My True Love...Shayne Lynn Hanna Aust 23rd, 1977-Febuary 16,2009
by Kari Wood
Where to start? Shayne and I met through mutual friends, I fell in love with him right on the spot. He was 9 years younger than me, so I was very sure he wouldn't take a second look at me. It took him a while, but eventually he asked me out for a date.
From that day on, we were inseparable. I loved how I felt when I was with him. Two weeks after we had been together, he bought me a ring. It was a "promise to promise" ring. Shayne made me feel so young, we had such an innocent love together. Our relationship was not an easy one, we both had issues, however we stuck by each other, never once did I question how much he loved me. I could see it in his eyes everytime I looked at him.
I loved him so very much and I am very sure I will never love another man the way I loved him. This past year has been the worst year of my life, I have missed him so, sometimes I believe he was the only person who could look past my flaws and love me for who he saw inside.
It's almost been a year now, and these past few weeks have been very hard. I don't want to look ahead, I don't want to look behind, cause if I do that, it makes it too real. I loved him so much! He has made me a better woman, when he was alive and also in his death. Shayne, you died too young....I know you will be waiting for me on the other side.
Rest well, my love! I love you so much!
