Several of us went to Sedona and visited an aura reader. An aura is the human energy field emanating from each of us. See Shane's aura: (notice his face in the center)

Shane was a follower of Mahatma Gandhi. Ahimsa (Do no harm, non violence.) Watch the movie “Gandhi”, basically how one person can change the conflict between nations without one bullet being fired. Of course, one bullet eventually was fired and made Gandhi a martyr.

While studying at Cerro Coso College, he took a trip to a rural village in Mexico with Professor Janet Westbrook to deliver food and supplies. Whil on the trip, he had an “awakening”. When he returned home, he told his mother, … “I had a revelation. We are all one. We all come from the same God Source”. He never forgot that experience.


From Shane ...........


As I sit in Heaven

and watch you everyday,

I try to let you know with signs

I never went away.

I hear when you're laughing,

and watch you as you sleep,

I even place my arms around you,

to calm you as you weep.

I see you wish the days away,

begging to have me home.

So I try to send you signs,

so you know you're not alone.

Don't feel guilty that you have

life that was denied to me.

Heaven is truly beautiful,

just you wait and see.

So live your life, laugh again,

enjoy yourself, be free.

Then, I know with every breath you take,

You'll be taking one for me. (Kristone #713)



To Shane

From Shelby and Susan........(sister and mom)


“Shane is missing in me.” We usually say in English, “I miss you”. But, courtesy of Alan Wolfelt, well-known grief counselor, the French say, “You are missing in me.” There is such a hole to fill which you can't fill with things...... only through loving memories and sharing them.


Thank you Shane, for leaving us with so many wonderful memories so we can continuously fill our emptiness with LOVE.


The well-known and experienced aura reader said, “Oh my, I want an aura like yours. What are you doing to have an aura like this? Your aura shows peace, harmony, teacher, spiritual perceptive, sensitive, creative, artistic, longing, softness, generosity of life, imaginative, intuitive, rest, introvert, loving, healing heart, faithful, solitude, truth, wise, reserved. You are an excellent problem solver.” Shane shrugged his shoulders.When she found out that Shane had spent so much time in the mountains alone, she said “That is it, you find your God in nature. Shane smiled.

Shane found Peace and Comfort in nature. He would go there when he needed answers from his higher power. He walked the walk (nature an mountains), he talked the talk (with humor and wisdom).
