Chris, Destinee, Perry, Family and Friends: My heart is broken... No words I write could ever say, how sad and empty I feel today. Words cannot suffice to express the heartfelt sorrow that I feel for the passing of your beautiful Shalin. I cannot even begin to understand or imagine what you're going through right now. Shalin was such a loving, smart, kind, amazingly talented, intelligent, well behaved, funny and beautiful soul who will be terribly missed but never forgotten. He was a bright young man that touched so many lives in his short 15 years. He was loved by all that knew him and will be cherished in our memories forever. May the love and mercy of our Lord be bestowed upon you and your family during this most difficult and unfortunate time. I pray that God will grant you the serenity and peace that you need to get through this. Stay strong and ALWAYS remember, I am here for you always and forever.
Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on, and cherished memories never fade because a loved one's gone. Those we love can never be more than a thought apart. For as long as there is a memory, they'll live on in our hearts.
Love to all, Sherilyn, Marty and Ben Leka -
