View Full Version : Lcpl. Shane Lee Goldman

I have been away from the board for some time due to major illness, complications and multiple left handed doctors! For this reason I have missed almost a year in posting a memorial for a surrogate son, Lcpl. Shane Lee Goldman.
Please allow me the honor and priveledge to post him among his brother Marines.
One of the proudest accomplishments he ever achieved was earning this title and learning it's value.
Shane's father, seperated from his mother, moved to St. Croix being a Former Marine as well, so he not only lost a true son, but a Brother in Arms as well. I still grieve for George "Scooter" Goldman. He and I have been brothers for to many years to remember.
I too lost a son and a Brother. One of Shane's first remarks out of Boot to me was; "You aren't my uncle any more! We're Brothers now!" I am in no way blood relations to Shane. But I have been 'Uncle Mike' since he could talk. I never realized burying our kids in our shadows would be so hard!
Watch over them Chesy, where ever y'all are!

Rest in Peace

When we have done all the work we were sent to Earth to do, We are allowed to shed our body, which imprisons our soul like a cocoon encloses the future butterfly;
And when the time is right, we can let go of it and we will be free of pain, free of fears and worries, free as a very beautiful butterfly returning home to God.

God Bless
