I worked with Shane at FMC and just heard today of his death. He was an excellent nurse . He was caring of his patients and frequently gave them money and food. He often spoke of his love for his wife and children. God Bless!! Dr Lauren Mcdonald , March 9, 2018 Sorry for your loss. I only met Shane twice. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Shana, Tim, Zach & Jalyn Owens, March 6, 2018 I am a coworker of Shane. I never met him in person but spoke with him on a training call. He had a way to instantly connect with you. He made a big impression on me with just our brief training. He will be truly missed. I am so sorry for your loss and I am praying for peace and an abundance of love for your family.

We were partnered during the relief efforts for Hurricane Harvey victims, and even in such a stressful time, he was hard-working, reliable, and all-around an uplifting individual. Shane taught me how to stay calm and productive during intense situations, and our short encounter played a significant role in my life and the way I handle stress. My condolences to his family and friends. Sterling Taylor, March 5, 2018 Oh nikki, I am so sorry to hear this. I really enjoyed seeing your posts of him, you, and your boys enjoying your outings, baseball, and trips back to South Dakota. My heart hurts for you dear friend, and I wish to hug you through our distance. But, his smile in your photos has always made me smile, too. It was infectious:) Shelly, March 5, 2018 You have left a pain and a whole in our hearts that can't be filled. You will forever remain in our hearts. Your work on this earth is over.
