    Not far from my house.

    Sending prayers for his loved ones, especially his girlfriend and unborn son.

    My thoughts are with you, your daughter and most assuredly their unborn child.

    RIP Shane, you will be missed so much!!! My daughter is Shane's girlfriend and they are expecting a baby boy in a month. She decided to change the name for him, his name will now be Shane Anthony Beasley. My daughter is not taking this well, so please keep her and Shane's family in your prayers. He was a wonderful man.
