other side.
i can fly. really fly.
below the earth ... all through the sky.
tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side.
it's good here on the other side.
the sweetest songs...the bluest skies.
thank you for the tears you cried
but it's good here on the other side.
i can fly. really fly. below the earth...all through the sky.
tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side
the world is smaller than a needle's eye.
where life and death softly divide.
when you leave your skin and bones behind
i'll be waiting on the other side.
i can fly. really fly. below the earth ... all through the sky.
go tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side.

Dear Little Boy Of Mine:
Today is Easter Sunday, signifying the day Jesus Christ rose from the dead. The gift of Christ open to all, chosen by some. What hope lies in Christ because of this day.
I taught you who Christ Was, Is and Always will be.
Before you left for Iraq you said to me "Mom, "xxxx" told me not to put Christian on my dog tags in case I was caught. "xxxx" said I would be tortured for it. I looked you in the eyes and I said " Shayne Matthew, I am going to tell you this once and only once. Do not ever deny the Lord Your God, for it is He and only He that will be there for you in times of trouble." When the Marines sent you home to me, the Captain put a small velvet pouch in my hands. Alone with you , I opened that pouch. Inside were the dog tags you were wearing that day. They say:
SM O POS
XXX XX XXXX
You have so blessed me, my son. In the deepest of my dark nights you have filled my heart with light and hope. You made the choice to choose Christ at any cost on your own. I know in the deep of my soul that you are with Him. Each and every second is a second that brings me closer to the day when once again I can hold you, and kiss your beautiful face. I miss you Shay, I miss you so much. I love you. Love always Your Momma
Shaynie, It is Easter Sunday, I miss you so much...I'll love you forever I'll love you for always...
It's Easter Sunday & still missing you!!
God Bless You & your family!!!
HAPPY EASTER SHAYNE...MISS YOU LIKE CRAZY AND LOVE YOU MUCH!
Shayne, it is Palm Sunday and my thoughts run to you and all who served and all who have fallen. We salute you! "God Bless...I love you for always I love you forever....
What I wouldn't give for just a few moments... a few seconds to tell you again how much you were loved!!
I know that you are in a better place, I just wish that it didn't hurt so much. You have left such a void in so many. I'm sure you're not surprised. Only sorry we can't sit together and celebrate your incredible life.
I will love you forever.
Love You Baby!!!
Thinking of you today.
Thinking of you always!!
Love you Baby Boy!
Just another day of missing you!!!
Love you always & forever
Miss You always!!
Forever in my heart & soul!!
God Bless You & all who are serving!!!!
Love You Always!!!

You are missed more today than yesterday but far less than tomorrow. Always!!!
Hey Shayne!Its almost two years that you past away in one week it will be two years!!!This is the most fastest two years ever!I wish i could have met you one more time before you went to heaven.May God bless your soul and everyone else who sacraficed their lives for our country! Love Ya big cuz
Shayne Matthew, It is with pride and sorrow that I write to you today. Pride because of who you are and what you gave for your country. You had no quams about going to Iraq, it was something you neeeded and wanted to do. It was an honorable thing to do.... Sorrow becaus we all miss and love you so much. What I would give to be able to reach up and receive one of your great hugs. To be able to sit in your prescence and listen to stories that you had to tell. Instead we honor you for the life you gave and proudly call you Our Hero....It will be two years next month and yet it seems like yesterday. Just know Shayne I love you for always I love you forever........
It is incrediable ....everytime I make chow mein I feel the need to fix a big plate for you...I miss you sooooooooooooomuch...Love...
There is nothing that I can say or do to take away the pain or bring you peace in your time of sorrow, but I will offer you and your family my heart felt condolences. I also offer you my prayers that in time the pain will easy and the memories of your HERO will carry you through each day and night. I want to thank your HERO, for his/her selfless act of becoming a member of the armed forces, his/her willingness to defend the United States of America, all that we hold sacred and for the sacrifice that will forever be etched in the memories of all those who knew him/her. Though tears can never bring him/her back, we hope that our tears express our gratitude for the sacrifice that he/she made and our sorrow at his/her passing. I believe for every fallen HERO there is a star shining brightly up above to remind us of the precious gift we were given.
Your mission on earth is complete and you are now a member of GOD’s Heavenly armed forces. Stand down brave warrior and take your rightful place in Heaven with all the HEROES who have passed before.
I made a special promise to LE RON A. WILSON, a dear family friend who joined the Army with three other friends, one of whom is my son (Le Ron was killed in action on 07/06/07 at the age of 18) on the day he was laid to rest as I touched his coffin, that I would never forget him nor would I forget those that gave their lives for our country before him, with him and after him and so when I came across www.legacy.com, I thought what a great way to keep my promise to Le Ron, so I will continue to leave tributes in each guest book until the day there is no longer the need to leave these tributes to a FALLEN HERO.
REST IN PEACE, HERO, YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!!

Hello my love<3 ,,
I miss you so much its sickening. Wish you were here or I was there
its been a year and 10 months. Who would ever think that day by day it would just seem like im living the same day over and over again. Hoping its all just a bad dream and you will knock on the door and be home. Show Auntie Charlean the roaps up there....
"dun dun dun....... " Brandi Billy Zach and I all have a song for us! Love you lil brother.
Cabino, whats up man? its almost 2 years but its been almost 3 since we went to parris island. i still look at the pictures and laugh because i know you are up to no good. remember the time right before we left you busted into my hotel room and beat my butt in front of my sister? well she does. and so do I. for now take care. love you and forever brothers.
I miss you Shayne Matthew....
Love you much,
Unfortunately, I didn't have a chance to meet Shayne but have heard a lot about him through his sister. I'm so sorry for your loss and my condolences go to his family.
Shayne, I really don't need to tell you but uncle and jenn had their baby on 7/7/07/ His name is Matthew Todd Michael after you and uncle bubba. He is beautiful and so perfect... Mark and Jenn will teach him about you and Todd and he will know what a brave and honorable man you are and what a special person you and Todd are to each and everyone or us. We will miss and love you forever....nana
i randomly thought of you tonite...?i was walking my dog on the beach and i thought of you-then i came here and figured i would write, i dont kno if u ever knew this but your an absolutely amazing person and to this day people still talk about u , you will honestly never be forgotten , exspecailly ur gorgeous smile, i just wish i knew what i know now and i wish i knew you better
This entry has been something i didnt want to do, but I feel i need to write it.....
Its been a while since i wrote on here. To find the words to write about my lil brother just gets harder and harder as the days go by. I cant say only if, or what if... Because i know your here with me every moment of every day, not looking over me, watching me, but walking beside me, one step ahead of me just to make sure im going to be ok. My life has been an up and down roller coaster. Yet i still stand tall not letting others see what is really behind the "mask", Yet there is one person that knows whats truly in my heart... Mom, As much as I hate to admit it. Im more like her now then i have ever imagined. So fearless, so much love, so strong for everyone but myself when it involves you. Putting myself last and making sure everyone else is ok.
It feels like yesterday when i was at uncle butchies house when mom was on the phone asking me to come home that day, when i found out and got home and i ran towards Billy and we just grabbed eachother so tight and didnt say anything but i love you.
I sit here barely able to see through the tears and just wish I could turn the hands of time back to Forge Hill where Brandi told us to get out of her room cause she was on the phone. Where you billy and i played in the sand under the deck with the trucks. Mom telling us to come inside cause its time to eat chow mein, and you getting excited and me being mad cause it wasnt lil chickens.
Never have i been so proud. Not just to say i am your brother, but to have been a part of your every day life. The memories burned into my mind are, what i consider, the most cherished things i have from you, and i wouldn't trade them for the world.
My love for you travels deeper then the deepest sea, further then the furthest star.
Love your big brother....
I love you for always...I love you forever... Shaynie....
Shayne... its been a while since ive wrote to you on this. its hard reading this stuff becuase it makes it a reality... as you i graduated.. and i followed your footsteps in doing so!! i really wish you could have been there with me on the day thats supose to be the happyiest day of my life... shayne i miss you so much!!!! i love and miss you so much
your always your baby sisters #1 hero always and forever!
Been thinkin about you so much lately. Love you baby boy..
Dear Melissa my name is Mike and I live in Canton.I read your article in today's Canton Citizen and have read some of things that you have written about your brother on this site.I just wanted to say that I also share the worst thing in common with you and Brittany my brother died on November 18,1994 he was 27 he had an accident at his work and fell.He loved the Red Sox and the Patriots.He would have loved to have seen the Red Sox win the World Series I cried when they did win it in 2004 because I wished that he was here to see it happen and share in the joy of watching them win it all.I love the Red Sox and Patriots.In fact I have season tickets to the Pats.I have had them for about 10 years now.Watching sports and my family keep me going.I have a niece who is a freshman at Canton High.I also have two nephews one in junior high and the other at the Kennedy.I hope you will email at MJWOL29@Verizon.net.Your brother and my brother were both heroes.
Loved and Missed...Sweet Baby Boy
Today was the D.A.R.E. graduation!It was alot of fun.I got first place on my 200 word essay, and got a HUGE lion.I thought of you as soon as i got the t-shirt because it was army...I looked up and thought to myself that I did a great job all year.School ends on June 15(and then i'll be in 6th grade) and i cant wait because as soon as baseball's over im going to Maine to Auntie Beanie and Uncle Paul's house!!!!!Im going to have alot of fun.But have fun up there.LUV YA!!!!!!!!:)
I love and miss you baby boy!
There was a memorial day tribute to our soldiers. We had to tell what we loved best in 300 words or less. I worked on it for about a month. Not because I couldnt figure out what we love best, but because it is impossible to get beyond the loss of losing you. Each word is dragged out from within and carefully placed. I finished Thursday and didnt have the heart to submit it because it is so hard...Only before this Memorial day ends it should be in print. So here it is , to you my Son with love.
What we love best, where do we begin. The very moment I knew that you existed and my heart was filled with joy. The day I brought you home from the hospital to your sister Brandi, and your brothers Justin and Billy. How we love you so. I can still see Justin at 2 bringing me his new baby. Or what about the year that Tony rented the limo when you were all so little. We rode around just watching Frosty the Snowman. The little Marine suit that I bought you when you were one. I have a picture. Who would believe that the patch is 2nd Marines 2nd Division, the very division and branch you were in 18 years later. Summers spent swimming at Nannies with Auntie Heidi, Auntie Holli, Uncle Markie and all the kids. Being the only one that got to go in Uncles room. You were such a beautiful baby, who could resist you. Perhaps bringing your little brother Zachary home from the hospital when you were 10. How you negotiated to keep your title “the Baby.“ I promised you that you could and I kept my word. You are forever and you will always be “the Baby” of the first batch. I allowed you to go to Canton in September to graduate your senior year, where you turned 18 in February of 04. Still in school, not even a month later, you signed up for the Marines. After graduating in May, YAH YOU, I always knew you would, I always knew you could, you came back home that night. One day we were discussing the choices that you made in your fathers house. You looked me square in the eyes and you said, “I’m sorry Momma, but I gave my word, and now I am going to stick by it.” Only you Shayne Matthew would pick that moment in time to become everything that I raised you to be. A man of his word. You always wanted everyone to go watch you ride your dirt bike. It made me crazy to watch you ride that thing. So fearless, So courageous. Words that have been used by friends who served with you. One soldier told me, “I was scared to death out there. When we went out, I always got behind Cabino. He was fearless, courageous and crazy.” He made me smile. That would be my Shayne, invincible. I treasure my phone calls from Iraq, always once and sometimes 2 and 3 times a week. You always called me at suppertime because you didn’t want to wake me up. Every week without fail. I never missed one call or the chance to tell you how much I love you. In the beginning your phone calls were very detailed and informative. You have always told me everything. I sensed an acceptance in you that you had to be where you were, and that you really had accepted the fact that you may very well die. The war had done to you, my sweet boy, what it takes most a lifetime to learn, and in two and a half months you were all grown up. We ended our phone call that day with lots of I love you’s. It was the very last phone call you made before you went out again. It was the very last phone call you would ever make. Ask what we love most and I can tell you. We love the fact that you are an intricate part of our family, woven into the very fabric of our lives, in your own special design that radiates you everywhere in our lives. You are irreplaceable, irreversible and so deeply embedded into our hearts and souls that you are continously with us and always loved and missed each and every second that time holds. We love you Shayne Matthew! Always, Brandi, Justin, Billy, Zachary, Auntie Heidi, Amanda, Adam, Hailey, Auntie Holli, Mark, Aimee, Jayden, Ashley, Joey, Uncle Markie, Jenn, Matthew, Nannie, Tony and Mommy.
Shayne Matthew, Memorial Day is this weekend and with it brings sweet memories of all the other memorial days we all spent together. Your Mom, Tony, Brandi, Justin,Billy, Auntie Heidi, Amanda,
Adam, Hailey, Auntie Holli,Aimee'
Ashley, Joey, Auntie Charlene as well as all her kids. The cook outs and all the time you kids spent goofing around...memories are a blessing and we surely were blessed when your mom brought you into the world. Then came your little brother Zachary another blessing.....I just thank God that we have all these memories that surround us of you and your brothers and sister...Well sweet boy just know that there is never a moment when you are not in our thoughts..I Love and Miss you Forever...Nana
Shayne, Life goes on,but time stands still....I Love You..
This letter has been a long time coming. The inability to find words to express my sorrow at the loss of you is overwhelming. To attempt to put it into words is a daunting task, for what words are there to adequately capture the joy being your "Auntie" brought to my life. I have a lifetime of the most wonderful memories of watching you grow from that beautiful blonde-haired blue-eyed boy to the young man who was so proud of being a marine.
Memories of holiday dinners at my house when you would head for the refrigerator searching for your jar of pickles, know that we needed a jar just for you. Memories of You, Brandi, Justin, Billy, Zachary, Amanda, Adam, Hailey, Aimee, Ashley, and Joey. All the little rugrats together causing a rucus. Playing football in the backyard. Swimming in Nana's pool every summer. Endless days of fun watching you all grow and love each other. Knowing that we were all family and we meant the world to each other.
One of my fondest memories is of a time when I called you. You were at the Patriots game. I told you it was crazy to answer the phone while you were at the game. You said, "Auntie, I only answered because it was you. I will always treasure the relationship we shared. Shayne you always had a way of letting me know how much we meant to each other. I sit here remembering all those times and it brings tears to my eyes. There is such an incredible void Shay, more like a chasm that will never be filled.
Amanda, Adam, Hailey, and I miss you more than words can ever express.
I proudly display my picture of you in your dress uniform. There is nothing that will ever take its place of honor on my wall. I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world.....Well just one thing Shay. I would give anything for just one more day with my sweet nephew. I love you Shayne Matthew as much today as the day you were born and all the yesterdays in between.
It's strange Shayne, in a way it feels to me as if I am saying goodbye to you but I am not-nor will I ever-say goodbye I will simply say I am counting the days until we meet again. Sweet boy, you are in my heart always,
LORD Your throne is founded on two strong pillars
Righteousness and Justice.
Unfailing love and truth walk before you as attendants.
I heard a song yesterday that made me think of you. I cried the whole way to work. Please continue to watch over and protect all of us. We love you and miss you more than words can say.
Shaynie, I love you baby boy and miss you with all my heart. Until the rapture........... <3<3
I know i only saw you if i went to Maine or Uncle Paul took us to Maine, but i still always remember those times when we would set off fire works on the fourth of July or just come up for a vacation.....That was really fun times!! I turned 11 last month and i went rolling skating and almost broke my knee but i have to admit it wa pretty funny:)You probally was looking down at me and was laughing( after you knew i was ok)and the other time when i rode Courtney's horse Montey and he took off down the road i knew you had to be watching me because i only skraped my elbow and started to laugh!!!!!Well I love you Big cuz
Dear Little Boy Of Mine
If it were possible I could love you more each day, but how then could that be so when I have always loved you best from the moment I knew you existed. Giving birth to you, your sister Brandi and your brothers Justin, Billy and Zachary, and holding each of you for the first time in my arms is truly the closest thing there is on earth to knowing what the pure love of Christ is.
Even now you know Christs love in its purest form and the mysteries of the world beyond. Close I hold onto all that I taught you in faith knowing Christ is Risen
Christ will come again
Until then, Dear Little Boy Of Mine
Until then...I love You my Shay Matt
Love Your Momma
Shay, I love you forever,I love you for always. I will miss you forever.
I want to tell you that I never had the priveledge to know Shayne, however, i'm sorry for his death in a way I never thought I would be. I carry him close to my heart in the form of a dog-tag necklace I recieved when I donated money to a fund, in honor of the soldiers in need of money to fly home and things to look forward to. When the soldiers visited my work at Harley-Davidson I never realized how much they would touch me with their stories and when I saw Shayne's picture. A young man whose life had begun in the same year as mine and had ended so soon. So, I guess what I wanted to say was to the parents and friends of Shayne is that he is still touching lives to this day.
Shaynie, As always I Love you for always.I Love you forever...
hey shayne...wats up bro...i miss you buddy and i kno your watching down on everyone making sure there safe. i kno ur kicking me in the rear to make sure i get stuff done..i wish you were here to talk to cause you were always there to listen... i cant wait to see you in the future for another wrestling match...miss ya...just like old times 1love.
Shayne I need you more than anything right now. Things are getting so confusing and stressfull. I just don't know what to do. I know that if you were here you would be telling me everything that I should be doing. I miss you Shayne and can't wait till we meet again <3
Shayne I wish I could talk to you now more than ever... I need you to make me laugh when I feel like screaming/crying/breaking down. Who knew that planning a wedding was so stressful... You always used to put a smile on my face... No matter what... I miss you.
As kids, we lived together, we fought, we laughed, we cried.
We did not always show the love, that we both had inside.
We shared our dreams and plans, and some secrets too.
All the memories we share, is what bonds me now to you.
We grew up to find we have a love, that is very strong today.
Its a love shared by our family, that will never fade away.
You are my brother not by choice, but by nature of our birth.
I could not have chosen a better one, you are the best on earth!
I love you lil brother!
More then words could say,
More then time could keep,
More then sight can be seen,
More then touch can be felt,
Its not moving on,
Its not getting through,
Its not coping with what happened,
Its living each day
Its having you with me,
Living on through me.
The love and time we shared will never be forgot! I love you.
Miss You So Much!!!

A hero is a person noted for feats of courage or nobility of purpose, especially one who has risked or sacrificed his or her life. You are my hero!

DEAR LITTLE BOY OF MINE
Some have loved you all your life
Some have loved you more in death than life
But always you are loved.
Lance Cpl. Cabino,
We never knew each other. But I was walking past your house today with my wife and my little boy, Alex. Your family was preparing to honor your memory, and there were large photos of you: one a portrait in your Marine dress blues and another in your desert battle dress. My son, who is five, asked who you were. I told him that you were a Marine and that you were killed in the War. I asked someone, maybe it was your mother, what your name is and she told me. Shayne, I am thankful for what you have done, and I am sorry for your family's loss and sorrow.
i miss you so much...i cant wait til the day comes that we can be together again..i love you so much..you'll always be in my heart no one could ever take your place..the only thing that keeps me goin is the memory of you...keep watchin over me...i love you
I have never actually met you. Althoug I feel like I know you. I know that you and my brother are up there watching over our families. You have an awesome family..I love them all. I can't wait til I can actually meet you. Just know that we all miss you...and you are loved very much!
CAN'T WAIT FOR THE DAY WHEN WE WILL ALL BE TOGETHER AGAIN...
I LOVE AND MISS YOU SHAYNE MATTHEW
1 year had passed and it still seems like yesterday, love you, i hope i make you proud
Always in my thoughts, my mind and in my heart... I love you more than you will ever know!!!!
Today has been hard knowing that your not with us. I kept on remembering all the great times. I miss seeing your smile. I miss seeing your face. Those are the littel things that i miss the most. There are so much more that i could say, but i want to wait till we see each other again. Thank you for keeping an eye on everyone down here. You are a true HERO and LOVED by so many. May the peace of God keep you strong and healthy.
I can't believe it has been a year without you.
It has been way to long.
I can't wait till we see each other again.
I miss you and Love you So Much <3
RIP Shayne Matthew Cabino 2/15/86-10/6/05
*May God bless you*
Today had to be the hardest day to wake up this morning, knowing that you have been gone for a whole year. It still doesnt seem real, how can such an amazing person be taken from us soo young? Not a day goes by that im not thinking about you and wishing you were still here. You have made such a difference in sooo many peoples lives. Shine on Us and Keep us all safe, until we meet again you will always have a special place in my Heart.
*I would Give anything to Look you in the eyes One Last time and have you look Back...*
Rip Soldier, Miss you <3
I was hopeing that today I could be strong but I just cant do it. The tears wont stop they never stop every time i think of you every time something happends that I know your watchin out for me. It feels like just yesterday I was driving by anges lake house and saw you standing there. I yelled your name and you jumped in the water and swam over to me and gave me a huge hug. It feels like just yesterday i talked you online from Iraq and told you how much i loved you and to be safe. It just still doesnt seem possible. Id do anything to bring you home safe and sound. They say time heals all wounds well this one is something that just isnt getting any easier. I think of you, and how you gave your life for freadom and makes me so proud to have a friend like you. But it hurts so much to think about it. My heart drops to my stomach everytime. You didnt deserve this you are and amazing kid and none of us will ever forget you. You brought a smile to everyones face the second you walked into a room. You are my very first friend. You were there for me since we were in kindergarten. I have so many amazing memories of you that I will never let go of. I just want you to know that it may have been one year since we lost you but but as time goes on I will never forget. There isnt a day that passes that i dont think of you and wish that i could just hear you make some crazy comment that makes me laugh so hard that i start to cry. I love you so much Shayne and always will. Keep watchin over us all. Thank you for being such and amazing friend to me. You are my hero.
Love always Jess

Shaynie, we are once again forced to face reality, for it is one year. I have been faced with this once before and it seems like yesterday and will feel like that twenty years from now. Your voice is not silenced for if you listen in the still of the night with God's help you can bring it all back. Our lips are not silenced because to not speak of you is to have never known you. Some people are afraid to say
Shayne for fear of hurting or bringing up bad memories, but what they fail to understand is not to say Shayne hurts more.I Love You Shayne Matthew more than I ever realized. I will be with you tomorow
as will the rest of the family. You are my forever Hero and I will love you un till I have no breath to love.Untill the Rapture, Sweetie "God Bless"
Well tomorrow is one year and I really can't believe it. It feels like yesterday that our friend called me to tell me you had passed. I couldn't stop the tears then and I can't stop them now. It is like time has been standing still, life has kept going on around me but a part of me just stopped in that moment. The pain is still there and it is still fresh. To me it wasn't a year ago, to me it was yesterday! I know that they say time heals all wounds but I find myself wondering when time will heal this one. You don't get over it you just get used to it, and I know in my heart that you are still here, you are here with everyone you love and you will always be young and you will always be charming and yes you will always be a punk. I will never forget you and there is still a hole in my heart that no matter how much time elapses it will never be filled because it is for you and you alone. I miss you Shayne Matthew you will always be my hero. I love you!
well i guess a year is comming up. ugh, if it has to be then i guess it has to be. People are comming around again for support, which is awesome and taken greatly. But what they seem to miss is the fact that A year is nothing, to us its last week, yesterday, 5 minutes ago. Its something that is a part of us. I love ya shay, and let me tell you You will never be forgoten, not only as my friend and hero. But as my little Brother.

Shayne President Reagan once said "some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference. The Marines don`t have that problem". You truly have made a difference in this world, Semper Fi. To the Cabino family, my thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Shayne, you lived the good life and fought the good fight. As a Marine I`m proud of you for the job you did. Semper Fi Marine. RIP

Hey Shaynie, Just felt the need to say I Love and Miss you more than words can ever speak. Every day is just like yesterday with this big empty wound festering in my heart, nothing has changed. You will be forever "Our Hero"........
I Love you more today then I did yesterday if that is possible.
Shayne Matthew, Well time and tide waits for no man. Another day and time goes on and on. Whether we want to open our eyes or not, we find it to be another day and we go through the motions. Nothing alters the fact that we will always love and miss you and you will be forever "Our Hero". Truthfully I would rather have you back with your infectious smile and your great hugs,God had another plan. "God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God,and God in him".
1 John 4:16 Forever I Love You....

** "It's kinda hard with you not around. Know your in heaven smiling down.. Watching us while we pray for you. Everyday we pray for you. Till the day we meet again. In my heart is where I'll keep you friend. Memories give me the strength I need to proceed.. The strength I need to believe!"**
Shayne, Seven months and yet yesterday...what can one say except this is hell. I miss you so much it is unbearable, you just keep putting one foot in front of the other and walk through the days but in the quiet time it is like you creep up on my lap and say "well nana here I am" and the pain is endless. just know that where ever I am, I carry you in my heart. I love you little boy....your nana....
Hey Shayne. I can't beileve it has been 7 mounth all ready. I miss you so much i can't even explain. I always looked up at you like you were my older brother. Now i have no one here to tell me what is wrong and to teach me how to fight. I miss those days how we would fight to see who was stronger. You helped me and Mel through our troubels. I wake up every morning and look at your picture woundering when we would see each other again. I know your in a safe place right now looking down on everyone helping us get through our times where we need you. I just want to wake up one day and see your face and at least say good-bye. It kills me knowing that i never got a chance to say bye. Shayne i Miss you so much and i can't take this pain anymore. I can't wait till we meet again. Never forget that you are always in my heart and that i will never forget about you. I Miss and Love you Shayne <3.
I miss you so much. I can't believe 7 months since you've been here and really even longer than that since I've seen you. I think it is really kicking in now. I hate it. I miss you, I want you home but I know I'll see you again some day it's just not fair that it seems so far away. I have a piece of my heart that will be missing forever. I love you little boy.
I love and miss you Shayne!! Keep shining My hero!Since Kindgergarten!
Peace is seeing the sunset and knowing who to thank...
hey Shayne, things just dont get any better. Some days are harder than others but it still comes down to the end when the day is done, i know im my heart your really not coming home, well you are home but only in spirt. Im heart aches every time i think this. And it makes me cry and think of all the fun times we had as kids. Christmas afternoons picking you guys up with dad. Then late night movies. To going to my first day of High School with my big brother, never thought id do that in my life. It was cool though knowing you were watching over me and i had eyes everywhere keeping an eye on me in school. i still have that but i know its only you looking down on me in heaven! I miss you shayne, and i cant wait to be with you again in heaven and be together forever! i love and miss you shayne! ALWAYS remember you are your baby sisters #1 hero now and forever!

Hey Shayne, its been 6months since you left this earth and left your family and friends behind. I miss you more and more each day that passes. You seemed to slipped away from your baby sisters figers in a second. There is always a place in your baby sisters heart that only will be filled when we meet again at the gates of heaven where you will be waiting to guide me threw the gates. You have seen so much and yet missed so much! I LOVE AND MISS YOU GREATLY!

"If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again"
Well Shaynie it is after midnight and it has been six months since I looked at Bill and said where is Tony did your mom take him to the hospital? Bill said it's Shayne nana it is Shayne.I stood there in shock and said No Its not Shayne, it is not Shayne and my whole world went tumbling down around me. I remember to this day the last time I spoke to you and said "stay safe Shayne and you said Nana I'll be back don't you worry". I prayed for your saftey as well as for the other thousands of troops over there. I just don't understand, I mean my minds knows but my heart doesn't want it to be this way. I have a wall in the green room that has the Marine flag,American flag and your marine picture, the picture that is on this guest book and pictures of you and your brothers and sister as well as your cousins, uncle Bubba with his rifle when he was in the army and it is called Shayne's wall. We had Bible study last night and I was showing Felix all the pictures and Brother John said where is Felix? I said I was showing him Shayne's wall. Adam and Joe got a kick out of me naming the wall of pictures after you...As always you will remain my Hero and I will love and miss you forever....remember Nan loves you.....

Hey Shayne.. im miss you more and more each day that passes! i always find a song on the radio that reminds me of you. They make my eyes water while i drive and listen to them. i wish you were just here with me watching movies and spending quality time like we use to! Please always watch over me... i know you alway do. seeing your picture everywhere still makes me cry. i still cant believe its almost been 6months you've been gone. it still seems like yesterday you slipped away from your baby sisters arms... i remember the day i never wanted to let you go to tranning thinking you would never come back to me... but that day was relized the day we found out we lost you forever! It still makes me cry thinking about you gone... PLEASE KEEP EVERYONE SAFE! i cant wait to see you again shayne, when we meet in heaven. Always keep showing me ways your with me!!

As always you are my Hero.Rest well in the arms of our Lord and Saviour.Until we are together again
Nan loves you.........
I was looking online and i saw a quote that i thought was good to put in this.Its by Walter Scott and it says,"Death--the last sleep? No, it is the final awakening." Shayne I believe that by you ending your life on earth that it was just the beggining of the friendship and happieness that you now have with GOD. I had a funeral to go to on tuesday... It was Nick Daves brother. They said at the funeral that the questions you have about loosing a loved one god couldnt even make you understand. and they said that a question like if god took you because he had a better plan for you why did he take you from our life when there were so many plans for you down here. And the priest said when these questions come about in your mind that just have the reassurance that the one you lost is now in gods kingdom and you will see him again. Shayne i believe that you are were god wanted you and you are laying in the green pastures and you are with all the love ones we have lost along the way. Shayne you are my hero, you are the giding light on my stormy days i miss and love you kid.
Till we meet again Sweet Dreams Cuz.
"It's kinda hard wit you not around
Know you in Heaven smilin' down
Watching us while we pray for you
Everyday we pray for you
Till the day we meet again
In my heart is where I keep you friend"
Shay, I have thought about you all day today as I always do,the words were there. As I sit looking at your picture of you when you were a little boy with blond hair and your beautiful smile my words are wrapped in silence. I will always love and miss you.You are "Our American Hero"God Bless you and sleep tight in the arms of Our Saviour and someday we all will be with you.
Your nan loves you.........

Today is actually 5 months since you were taken from this earth. The words are still far and few between. No one can Truly understand what its like for me to lose one of MY lil Brothers. the pain and anguish i deal with on a daily basis can not even be put into words. Although i know you are looking over us and you are with us every moment of the day, for me still isnt right, when i think of the times i could just reach out and give ya a "brotherly" tap on the leg. (haha) I miss you lil boy.

Hey buddy i just wanna tell you about some recent things that have been going on... you should see Jayden ( I know you see him already ) but he is getting sooo big. Aimee is such a good mom and dave is a wonderful dad in the making. Oh i know that day will come when he looks up at ur jumbo picture hanging in everyones house that your mom got everyone for christmas and ask who the young man in those pictures. I will tell him that " that is your cousin shayne, and he fought in the marines and he did it so we would be able to lay our heads down at night and not be scared " He is soo cute I love being an Uncle. Hey me and Aimee's twin are doing wonderful A.K.A Kerry its been 10months now... who could have emagined. Everyone wants to be a marine these days. So everytime i hear or see a shirt in my school that has the marines simble on it I think of the Family Hero. Im going for my driving test soon March 1st im so excited. be my wings shayne and gide me on that road test. Another thing is i did something last week i never thought that iw ould do. I got "Saved" at Nanas bible study she has at her house. I was afraid that i wasnt right with god so in order for me to be right with him and beable to live with you and the family for all eternaty i asked god to come into my heart and i excepted him as my god. Ugh your mom would be proud if she herd that i did that :). Well big guy until we meet again. Sleep well Cuz. Love you

I LOVE & MISS YOU SHAY!!!!!
Love always, Amanda
When I came home from work this morning I looked at your picture hanging on my wall and for the thousandth time I realized I will never see you again in this life. What a devasting feeling that is. Not to see your beautiful smile or hear your voice once more.I would give all my earthly poessions if I could change this.There is this big broken part of my heart that will never be the same.Just know Shaynie that you will always be my Hero and I will miss you until we meet in Heaven. Sweet dreams baby boy Nan loves you..........
whats up? i miss you soo much. it just seemes the days get longer the more i miss you. it seems like yesterday was when we got the news that you had left all your family and friends on earth. but you joined your family and friends that passed on before you. i just want you to be here with me, watching movies, playing games, and do all the things we use to do as kids. Just please keep me and the rest of the family strong. We all love you and you should never forget that. you are always your baby sisters hero. Shayne always remember your WHOLE family loves you with all their heart and nothing could take the place in our heart that you fill. The place that you hold in my heart will never be completly filled, its missing a part that only will be filled by seeing you in heaven again! I MISS YOU SOO MUCH SHAYNE! Always keep watching over me and keeping my head up!!
I LOVE AND MISS YOU SOO MUCH SHAYNE
*your baby sister Mel
Shayne, wow, words can't express how hard this is for your friends and especially your family. Everytime I hear Lee Greenwood's Proud To Be An American, I think of you and remember all the fun we had. Me and you and Zak, it was the three of us all the time, partners in crime. Going to the beach, parties at my house, going to Myrtle Beach, everything. There is so much i wanted to say to you when you got back. I think about you all the time, and miss you so much. you were the little brother i never got to have. i think about the night before you left we all went to my parents for dinner the night before and you told us all that that was going to be your last meal in the us and we laughed, none of thought this would be it. God i miss you bino. just know that you are always in my thoughts and prayers. love you kid.
Hey Shay. Well our family, your Mom,Tony,Aumtie Holli.Uncle Mark,your Nana, Billy,Mellisa, Justin,Zac,Amanda and Ashley all went to welcome home the 2/2 troops.
It broke our hearts that you weren't there. We gave our support to all your friends and to thoes who didn't come home,I believe there were 16. We met Patrick's mom.dad and two sisters and his aunt and uncle and we all cried together. Shayne you made all of your family proud. The Capt. told us how fearless you were and how you always were there to volunter.
Well my sweet boy I love and miss you so very much as well as your sister Brandi and your brothers.
God Bless You Shaynie....nana
Shay, here I am to wish you a Happy Birthday on your 20th day. The hand of the Lord works in misterious ways His wonders to perform. We do not understand why tho we will know someday when we stand befor our Lord and Master. You will always be my Hero as you will always be my grandson. Sweet dreams baby...I Love You and Miss You Forever....nana
You raise me up so I can stand on mountains; you raise me up to walk on stormy seas; I am strong when I am on your shoulders; You raise me up to more than I can be.....
"Second to None"
when i look to the sky something tells me your here with me, and you make everything alright,
when i feel like im lost, something tells me your here with me and i can always find my way.
I Love You Always!!!
Happy 20th Birthday Shayne Matthew! I miss you so much sweetheart! Rest Peacefully angel!Love you always!
Twenty years ago today I held you in my arms. You were hours old by now. Never in my life have I known such a love as when for the first time I held each of you, my babies in my arms . Brandi, Jusin, Billy, Shayne and Zach. You are all heart of my hearts. Always my babies. On this day, I remember, I see your sweet face, I feel you in my arms, I hold you close. I smile thru tears of sadness knowing how precious those memories are from the very moment you were born , until the very day you took your last breath on earth and your first breath in Heaven. So today I leave this place that goes beyond who I am, where I am wrapped in silence, for a moment, to say, Happy Birthday Dear Little Boy Of Mine. Happy Birthday. I love you Shay. Always and forever, Love your Momma

LOVE YOU ALWAYS!!!
Happy Birthday BUD! I just got a copy of The Franklin Gazette! Guess who made the front page? Yes you got it you did! They want to name the new 140 bridge after you. I think it's a spectacular idea! You deserve it and so does your mom. I bet you are smiling away up there. You always loved to be the center of attention. I will write you soon.
Well i finally made it down to North Carolina. I think that had to be the hardest thing i ever had to do. Meeting pats family crushed my heart cause i knew exactly what they were going through.
Watching the boys all get off the bus and run to their famlies was gutwrenching and heart breaking, Because at that point it became, for me, reality. I met so many of your buddies that were in 2/2. But there was one Marine that stood out and will always in my mind. Shayne i couldn't even tell you his name, but he did more for me then anyone ever could. I was crying on the sidewalk sitting down. He walked right up to me grabed my hand told me to stand up, asked me if i was ok and said "i know mine isnt comming home eaither" those 7 words crushed every wall I could possibly have up. I couldn't even find the words to even ask him if he was ok. Shayne I need you to help me out and help me find this marine and his family so i can know their names. I need to. He hugged me and all the pain and suffereing i had lifted, I cant explain it. Help me out kid, i'll never forget him.
Happy 20th Birthday lil Brother. Your not a teenager anymore.
Love your borther.
*HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHAYNE*
I miss you more and more each day. I wish that i could take everything back so i can see you one more time. I just want to talk to you. I know your there right beside me, but i would do anything just to see your cute face. Your always going to be in my heart and i will never forget you. You were always like my big brother. I can't wait till we meet again. I love you big Bro.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABE! Wow you are an old man..haha.. you're 20 today and it seems like just yesterday we were 5 & 6 running around in nana's backyard playing tag. I wish those days had never ended! though they have ended with time, all the laughs and fun times we had will stay in my heart forever along with memories of your smile. I really miss and love you so much!! Happy Birthday again hun and Rest in Peace Shay! Love you!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHAYNE MATTHEW!!!
MISS AND LOVE YOU MORE THAN EVER.
Happy Valintes day Shayne! I love you with all my heart.
Youre the Magic that Holds the Sky up from the Ground
You're the Breath that Blows these Cool Winds 'round. Miss you like crazy Angel
shayne m. cabino
we have known each other since we were toddlers and as the years past we grew apart and didn't see eachother as much but when you came home it was a blessing to be in your presence.A young man with a lot of pride,hope,love, and a woundeful family standing by your side.we loved seeing smile and hated seeing you cry. The love you showed your family and friends will never be forgotten.happy valentines day shayne, may peace be with you - kevin
Life ain't always what it seem to be. Words can't express what you mean to me! Even though you're gone we still a team
In the future can't wait to see if you'll.Open up the gates for me
Reminisce sometime the night they took my friend. Try to black it out, but it plays again
When it's real feelings hard to conceal. Can't imagine all the pain I feel. Give anything to hear half your breath I know you still livin' your life after death
It's kinda hard wit you not around
Know you in Heaven smilin' down
Watching us while we pray for you
Everyday we pray for you
Till the day we meet again
In my heart is where I keep you friend
Memories give me the strength I need to proceed
Strength I need to believe
Wish I could turn back the hands of time
Give anything to hear half your breath
I know you still livin' your life after death
*I miss you so much*I love you
Happy Early Birthday!
Hey Shayne, Today is uncle bubba's birthday and I know you and he are up in heaven celebrating his birthday. WOW 41. I won't be here on your birthday the 15th so I wanted to post your birthday card now. Grandson, Your a Gift from God!If grandsons came with labels attached, yours would read: Made In Heaven "Happy Birthday Grandson"
I will always miss and love you. On your birthday I want you to know how very much you mean to me and that you will always be my Hero
Love and sweet dreams.........nana
Just sitting here at work thinking of you. I can't believe it's been 3 months. Your birthday is coming soon. In 5 days to be exact.
I know I keep saying this but I wish I had one more day with you so I could share all the things I never got to share with you. I never got the chance to tell you what a cool kid I thought you were and how much I enjoyed spending time with you when I got the chance even though it wasn't often enough. Well kid thats all for now. I Love You!!
Its been a while since I wrote but I didnt forget how could! Not a day goes by where i dont talk about you or think about you.I miss you so much i cant believe its been 4 months without you.Thanks for taking care of me and guiding me every step I take. I love you with all my heart.My Hero
*Peace is seeing the Sunset and knowing who to thank.Love Always forever and to infinity and beyond.
Shaynie, If I could be with you right now you know I'd be there.If I could just see your smile and look into your eyes my day would be complete. But life isn't that simple....So, to remind you how I feel, I'm sending you these words of love to say that I'm missing you in every way.....God Bless you until we see each other again I love you.....nana
ya know what shay.
you think ok im fine and everything is going to be alright then you turn around and God i think you knew everyone i didnt know. The sorry's just keep comming. Shayne i love all my lil brothers each in a different way, but you had the one piece of my heart that can NEVER be replaced.
Its billys 21st birthday and i just want you to be here cause i have no idea what to get him. You know we would have planned out something funny and (mean). HAHA. But thats the kind of brothers we were. I miss our fights and sitting there just talking over a smoke. or going to my friends house. I love you MY LIL' BROTHER. Forever will you stand by my side, Forever will i laugh at comments i know you would make. Forever will i miss you.
Shayne, My heart is so heavy more
so today because once again it is the 6th of the month. I watched the picture clip on Fallen Heros and my heart just continues to break, I didn't think it could break any more but guess I was mistaken. Shayne I want to hold you in ny arms and hug you forever.
Everytime I cook chow mein I want to say common over Shayne were having your favorite food.I know this hurt will go on forever until we are all together again we can never go back but I don't want to do this again.......I love and miss you forever. God keep you in his care.........nana
Hey Sweetheart! Today it is the 6th of yet another month and i'm still missing you as much as I ever did. I just want you to know that if i could i would take your place just so that everyone that loved you could have one more day with you! thats all I wish for everyday is one more day, one more chance to say hey I love you Shay and your one of the best people I've ever known!! I was talkin about you the other day and I made the mistake of saying 'was' thats when i realized that just because your not here in the flesh doesnt mean you not alive! you are forever in my heart and u always will be. So from now on its Shayne Matthew is my cousin and you are one of my best friends and you truly are MY AMERICAN HERO!!! I LOVE AND MISSYOU MORE THAN YOU KNOW! Rest in Peace babe! I hope your having fun with the angels. Love always and forever

Hey Shaynie, here I am again, sounds like an old song...I can't get past this....I miss you sooo much and long to be able to give you a big hug. I know you are in a better place but this is so hard knowing that we are NEVER going to see you again in this life.Your picture on the right brings back sooo many memories flooding back to that day and what I would give to go back to that time and I know that we can't. Just know Shaynie you will never be far from my thoughts and prayers, not that you need prayer now.It is us here who need all the prayer we can receive. "I LOVE YOU SHAYNE. GOD BLESS YOU..........NANA

My heartfelt sympathy to the Cabino family in the loss of Shayne. I did not know Shayne, but my heart is broken and I am sadden for your loss of such a fine young man and hero. May God bring you peace in your heart as you reflect on all the wonderful memories you hold so close. Please know that you are in my heart and prayers.
I send each of you a hug from the most inner part of my heart.
Love and Peace
To live in the hearts

is never to die"
Hey babe! I cant believe the rest of the guys are due back in roughly 2 weeks! Unfortuneately Sean passed away on wednesday... It really makes you realize that no matter how close to coming home you really might be, you are always in danger over there... Though he is your superior, and is 8 years your senior, I know you will show him around... help him 'settle' in... I miss you so much buddy! And am very heartbroken with Sean's death, because he left behind his wife Gen 2 year old son Tyler... I think of you daily, and you're always in my prayers...
Love you babe!
i never had the honor of meeting you, but you seemed like one great guy.u will never be forgotten. always remembered as a hero fighting for his country. r.i.p
Hey Shayne! I havent written in a while i just wanted to say hi and thannk you for keepin me stong this week and helpin me make the right descion.I love you the best angel i could ask for i miss you more n more each day* my hero Shine on*
*peace is seeing the sunset and knowing who to thank*My bestfriend love you
I never knew Shayne but to me he's a true hero. My heart goes out to his family and friends, no words can express how sorry I am for your loss. May he always live in your hearts... God Bless our Troops!
As I said before I didn't know Shayne but I am a friend of Holli's and I just wanted to put in about Holli's fantastic speech in Public Speaking class. Shayne even though we don't know each other I know you were proud of her. The emotion and love that was put into the speech made us all feel as if Shayne was one of our classmates. There was not a dry eye in the class. I just want to put that out there so everyone knows his life and tragic passing touched everyone in our class even though no one knew he was a fellow classmates nephew. As time goes on I know it is still very hard but time eventually will take away some pain. God Bless to the family and everyone who loves him.
randomly found this site so im leavin you a little love. havent seen you in years little guy but wanted to say i love you and all that fun stuff. i miss being little and hugging your skinny lil body. i bet you got huge and i never got to hug that buff bod...i will someday though... hope ur sitting back and smiling up there. keep an eye on us. ill see you when i get there hun.
Not one day goes by where i dont shed a tear, or a moment where I see something that reminds me of moments we had together. I wish there was some way that I could rewind time to the day we last were together and I could just tell you how much i love you and how much you made a difference in my life. There will always be a space in my heart that will be yours and only yours and no one will be able to fill it.
I just always think of the time where we both went out to the club and you just danced and thought you were the hottest thing since sliced bread. You asked me to teach you how to do that dance I do and you couldnt do it as hard as you tried, so you just did your lil two-step. HAHA. So many memories that will never be forgoten! I love you lil bro.
Always and Forever
Hey Shayne, How are you? I wish that you were here so i could ask you that. I miss you. There isn't a day that goes by were i don't think of you. I would do anything just to see you and say good-bye!!! Your always going to be in my heart. I'm never going to forget you. Your my #1 HERO!!! I Love you <3
Hello Shayne, I love and miss you! I wish you were still here on earth with us, because I really really miss you, Shayne I dont like that you are gone.
Shayne i really miss you and i love you. I want a hat like your some day. I love you and your my hero. I wish you were here with me. I REALLY REALLY LOVE YOU!
hey shayne. Hows my big brother doing? I want to ask you this everyday but the thing is i say it but i cant hear a reponse. I wish i could just here you say hey mel one last time! I wish we could get the phone calls of you saying your safe, but now we dont get those. Shayne i know now you are my guardianing angel, and always will be. You guide all of us as a family, and you keep us close in your watch. Just not hearing your voice anymore makes me sad, i never wanted you to leave us. i thought we could keep you here and never let go. i just miss you more and more as the days go on. i know people who really miss you! Just saying hey and i miss you!
Always remember that your baby sister loves and misses you sooo much she cant wait till your in her arms again!
Hey Shay. I wrote you a really long entry when it was three months but it never posted. Just wanted to say I LOVE YOU and MISS YOU more than anything. May angels lead you in. Love you

*Peace is seeing the sunset and knowin who to thank*
Love always and forever and To Infinty and Beyond*XOXOXOXO
Well mom got another year older today. well she was "29" (again). Kinda getting through its not as easy as they said it was going to be. Miss you kiddo.
LOVE ALWAYS AND FOREVER,
I'm getting a tatoo for you. Just a little one though. I miss you bubba.
Hey Shayne... i miss you so much no one can take the place in my heart that was filled by my over powering overprotective brother!! Every time i see your face smiling it makes me wanna cry that i cant see that for real. i would give anything, even the most valuable thing in my life to just have 5 mins or just 5 secs to say good bye to you! Give you the last hug i never gave you before you left for iraq. i would give anything to hear that phone ring at 5:30am and here dad come down the stairs and say "pick up the phone its Shayne!" Just wish you were coming home soon... but now your home with us always, even if we cant see you we know your there! Your always sitting next to me when im alone in my car driving... and blaring the song you wrote and sang, just listening to you voice makes me know your there beside me. Just knowning now that your gone you made a way for us always to remember your voice! I made a special place in my room dedicated to you, with all your pictures and things that remind me of you! My favorite picture is the one of you and me hugging at your going away party, where i look like im almost as tall as you but im wearing heels! To the picture of you in Iraq... and the licence plate dad had made with you name on it. Theres also many more things. The days that go by i just want you to walk threw the door and give me a big hug and i never want to let go. Remember this Shayne Matthew, you will get this hug i want to give you when you meet me at the gates of heaven!! And at that point we will be together again forever and i will never let go!
remember your baby sister loves you and shes always missing you and can't wait to be with you together again!!
I want my bestfriend back.Thats all I want.I miss your n love youw with everything I have to give.Miss you kiddo
Peace is seeing the sunset and knowing who to thank*

*Peace is seeing the sunset and knowing who to thank.I love you
Well a new year has begun and I wanted to check in so that you know you are still thought about all the time. When I think about you I think how sad it is that you will never marry your true love or pace a hospital room as your wife is in labor. At the same time I try to learn a "life" lesson in everything that happens-good or bad. The lesson I am taking from your all to short life is just that..life is too short. My advice: if you’re going to love, love with all you have. What's the point of opening only half of your heart? I don’t think I will ever forget watching your mom sing to your casket at the cemetery. After we left there it made me want to push everyone I love away thinking that if I don’t love it won’t hurt to say goodbye. After I thought about that I realized that the love is what keeps me going. It is what puts a smile on my face. It’s my wonderful husband turning on the TV for me every morning so I can hear the news even before my eyes have opened. It’s how my Niece, Harlee says Hi T.T. that makes my heart melt and makes me want to stay frozen in that moment forever. It’s all about the love. Its all about how one feisty, adorable, brave punk has brought a community of people together all because of his love. Shayne you will always be missed and I will never forget the life lesson you taught me with your death. I love you!
Hi my sweet Shayne, I sit and look at your picture to the right of me and see that smile and look on your face and it brings me back to your graduation at Boot Camp. How I wish we could go back to that time and change everything but that is not possible. I just want to hold you in my arms and never let you go...Shayne there is such an ache in my heart every day and it never gets better. I wear your dog tags and your picture around my neck and never take it off. It helps a little I can feel your spirt says It's okay Nana I'm here ....it is a new year and it will be three months in 4 more days and it seems like forever and yet just yesterday when your Mom called me and just said come to my house, even then I never thought you had left us........such a devasting blow to think that that blond haired, brown eyed boy who was such a fiesty kid had left us for ever....Your footprints and your hugs will forever be engraved in my heart. I love you and will miss you till the day I die...........nana

HAPPY NEW YEAR SHAYNE MATTHEW
LOVE YA BUNCHES
Well it's New Years Eve, and here I sit in front of my computer thinking of you. The days seem to go by so fast. Yet, my heart still aches just as much then it did the day I heared you passed. At times it aches even more. It's like reality has finally sunk in. I often reflect on the days you would come over to aunti Charlenes house & try and beat up my husband. You guys would wrestle around on the floor for hours. I'd give anything to bring you back if only for one day so I could tell you all the things I didn't get to share with you when you were here. How much I love you and how fun you were to be around. My husband and I had an awesome time with you when we went to Maine white water rafting. That was such a good weekend! I couldn't get over how such a skinny kid could eat so much! There was never a dull moment that weekend. I'v learned alot from you.... I promise 2006 will be a year of change, rememberance and dedication. You will not be forgotten! I love & miss you.
Your Big Cousin,
Hey my Shayne,
i miss you more and more... everytime i get into my car i wanna cry because your right there next to me but i cant see you like i want to. seeing your picture everywhere i turn in my room and in the house, just makes me wanna cry. i know your always watching me, and always being my protector. everyone says "its going to get easier as the day go on" but they are wrong, the more the days go on, the more i miss you and it doesnt get easier! i just want you to come threw the door and give me the hugs we use to do as kids! I MISS AND LOVE YOU SHAYNE!! Always remember your baby sister loves you and your her HERO!!

Christmas has come and gone. The new year is about to begin. As I'm sitting here writting this my 5 year old just asked me "mom who are you writing to" So I told him "Shayne". He asked "Will it get sent to God?" "Yes" I said. "Good" he said "because I like Shayne and want him to be able to read it"
Shayne we all miss you! I would do anything to see your smiling face again. I know we will meet again someday. I love you!
Everyday I miss you. They say it gets easier.. They lied!!! I still see you as I always have... You are my hero, the one I look up to and the one I picture myself to be. ALWAYS!!!! ME & YOU BRO!!!

*Peace is seeing the sunset and knowing who to thank* Hope your having fun angel.MY HERO
Love always and forever and to infitinity and beyond
Hey Shaynie, I was told to get a journal and to write in that,but I just want everyone who reads this to know how very much I love and miss you. We had Christmas at Auntie holli's and she cooked yuc yuc you know better huh? well any way there was your Mom,Tone,Justin and Zac,BIll and Melissa,Uncle,Jenn,AuntieHeidi,Adam
Aimee'Jayden David Ashley Joey Mark Popa and Me.Your Mom gave us all a 17x20 picture of you in your Marine uniform and all we did was cry. It was a very emotional day but we all pulled together and comforted each other. Then your Mom gave me a bobble head freedom fighter with your picture where his face is and I cried again. I wish I could change places with you cuz parents aren't suppose to lose their children and things would be better. After we ate we all went to the cementary and sang Silent Night and hung our ornaments on your christmas tree. Shayne it just wasn't Christmas without you.I love you sweet boy.... Nana
Hey Shaynie. It is 3:24 am the morning after Christmas! I just wanted to let you know that I miss and love you so much. It was really hard doing christmas without you this year. I miss seeing the "what did you get me" face and all of us fighting over who got the better presents. I know I'll see you again someday and I can't wait. love you baby!! Watch over us!
Hey hun! Well the two bigest family holidays have come and passed... And it all seems so surreal to me sometimes... I catch myself thinking of you, O'Grady, Doc Smith, Sgt Hodshire, Tice, and many others whom are over there with 2/2 right now... and it takes a minute to dawn on me that you, Capt. Swisher, and Sgt. Hodshire all will not be walking off those buses in February... Its strange because I sit here looking at your picture and it all seems so real... It feels like you are sitting right there in front of meand that all of this was a nightmare... I miss your infectious personality soo much... but I know one day i will be filled with it's warmth again... until then I take comfort in knowing that you are up there watching over all of us who love and miss you!
Never to be forgotten! Semper Fi!
Merry Christmas Shayne!!!! Love you and miss you so much!!! Love you always!!!!
Not a day goes by that ur not in my mind and in my heart. Wishing you a Merry Christmas, and that im always thinking of you... your always ur baby sister's hero now and forever! I LOVE YOU
Life will never be the same. I misss you soooo much. Christmas has come and gone and I still just want you home with me!!!I love you so much and miss you more each day!!!!
Hey Shay, So its about 3:00 am Christmas morning and all i can think about is the time when we were kids and you would wake me up at the crack of dawn and tell me to open my stocking that mom laid at the end of the bed so that we could go and wake up mom so that we could open the presents. I would give anything just to have that this year. It doesnt really feel like christmas this year. I kept asking mom if the presents i was wrapping were for you, or how i was mistaking other people for you. Its alot harder then i could have ever imagined. I miss you kiddo.
Your oldest brother.
Wish you were here my lil hero.Not a days goes by.Love you my bestfriend
jess*peace is seeing the sunset and knowing who to thank!I LOVE YOU
Hey Sweetheart. I went and lite a candle for you tonite & Me and Ange went to visit you the other day. I still cant believe my bestfriend since kindergarten is gone.

That picture of you in your marine suite is so handsome.My mom found some pictures of the crew at the lake a few weeks ago im gonna put them on line soon soo everyone can see! I miss you so much shayne. I love you with all my heart.
*Peace is Seeing the Sunset and knowing who to thank* and thats you*
I love you with all my Heart,
Jess..Since Kindergarten xoxox
Wow this really is happening ha? It really takes a while to realize that I will never see you again... on earth anyway. It's strange because I wasn't someone who saw you everyday. Sometimes less that once a year but even still I miss you. I take the opportuinity to tell anyone who will listen to me that freedom is not free and that you died so we can be free. I have your memorial card from the funeral home on my computer monitor at work and several people ask about you and I tell them how much of a punk you were and at the same time an angel. I don't think I will ever forget babysitting you and your brothers and you guys running wild in that house on Charlotte Ct. Wow you were wild. I am sorry I didn't get a chance to tell you I Love You in person but I know you hear me now. So until next time I Love You!
I have added my favorite picture of you. If I remember right you are 3 in this picture.
I love you so much and miss you more than anything!!!
The world will never be the same without you.... neither will I
Sorry it took me so long but i didn't know if i could do it but spending the last few weeks with Justin,Ashley(a.k.a.crash),and Ashley's best friend Krista i knew it was time. Let me tell you what we have been doing besides think of you and even then you still never left our minds. I now listen to country music i now know your family from your moms side and they are great but i now need to go into my side let me start be saying that you are my HERO and when i look at you i see myself thats because when i was growing up i looked up to your father who now i see myself and i'm proud of that. And if you in that for some reason Justin is with me and we'll never leave one another. I miss you so much but i know that you and Grandma are looking after me i can't wait for the day that i'm up their with you i have i lot to talk about. Thanks for being a great HERO i will never forget about you i love you so much i miss you so much but theirs one thing i can count on i will be with you one day can't wait we have alot to catch up on. See you soon love you. Your Cuz Shawn
Wow! Today stuff is hitting me real hard. I look at that smirk on you face in that picture and I would do anything to see it again. I was thinking about that day when Nana lived in Foxboro I think or somewhere near there and me and you were putting Joey up in cheerleading moves haha. And when he fell and got blood on your jersey you rushed in the house and made me find something to wash it out with. haha. And when we were swimming in my Grams pool and you tried to see how long you could hold me under water lol and I scratched the skin off of the back of your neck. I miss days like that so much and I can't believe that I'll never get the chance to spend that time with you ever again. I just keep thinkin about South Carolina when me and you went shopping at WALMART!! for jeans. You swore if I told anyone you would never talk to me again! haha. I miss you more than ever and I just wish that I could tell all of this to you and not to a guestbook. I hear songs on the radio that remind me of you and it is so hard to deal sometimes. But, I love you Shayne and I can't to see your smiling face again. Watch over the family and keep us all safe. Love you Angel!
I would like to take this opportunity to extend my sincere condolences to the family and friends of Lance Cpl. Shayne Cabino. I served as a representative of the Mass. DOC Honor Guard for Shayne's services and was very impressed at the signs of support from his friends, family and fellow Marines. I recall that everyone had such kind words to say about him. While I never had occasion to meet Shayne, I am thankful for brave men and women like him who protect my freedom each and everyday. I hope you will know, that I shall keep you all in my good thoughts. Real hero's live forever, certainly you must trust that Shayne will!!!
Im sorry it took me soo long to get on here... i just couldnt bring myself to do it, i need to stay focused enough as i can for baby Quintcey. well its been 2 months bud and time is just flying right bye. Your on our minds all the time, When me and the baby say good night i give him kisses for you, I always let him know what a great cousin you are and what you did for us! I really hope you got the pics i sent you of him! Thank you for doing all you did for us it takes someone strong and real to do what you did! The song "Who youd be today" has me in tears everytime i hear it! We got a new pony and named him after your silly bug walk you always did. his name is bugsy. he is a little trouble making brat just like you where when you came up here!! i will never forget the day you wanted to ride and thought you were a tough guy and smacked montey on the butt and went flying off the otherside! you left us with so many great memories, I LOVE AND MISS YOU CUZ! Thanks for everything you did! Cant wait to see you again someday! Me and your lil baby cousin Quintcey love you so much. GOD BLESS AND REST IN PEACE
Thank you for what you did for our country... you are amazing... <><
I can't believe it's been 2 months. I think of you often. Jen & I visited you on November 25th and left a sleigh filled with Christmas flowers. I sit back and think of how I should have made more time to spend with you. I guess I just got carried away with my busy schedual. The kids, work & being a wife. If there is anything I learned from your death it's that life is to short and you never know when it might end. I promise to take care of your mom! I check in with her from time to time and drop in now & then. You truely are an American HERO you are loved and missed very much. You will forever remain in our hearts!
You and my husband Nickolas had many fun time together, It was a plesure getting to no you... may you both RIP.
*2 months to long shayne* Think about you everyday. Peace is seeing the sunset and knowing who to thank. I love you* Hope your having fun.My lil hero
Love always and Forever
Can you believe its been almost 2 months... it is so astonishing to me. Well, Thanksgiving came and passed... I couldnt stop thinking about you the day before... to the point where I heard a song that reminded me of you and I just started crying... Not just for my greif in your absence, but especially for the grief of your family having to spend their first thanksgivng with out you. It tore me apart... I tried to get in touch with Mary, but we played phone tag. Ugh, I miss you so much... I know that if you were here you could help me get through this with Christian, and that you would also help him keep his mind in the game over there and off of our issues back home... Knowing you, you would call me just to make me laugh, you would be able to take my mind off of the problems, if even for just a moment in time. You were always very good at that, and for the times taht you allowed me to forget my problems for a simple moment I am so very thankful... I sit here looking at your picture as I type and I cant help but smile... that damn smirk always got me... know that your memory will be with me forever, And that I got a new tattoo in memory of my funny friend... I miss you and I am thinking of you babe!
shayne, I came on to see what auntie holli wrote and as I sat here looking at your picture and remembering that we were with you at boot camp when that picture was taken,I just wish we could go back to that day and have everything turn out different. Shaynie I miss you sooo much and I will never stop loving you...Your memorial service came from Iraq to your mom the other day and she came over so we could watch it. I cried through the whole thing. It was so sad and when they did the roll call and you didn't answer I finally realized that it is really true, you are never coming back to us as you left. Shaynie my heart is broken into a million pieces.When Uncle bubba died I thought I would never feel this way again. I just know God needed you more than we did, that your purpose was fulfilled. I know I will never take anyone for granted again. Just know how proud of you I am and how much I love and miss you....nana
I'm sitting here thinking of you as always,hoping that this is all just a bad dream but i know deep in my heart that it's for real.Shayne, I miss you so much and hope that you know how very much I love you and how proud of you I am and always will be.Rest in peace my sweet nephew, friend, and Hero.
<3 U Babe,
I Can't believe its been a over a month since we all heard the neew about our HERO and our SOLDIER! There is not one day where I dont think of you and how we used to laugh at stupid things or just smile at each other from across the room. People say it gets easier everyday but I dont think thats true.. Everyday I see the pictures on my wall of your smiling face and wish that I could see the real thing. Theres a hole in my heart and no one can ever fill that space, and it will never be filled until I meet you that sunny day on the other side of the clouds. I met your friend Nathan that was with you through basic training and up until that day of your accident. He's a real nice kid. I just wish I could have met him under different circumstances. I hope you hear the stories I tell you whenever I go to the cemetery from heaven. If i could just have one more day with you i would be the happiest girl in the world. Just to hear you say amanda i love you hun and give me one of your giant bear hugs would stop me from crying everyday. It just doesnt seem real. Until the day I die I promise you that I will always tel hailey and zach and jayden stories about how awesome you were and how much you love them! I promise to love you forever! Stay safe baby boy and say hi to uncle and granny for me. Until next time I miss and Love you soooooooo much
Love Always and Forever
My Precious Shayne, How I miss you! My days and nights are consumed with thoughts of you. I can't seem to find any solace anywhere... I have a letter from you that you wrote last Thanksgiving and how you said how much your dinner sucked.. I'd give anything to have you sitting at dinner this Thanksgiving..I am so sad that you aren't here. I remember when we owned the house in Norton and you and Joe slept over and the next morning you both woke us all up taking orders for what you guys were going to cook us for breakfast. the mess you two left and how you sat the hot frying pan on the table and burnt it. I'd have a million tables with a burnt mark on it if it would bring you back home.All the Christmas's we spent together after you kids got through opening all your presents from your Mom and Tony and then you would come to my house and everyone would be there and you kids would open all your gifts from everybody else. How much you loved the chow mein I made and how you called your mom and wanted tuna fish and crackers alot of it and how I went out and bought all kinds of things you liked and mailed them to you and you never received them. I will never forget all the wonderful times we had as a family. I remember how you promised to come stay in Florida at my condo and now that can never happen and my heart is broken into a million pieces and I don't think it will ever stop hurting... I got pictures developed of your going away party and there was a picture of you and me hugging and one of you and Amanda and one of you and Joe and one of you and Jessie,and you kneeling down with Zac and you and Uncle. Oh how this is killing me..I Love You Shayie. Just know how much we all love and miss you .....nana
Lord its been over a month. And each day I try to get a lil stronger and try to hold everything together. While deep inside im screaming, and wishing that its all just a nightmear. I will always remember and hold dear when we took the picture of me on your shoulders and together we were about 12 feet tall. Like i said before and will always say, You were the one holding me up and keeping me strong. I love you baby brother. "keep it real" always!
I can't believe that it has been over a month since you have been gone. I wanted to take a minute to write especially today..Veteran's Day. I, along with my sister feel bad that I didn't stay in touch more but that will never take away my memories. It is times like these people realize that life is full of "should haves" I think of you often and am trying to live my life so I don't have any "should haves".
I love you Shayne. RIP.
There's not a day that goes by that I don't think of you. I have your picture on my desk and I glance at it often. I remember we were so close as kids. You were always over the house or playing football in the field near by. I remeber when we went white water rafting. It was so cold out that day it actually snowed the morning we rafted. You were so cold on the river that your lips were blue! You & sean bought those nice warm black sweats. You lived in those sweat pants for the rest of the weekend. We lost touch in your Senior year when you moved to canton. We saw eachother once in a while but not often enough. I'm actually sadden by the fact that I didn't make more of an effort to stay close with you. I miss you Shayne Matthew. Don't ever forget that I love you!!
I cant believe its been a month.Wow! I miss you so much and I pray to you every nite and I know your around me all the time helping me get thru this.I miss you so much! I know your having fun up there with Big John! I know your partyin like crazy.Miss you every single day. I love you my lil Soilder. Watch over us!
My HeRo!! Miss you like crazy.Anges wont be the same without you xoxo
Since Kindergarten..MY hEro
Shayne, I am a little late with this, I haven't been able to bring myself to get on line. I worked on the 6th the one month and my prayer was please God help me to get through this day. I went to see you after work and I just want you to know how very much I miss and love you. You are constantly in my thoughts day and night. I look at your picture with Justin on your shoulders and would give anything to be able to reach up and give you a big hug like I always did. I know you are up in heaven with uncle bubba and I know you will be there with him when Jesus brings me home until then just know that I love you...Nana
There's a hundred times a day where i think of you and get caught short of breath. It seems like yesterday you sat on the couch right in front of me, cracking jokes & asking for those stupid buffalo wings you loved. I know your up in heaven partying, living the good life, but we do miss you. Well, your forever a hero here. *stay crazy up there soldier*
Wow, I cannot believe how fast time seems to slip away! I think of you daily, but I thought about you so much yesterday, and I could not figure out why for the life of me... then as soon as I got home last night (from Rack'ms, the last place we hung out together before you deployed) and put my phone on the charger I looked at the date... It'd been a month... I was so amazed that 30 days have already passed... it still only seems as though a few days have! I still miss you just as much as I did a month ago... two months ago, or even three months ago... I will never forget our conversations while you were in Iraq... and especially not the ones here... Please look over Christian and help him get through what we are currently dealing with... He still misses you like CRAZY!! Love you hun!
I am at a loss for words today. It's one month now and God has been so gracious to me, giving me the wisdom of a 9 year old, who says "what's the big deal he's in heaven and we'll see him again. That's where we will live forever anyways". What an eternal perspective that is. I take comfort and have peace knowing that you are with Jesus. I'm jealous. But today the tears won't stop pouring off my face. I miss you're tall, skinny butt sooooo much. Wish you were here to give me a big hug. But instead you are probably getting a big hug from Jesus right now and I would never wish that type of peace away from you no matter how much I miss you. I love you and have learned that our journey here on earth is incredibly short and in that respect I will see you soon my friend.
Shayne, Wow did that month fly by. It seems like just last week we were saying our good-byes to you when u left for Iraq. And it feels like only just yesterday we found out you were gone. I cant help but stop and stare at ur picture sitting there on the table and think of you nothing less than a hero. But the things that i miss the most are for one.. your smile, and for two.. the way you used to bite ur tongue to the side an lunge at me with ur spider-man legs and your octopus arms. Well i miss and love you shayne with all my heart. But im not worried cause i know you'll be there to escort me through the gates.
Love you kid,
Shayne... It's been already a month today and it feels like only yesterday that we got the news you were gone. You are my first thought in the morning, my last thought at night and every thought in between. I miss you so much and will always love you. I can't wait until we are all together again.
Shayne. 1 month today babe.Not a day will go by. I miss you like crazy. Thank you for helping me get through this month. Your a perfect Angel. I miss you so much kiddo. I love you. Hope your having fun.Miss you lil hero!
Sincer Kindergarten...MY HERO!
Hey Shayne you'll always be my hero. I remember hanging out with you junior year and you had such a personality that noone I've known ever had and you were always happy. I'll always remember you Shayne and we shall meet again bro.
Well it has been almost a month since we found out that you were gone. I wish that I could talk to you and just tell you how much i miss you but its impossible and I think that is what sucks the most about this. Not to mention the fact that I miss our inside jokes and my outcast partner. I really miss you so much. I think about you everyday and I thought it might get easier to think of you but it doesn't. Look out for us up there and don't forget who loves you the most. Your family. Love you babe. Keep it safe for us and get it ready. Be good. Miss and Love you. See you when i get there.
HI SHAYNE, I AM YOUR AUNTIE HOLLI BEST FREIND AT WORK, YOUR AUNT AND I LOVE EACH OTHER LIKE SISTER. SO THAT MEAN YOU ARE MY SPECAIL NEPHEW@HERO. SO TAKE CARE MY MOM@GRANDMA IN HEAVEN. LOVE YOU JOYCE SHEPARD@FAMILY.
Shayne I am so sorry that something like this can happen to such a young man. You are in a better place that is filled with happiness and no hurt..I will neevr forget you and will always miss you..
You were an awesome kid. I will always remember your baby face.
You would come over all the time to make music with my brother Lenny. You would always make me laugh. There was just something about you that always made me laugh.
It's so hard to understand why you are gone. I hope you are at peace now and looking down on all of us. I will never forget you.
It has been 21 days since Capt.Brian and Gunny went to your mom's door, no words needed to be spoken once they were seen, we all knew. Shaynie my sweet baby boy you are so missed and I thank God that things worked out the way they did when you were born. You spent so much time with all of us and we saw your first smile, your first word and your first step.. no one can ever take all that away from us. Your birth was already marked for what laid ahead of you from the time you were wearing that baby marine outfit with 2/2 on the insignia. Only God knew his plans.There are so many memories that filter through my mind you,Justin Billy and Brandi in the leaves playing when you were just a baby. Uncle going home to Jesus when you 2 1/2 months old and Brandi saying to uncle will you be here when I am 15 and uncle laughing and saying yes Brandi Lee piano I will be there. We all thought he would be there but God had other plans, just as he did with you. Shayne I thought I had cried all the tears I could shed but find that not to be true. I will love you until the end of time and when God calls me home I pray uncle bubba and you will be there to welcome me. I miss you my sweet Shayne I see you with your blonde hair blue eyes and your smile that could always make me feel better. I love you sweet baby nite...nana....
What can I say about my Cousin, my friend, MY HERO!, Shayne Matthew. I love you more than you will ever know! Every day I wake up with you on my mind. I can't wait for the day when I will finally see you again. I miss your smile and your laugh.. I miss you every second of everyday... No matter what anyone says you were always my favorite and you always will be. Look after Granny and Uncle up there.. Tell them I love them! You'll always be in my heart Babe! I Love You Shay!
Shayne I miss you so much. I think about you all the time. I cant wait to see you again.Watch over Us angel.Not a day will ever go by. Sine Kindergarten. I love n miss you.
Shayne means so much to me, hes the protector of me... hes my big brother who has been and always will be my hero... he was fighting to make the world a better place... he died so young but his spirt will live on in all of our family and friend who loved him dearly! I know there are going to be things that im goign to miss with my brother not here... hes going to miss many things i wanted him to see. Hes always going to be looking down on me from heaven with all the other loved ones that people have lost. Always remember that Shayne will always be in our thoughts and prayers and will always be loved and remebered! He will always be my big brother the "over protective" brother he always was and always will be and now hes always got eyes on everyone he loves in life! So remember this Shayne... your baby sister will always love you and there will always be a place in her heart that only can be filled when we are together again in heaven... I LOVE YOU SHAYNE... always remember that!!!
Shayne you will be in my heart forever. You will be sadley missed .
We are so sorry about the loss of your son. We thank you and Shayne for his sacrifice. It is Marines like Shayne that truly make America the land of the free and the home of the brave. "GARY OWEN"
Dear Cabino Family,
My husband use to work with Shayne's father and we would both like to extend our deepest sympathy to all of your family. In our eyes he will be remembered as a true American Hero. Even though we never knew him it still hits you in the heart to hear of his loss. Again please excpet our whole hearted sympathy. We will pray for your family to heal. May Shayne travel with God now in a much safer and more beautiful place.
Mr. & Mrs. Brian Boucher
We will miss you Shayne. You are a hero. You were selfless and always helping others. Your smile was infectious and your laugh contagious. You always lit up every room you entered. We were so glad that you got to meet Jonathan before you left for Iraq. I wish that you could have seen him in his Marine attire that you gave him. Uncle Danno and I will make sure that he knows his cousin Shayne - the crazy rambunctious kid you were and the great man that you became. We will never forget you, and will always love you. You will be in our hearts forever, until we meet again.
It's circumstances like this that make people come together and realize how we take life for granted everyday. People who fight for us, risking their own lives for us...they are the ones who really appreciate life for what it is. Living every moment to the fullest and especially doing unselfish things,not many people can say they do. I have so much respect for those who do. Shayne M. Cabino you will be remembered as a hero, and in my book nothing is better then that. Rest In Peace Shayne. You will never be forgotten.
Shayne, you are the definition of hero. Millions of people around the country envy you including me. Because of you I can sleep in peace every night. You gave the ultimite sacrafice and will be forever remembered for your courage and bravery. A million thank you's couldn't even come close to how grateful I am for what you have done to enrich this world. Rest in Peace Shayne
We did not know Shayne but our hearts have been touched at this time. Our son, Jason, is also in the Marines 2/2 and in Iraq at the present time. We will remember you and your family in our prayers and we especially pray that our Heavenly Father will bring you peace and comfort.
SHAYNE, Words cant even begin to describe how much you meant to me. Since Kindergarten you have been by my side.Always torturing and teasing me when we were little. To spending endless hours on the phone talking about absolutly nothing at all. To school field trips like Gettysburg where we were inseperable. The summer before you left stands out in my mind the most. We had so much fun doing the craziest things. Watchin you on a dirt bike was so scary.That summer we were together almost every day at Ange& Johnnys and it was like things had never changed between us.So many memories it would take me forever to list them all What im trying to say is.
Shayne was and amazing person. He could light up the room with is infectious smile. He could make the light of theworst situation and could make anyone feel better about anything.Ill never foget the way he changed my life for the better. You are truely and inspiration and HERO.Ill never forget you....Since Kindergarten.
My deepest sympathy is with your family. I love you with all my heart Shayne.
" Everywhere I go
Every smile I see
I know you are there Smilin back at me
Dancin in Moonlight I know you are free
Cause I can see your Star Shinin down on me"
I love you Shayne.Ill Never Forget.Since Kindergarten.....
We had so many plans for the future but God had other plans for us.I will live life to the fullest because a part of you has been and always will be a part of me. The world now sees you as I always have, you have always been my HERO!!! I can only hope as you look down on me that I can make you half as proud of me as I have always been of you. Ilove you always!!! Don't ever forget, the world loves you because "you're a CABINO"

It's so hard even now to find the right words to say. I love you so much! I will always remember watching you play ball behind aunti charlenes house, swimming in the pool, fourth of july and white water rafting! May you rest in peace!!!!
I only met Shayne once at my nana funeral. not relaly a good place for a meeting but he seemed like a awesome men. He was always smiling, and the first thing he sed to me was im so happy to meet you. I know he is a real hero. I am so proud of him! you will be greatly missed! i love you rest in peace!
<3 Your cousin
It's hard to belive that you are gone....It was only 2 weeks ago that we spoke after lunch. It was so funny seeing you there. I remember the night before we left when we spoke. Tinking about it sends chills up my spine. You were such a great friend. I hated everything about Boston before meeting you. My New York pride wouldn't allow me to be friends with you but you showed me how easy it was to look past that, especially while intoxicated.....
I am sooo sorry Shayne. I should have been there for you. I am sorry I wasn't. I am glad that you can now be at peace though. I will never forget you and I will do my damnest to make sure no one else does either.
If you see my friend Joy up there, take care of her for me.... I love you brother.

Shayne, I dont know if you ever knew it but I love you and will miss you forever and never forget you. God himself could not have picked a better angel.
Shayne...For as much as it hurt today to meet you in Boston, I was never so proud of you.You truly are an "American Hero". You will always hold a special place in my heart...I love you babe.
Until we meet again...
Shayne..wow me u and court had soem pretty awesome times in maine!!hah...wow we all miss u so much!!its so unreal that ur not here..
Shayne was the greatest person alive. He always had a smile on his face, and was always puttin a smile on everyone elses face. He was the best cousin anyone could ever have, lucky to me he was my favorite cousin. He would always come up to maine and spend time with us. Ill never forget the summer he spent a lot of time up here,It had to be the best summer of my life. I grew so close to him after that period of time. all the memories i had with him, ill never forget them. Just one of his smiles and one look in his eyes could light up a room of total darkness. He was my hero, my inspiration, without him in life i dont think i would have made it. He was kinda like one of my best friends, even though we were thousands of miles apart. ill never forget the day i found out he joined the marines, i got so scared, but i knew he was doing it to defend out country. So i was proud of what he beleived in. And the last time i talked to him on the phone before i left. ill alwasy remember it. I remember writting him a letter one night, then i found out the next day he was gone, and i was so upset. Theres no words to describe the love i got for him. i love you shayne! always in our hearts. Deepest sympathy to all other family members=(
Shayne you will be greatly miss by all of us here, we love you lots and will miss you deeply. Lots of love always and forever:)
Shayne I love and miss you more than anything ... I've been thinking about you none stop. You are my american hero <3 rest in the sweetest of peace
*yOu TrUeLy WeRe A sOlDiEr*
I just want to say that I am sorry about the loss of Shayne, and send my sympathy to his family and friends. I worked with Justin and Billy. I never had the privlege of getting to know Shayne very well, but they always had stories about him. I wish I could have gotten to know Shayne better. Shayne was a true american hero.
Shaynie, Today you come home and we will meet your plane in Boston, I am so proud of you "My Hero" everywhere I go to buy newspaper's I tell the clerks you see this Marine, well he is my grandson,he died in Iraq serving the United States for our freedom. Oh, Shanie my heart is broken into a million pieces. I Love You baby. Until the rapture...Nana
Please accept our heartfelt condolences on the loss of Shayne. Our son is currently serving with 2/2 in Iraq (his second tour). Our prayers are with you and your family.
Thank you for serving your country. You are a true American hero. May you rest in peace.
I only met Shyane once and that was at Nana Beryl's funeral. I have really no memories of him but hearing what everyone says about Shyane, he seemed like an amazing kid. He is def. an American Hero. He risked his life to save our country and we are all proud of him for everything he has done for all of us. May he Rest in Peace.
all of my love,
Jessica Marie Smith
I want to extend my deepest sympathy and prayers to the Cabino family on this devastating loss of such a wonderful American Hero. Coming from a military family myself, I know just how proud Shayne must have been to wear his uniform and protect our freedom. I grew up playing softball with Brandy, and remember Shayne as a little kid at the ball field. As I drive through Franklin and see all the flags lowered in honor of your brother, son, and friend I want you to know that many people are thinking of you and him. All my prayers God Bless
I did not know Shayne personally but i am friends with his sister. I remmember how proud she was when he graduated from bootcamp. And to see her come into school yesterday and seeing the pain inside of her hurt. Shayne, you are a hero among heros, and the bravest of the brave. Canton, and the world, is a lesser place without you. Rest in peace.
Shayne was the nicest guy I have ever met in my whole entire life. His smile just lit up the room everytime he walked in. I remember in our 9th grade oceanography class, we would always disect the squid together ... well actually he would disect it for me because he knew how gross I thought it was. Then he would take the ink from the quid's 'ink sack' and rub it all over my arm. I was in both Shayne's oceanography and spanish class, and once you figured out you had a class with that guy, you knew you were in for a good year of class. He always put a smile on everyones face. Even after I moved from Mass., we would talk on the phone everynight and he would make sure I was having a good time here in Kansas. He was truely the best and I am going to miss him more than anything. I love you, Shayne ... stay with me <3
The news of Shayne's death took hours to process. I've watched Shayne grow from a small child to a courageous young man. I hadn't seen Shayne in several years until this past June during unfortunate events that brought the whole family together again. He was so loving and full of life. His last words to me were, how nice it was to see me again and that he had missed all of us. I told him as I kissed him goodbye, "Keep your head down sweetheart and do us proud!" That he did. We love you and miss you baby Shayne. Your smile will live on in the hearts of all those who knew you and your great sacrifice will not be forgotten.
To the entire Cabino and Cipriano family, if there is anything you need please let me know.
We love you all.
Dear Family of Shayne Cabino,
Please accept my deepest sympathy. I too have a son who is serving in Iraq and is part of 2/2. As Marine family when one of our own is suffering we all feel the hurt. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
I didn't know Lcpl Cabino, but I wanted to extend my sincerest sympathies to his family and friends. My brother is serving in 2/2, and I can't imagine how devestating this must be. I am proud of the job he and his fellow Marines are doing.
God bless and best wishes.
I remember turning 1 and having Shayne at my birthday. I remember from pictures not memories. I was never around my father's side of the family much. I remember seeing his big, beautiful smile at my grandmother's funeral. I will remember him as a happy, charming, loving cousin. I am so sorry for his close family members that got to know him much more than me. I know I don't have many memories but I will always remember him as an American Hero. Rest In Peace.
I will always remember Shayne with a smile. He was one of the best people you would ever meet. He knew exactly how to get you to smile. I am so proud to be his cousin and to know that he is a hero to so many people. I love you shaynie more than anything and I miss you so much. Grey Sheep Babe!!! I can't wait to see you again and I know you are getting it ready for us up there. Love you shayne.
I would first like to just thank everyone for their kind thoughts and loving prayers for my family and myself. The loss of my lil brother has been extremely devistating for everyone. Shayne was one of the most extravagent people I have ever known. Always making something bigger then it really was by adding a humorous twist. You were never saddened or unhappy when you were in his presence. The joy, love, and acceptance he brought to my life is just a few of the many things I will never be able to forget.
The things we talked about and did through out our time together will be engraved into my memories forever, regardless if they were good things or bad.
You will be missed greatly Shay. We all love you. Until we are back together...
My thoughts and prayers are with you at this very difficult time. May God Bless and keep you in His care. My son is currently serving with 2/2 WPNS.
I didn't know Shayne but I am a friend Holli. My heart extends to you. The way she spoke of Shayne showed me and everyone around us that he was loved and always will be. You should be nothing but proud of him and what he has accomplished in his life. God Bless
I am terribly sorry for your loss, I did not know Shayne,but my son did. He is a Marine with 2/2 Golf.He remembers talking with Shayne and finding out that the two of them had both gone to Davis-Thayer elementary school in Franklin,they were a couple of years apart. It indeed is a small world. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time, God bless. Karen
Jodi, Tony and Family:
I am very sorry to hear of your loss. Shayne was a great kid.
To Mark and the Cabino family I am so sorry for your loss. I grew up in the Army and my cousin served in Iraq for 18 months. Military families are truely special in the sacrafices they make for our country. At such a young age Shayne had the courage to join the Marines and put his life on the line for our country and for that my family and I hold him in our hearts as a Hero.

To the family and Friends of Shayne:
Hello, my name is Chelsea Boyd. I am so sorry to hear of your extreme loss. Shayne was a good friend of my husband and myself. He and my husband left for Iraq the same night… They were told that they probably would not see each other after they arrived at their destination, because Shayne was in Golf company and my husband is in Easy. However, by some twist of fate, they saw each other all the time… they were constantly running into each other at the chow hall, the computer centers, the phone centers, and various other locations, allowing them time and means to make plans for us all when they returned home.
Your son/brother/friend was an incredible guy, although I’m sure you don’t need a stranger to tell you that! He always made me laugh, whether it was something he said, a face he made, or something he did. He and my husband were hilarious when they were together! They simply fed off of each others humor, and it was an amazing thing to see!
I was pretty much devastated to find out about the accident, however once I came to the realization that my husband must not have known yet, I was fully drained. I didn’t know how to tell him; and telling him had to have been one of the hardest things I’ve done in my life! Not so much telling him; but knowing that they had become even closer since arriving in Iraq, I was worried my husband would feel guilty knowing that he had escaped a similar attack on September 9th with simply a broken wrist. I have to admit hearing a grown Marine break down and cry was truly heartbreaking! I hope you know how loved Shayne was, if not by anyone else down here in NC, at least by my husband and myself!
I’m very sorry if my letter has made anything worse, emotionally; however I needed to be able to pay my respects to my friend, and I knew of no other way, seeing as I wont be able to make it up to Mass. for the funeral. I would like to know when it is being held and where however, so that I can send my love along with a small token of respect.
Once again, I am so sorry for your lose! And if you ever need anything, or anyone to talk to I will be here, Semper Fidelis!

To the Family of LCPL Shayne Cabino,
I reach out to you in this hour of darkness. We don't know each other personally but my son is also a Marine so we are family.
I thank you for raising such a great son and one that loved his country and loved the freedom we have. He gave his all and for that we will always remember what it cost for us to be free.
My heart and prayers go out to you in this time of sorrow.
God be with you till we meet again;
By His counsels guide, uphold you,
With His sheep securely fold you;
God be with you till we meet again.
Till we meet, till we meet,
Till we meet at Jesus? feet;
Till we meet, till we meet,
God be with you till we meet again.
God be with you till we meet again;
Neath His wings protecting hide you;
Daily manna still provide you;
God be with you till we meet again.
God be with you till we meet again;
With the oil of joy anoint you;
Sacred ministries appoint you;
God be with you till we meet again.
God be with you till we meet again;
When life?s perils thick confound you;
Put His arms unfailing round you;

Of His promises remind you;
For life?s upper garner bind you;
God be with you till we meet again.
God be with you till we meet again;
Sicknesses and sorrows taking,
Never leaving or forsaking;
God be with you till we meet again.
God be with you till we meet again;
Keep love?s banner floating o?er you,
Strike death?s threatening wave before you;
God be with you till we meet again.
God be with you till we meet again;
Ended when for you earth?s story,
Israel?s chariot sweep to glory;
God be with you till we meet again.
Shayne i will always remember you as my cousin and my best friend. You knew just how to light up a room and when you were there the laughter never stopped. "In my heart is where i keep you friend"
love you shayne
Thanks for stepping forward when America needed you. To the family - Thank you for your contribution to our liberty and freedom. I'm sorry for your tremendous loss
MAY GOD WIPE AWAY ALL YOUR TEARS AND GIVE THE FAMILY THE PEACE AND FAITH TO GET THROUGH THIS TIME.
Shayne was a great kid, my cousin. Even as a toddler he was determined to do what he wanted to do. I will always remember babysitting him and his 2 brothers Justin and Billy and his sister Brandy. At 3 I taught him the lyrics to "Shooting Star" by Bad Company. That song will forever hold a place in my heart. In my heart Shayne died a hero and I will never again take my freedom for granted. Freedom is not really free.
Here is a picture of me and my baby nephew when he was little. Shayne was the most loveable boy you could ever know. There is unspeakable grief in my family. He grew up to be such a strong young man. My heart just aches with ineffable suffering. I love you Shaynie boy.
I did not know Shayne personally, but my son is a Marine so I know of him. May you find comfort in the Lord during this very difficult time.
My daughter and I will miss Shayne very much. We valued his friendship, he was a very special young man. He always had a smile on his beautiful face. He was one of those people who made you smile and laugh. My heart goes out to you. We are very sorry for your loss. Stephanie and I will remember him with lots of love.
May God bless you in a very special way, as He took a very special person from this world to be with Him. I thank God every day for men like your son who are willing to fight for our freedom and the freedom of oppressed nations. I know Shayne has made a difference in every life he has touched. God bless everyone in his family
Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as they
protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they
perform for us in our time of need. I ask this in the name of Jesus,
our Lord and Savior. Amen.
