    Just wanted to post this before we close up shop:


    "In his homily, Msgr. Lawrence read from a letter written by a stranger to Shane, after his body was found.

    "In a world of uncertainty, anger, confusion and greed," the man wrote, "you unknowingly created a moment of love and solidarity for so many. People loved a little more, sympathized a little more. We valued and cherished each other a little more.

    "Nothing will ever take away the sadness but know that your life had purpose for me and for so many . . . You changed us. You reminded us how to take care of each other."

    Shane's loved ones also showed us how to care for each other. Over 38 days, the city got to see what a strong, faithful, loyal and loving family looks like. They drew people to them, just as I know so many other good families in the city would draw us to them if we knew their hurt."
