I met Shauna several years ago at Chadds. And we had some good times together. I will miss her so. My prayers are with you all.

Shayna was a beautiful, smart, kind and special girl. She always smiled no matter what situation she may have been experiencing. It breaks my heart she had to leave us while she was so so young. It makes my heart so happy to know she is in the arms of her grandmother whom she loved most in life. God will always have you now Shayna and no more worries!!

Shayna was part of my first class at Purvis High School. That class will always be special to me. Anytime anything happens to one of my students, I feel like a part of me is lessened. Shayna was a bright and intelligent young girl. She was taken too soon from this life. I can only hope that Shayna’s family can take some comfort in knowing she was loved by so many. I loved her.

My heart is torn to pieces. Shayna was like a breath of fresh air everytime I saw her. She always made me laugh with that dry sense of humor of hers. I know she is at peace with our maker. The love she so longed for, the stability she needed, all the desires she had...have been granted her. I cry for selfish reasons. I will miss her bubbly personality and her friendship. However, I rejoice with the angels...because what would heaven be like without people like Shayna? Rest high my love, no more tears, no more struggles, no more worries...God speed your soul. I love you.
