#7 Shane Michael........... it's in the eyes

Shane....I have always loved that name, every person I ever met with that name had the best eyes....... I swore when I had a son , he would have to have that name.  I did.  My son  was sick from birth, with big ole beautiful blue eyes , like his sister's.  She prayed for that color.  He was given only 18 hours to live and survived 23 months and a few hours. He was the best.  I am not going to go into much detail here as I could probably write a book about him.  But i would say........ he is the only person in my life who truly loved and trusted those that cared for him with all of his huge heart. He was tough, brave, sweet and forgiving to everyone he met.  In his roughest hours...... he still had a smile for you, even if it were just the sparkle you saw in his eyes when you walked into the room.  

We donated his eyes when he died, along with some other organs, but his eyes were special, they made 2 other children see the world more clearly.  I still have the letter.

6 years ago my daughter, Rachel, gave birth to a son and gave him a 4th name in order to include "Shane" who was her baby brother that we lost 23 years ago.  Its been a long time.

Yesterday, my estranged daughter gave birth to a little boy with the middle name of , "Shane."  I don't know if I will ever meet him, but I hope to one day, I am sure he has beautiful eyes. 

Shanes favorite song....... if you knew him you knew this CD we played it for him all the time so he could dance on his sore legs before he could walk.......
