To the Family of Shane Brown from Randy & Therese McCormick. Regrettably, we were unable to attend the remembrance for Shane. However, please know that you are all in our prayers. I have many fond memories of Shane as one of my students at CHS - in particular that of his Mr. CHS performances. I had been in contact recently with Shane as we discussed a purchase of a SxS. He was the consummate professional while offering his wisdom as we contemplated our purchase. He had such a way to put people at ease with his great smile and fun sense of humor. Rest in peace, Shane.
