    David, I have done business at McKenzie Jewelers for years. And, although I never had the opportunity to meet Shane, I have no doubt that he was as much a pleasure to meet and to do business with as I have always found you to be. I am so very sorry that you and your wife have to suffer such a loss. There are no words that could possibly offer comfort. I just pray you’ll find some comfort in knowing members of the community, even those of us not well known by you, are keeping each of you and your family members in our prayers. May God bless and hold you in His loving presence and peace.

    Best wishes,
