LanadoHey Devaughn, Lanado here, a former schoolmate at BHTC, sorry to here of the lost of your brother, Shantz. I gather from remarks posted he was a lot like you, a fun person to be around who appreciate life and those around him, he has left an indelible impression with those he has encountered and their lives are richer for it. May Lord continue to bless you and your family.

pinkdiamondIt's a tru sayin that Yesterday is history, today is a gift and Tomorrow is a mystery! but my dear freind shantz never got to now what his mystery for a next day would be.

Shantz was a good friend of mines i can still remeber clearly the bright smile he always had on his face! A smile that money couldnt even buy. He was such a happy person and always full of energy.

I no some people have entrapped in thier minds that he was so young, but let this be an example to the young generation out there we never no when it will be our time,no matter how old or young no ones nows.

On behalf of the students, teachers, principal and supporting staff of the Harbour island all age school and the community of harbour island we would like to send out our condolesence to his family in this time grievement and sorrow.


don't cry for him cause he wouldn't want us to! he would want us to be happy that now he is free from pain!

Shantz was a class mate of mine, one that i will never for get. When Shantz was not in school or not around it was like now, sad moments. He was one you can depend on to always have smiling faces on and joyful moments. When i heard that he had died, i couldn't believe it. I just spoke to his brother and asked him how he was doing. On behalf of:
We would truly like to say that Shantz was one of our best classmates and that we we miss him.
We would like to say to his family that life has to go on and that Shantz is in a better place than all of us, so if we wan't to see him again we would have to give our lifes to the Lord

Shantz we miss you!

fabuloustinySad, Sad, Sad! I found out about Shantz's death while watching the Community page on Channel 13, it didn't really click that was him until I saw it the second time around.

Even though he wasn't a classmate, I got to know Shantz, and I must say he was a trickster. Always smiling, joking and on the go, this was he found out he had Cancer yet he still kept his head up, and looked out for brighter days.

God does have a unique plan that Man should never question, however, we cannot help but to ask because the loss is so great and the pain of never being able to talk to that individual unbearable.

Rest In Peace Shantz, when you see Ms. Bishop tell her "Hi".

I extend a my deepest sympathy to Shantz's family and friends. Know that he is in a better place, no more suffering and pain.

May God strenghten you all!
