The Good News is that our son is no longer in pain!!! Glory to our Healer who does all things well! Shayne was an organ donor! It was beyond sad to see Shayne walk with such excruciating agony!! He is running, in Jesus victory- now and always! We were married 14 fabulous year when our mighty God shared our dream come true child- with us!! We prayed and trusted in Gods Holy Word!!

Glorious is Jesus sweetest name!!! Our bestest Shayne was so fun to be with!!! We literally took him everywhere with us for his childhood days!! Shayne would say Where are we going for our anniversary!! When our redeemer directed me into entertainment business Shayne was on the journey with us!! He truly enjoyed people- even as a small child!! Shayne was so appreciative of the littlest things!! We surely should have praise to our King of Glory for everything he allows us to have! The old song says, count your blessings, name them one by one and it will surprise you what the Lord has done! When Shayne David started school, it was hard for Mommy to let him go! So, I did not sing as much and went to school, too!!!!!!! I helped with each little precious child! Shayne was so kind to the popular and unpopular students throughout all his years of education! The honor goes to our Master for teaching Shayne that favoritism has heartache that can last a lifetime! Shayne was in every type of event and program!! He really liked sports and was very involved even though one leg was shorter than the other!! The Lord helped Shayne so amazingly for that is Who He Is! Shayne was able to touch loads of lives along that pathway!! He was ASB President during high school. The Lords doing! Shayne very much enjoyed school for God put others in his heart!!!!!!! Jennifer- Shayne loved you deeply always!! Shayne was so enamored with basketball! His desire was to play professionally. Even though it was painful he continued during most of his years in school!

I pray their memories will be delightful with their incredible Daddy!! There were such outstanding times of talks, laughter and closeness!! Shayne missed few of their school events, if any. Shayne will not have to cry over them anymore. Shayne was such a hard worker!! He had a sensational example in his very own Father!! He had a variety of jobs after school years. He then learned the delivery service of legal papers. A real jewel of a gal, Myrna Peters, taught Shayne this business. He was off and running!!

We must not let time pass us by for we need to be telling those we come in contact with that we love them most of all, that the Lord Jesus Christ died for them on that ole rugged Cross. It can much more than you realize when you uplift another soul by giving them a kind word! Most folks do not realize that they are fearfully and wonderfully made! The Joy you receive will be more than you can comprehend! Open your mouth, the Bible says, and God will fill it! Give His promises a try!! Jesus cannot fail you as people will! When you tell Jesus your troubles He will not tell anyone! What a good deal! Then, on top of that, he casts your sins into the deepest sea, never to be remembered! The Bible states, when you ask Him into your heart that He takes your sins as far as East from West! Does not get any better than that! You will run swiftly with amazing strength as you lean on Jesus as He is strong! Isaiah 40:31. You know, hugs are in the Bible so give them out a lot, too! A smile will make others smile back!!

So full of laughter!! Thank you, dear Lord!!!! The Lord gave me another thought where you might feel like giving an offering in remembering our dear-heart, Shayne David!! The Drean Center Church, of Spokane is Pastored by a precious pair, Dave and Alice Darroch!! Every service is different for they strive to let the Lord direct the way Church is run! There are always testimonies of what Jesus does in our lives! Wowsers! Think of that! There is always time made for anyone to ask Jesus into their lives! If you need help in some way you might visit! Your hard-earned money will go to help heal broken lives and change them, for Gods Glory!! This is real Church where you will experience the Holy Spirit! Your life could be changed and made new! There is music that lifts up Jesuss name! We are overcomers by the blood of the Lamb and word of our testimony!!!!!!!!!Last, but not least, another Ministry you might consider in Prayer, to give to in Shayne David McCarthys memory is the CBN Broadcasting Network or better known as 700 Club. This is a place that reaches the whole world with the Gospel of Christ, and tells that OUR REDEEMER STILL LIVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They feed millions of hurting souls! They build homes and give free surgeries! They put people to work so they have pride and not just a hand-out!! They are already there when these horrid disasters occur!!

Sincerely think they will use your funds wisely, for helping where needed in most countries of our big God made world !!!!!!!! Thank you, each and every one, for we are magnifying our wondrous Savior for his momentary peace that cannot be explained!! Our Strong Tower never changes! By the way, Jesus is coming, again!! Time is Valuable! Jesus Christ paid a great price on the Cross for You! You need not fear for He will make a way where there is no way! You are in the hollow of His hand!! This kind of peace and joy no man can give you or anything can give you! You will not wake up with a hang-over with his joy! Even in sorrow he is with You! It is a never-ending story! Gods Word is still true and for today!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, indeed, we miss the BRIGHT LIGHT Shayne brought to us and many more!! We cannot question Gods Will, for He knows what is best for You as well!!

He was at rest when the Lord took Shayne home!!!!! Truest thanks to the comfort from Tim Cihal, and sweetie Crystal Weaver, at Fairmount Memorial. Jesus Bless you both and your treasured loved-ones!!!! There will be a Glorious stone honoring Shayne David in months to come, Lord willing!! Look for that and be Blessed!! Treat others as you would like to be treated for Jesus Christ GloryAlone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I Corinthians 2:9 Eye that hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither has it entered into the heart of man the things God had prepared for those that love him! Shayne was told continually how loved he was! He told us that too. He would be playing and say, I love you mommy! He gave hugs freely and in front of anyone! He was always hugging someone!
