  2. Two beautiful families destroyed. God amazing how just a second of not being in control can destroy so many lifes forever To know Manaolanalani since she was a 6 year old girl, she had a kiddy crush on my son and her mom took them to mcdonald’s for a kiddy date Manaolanalani grew up to be a respectful girl to her elder’s always calling me Aunty no matter how many years passed, God Be with her mom and siblings !!! Shane is family to family this is all just heart wrenching. My son and him worked on the disney project on Oahu, the last job at Disney was two months ago Not every one who face’s this kind of horror is monsters. These two people was loved by many. I will not deny I admired Mamaolanalai that would be adding evil to evil, this is horrorable enough and I know my son admired Shane. Jesus be with all involve and rock them gently in your loving arm’s with comfort, peace and understanding to your divine plan. May we all learn the lesson’s Shane’s life has left behind to find the wisdom we all seek so we all can move forward with compassion, peace and understanding giving his life honor instead of bitterness R.I.P. Shane you are loved by many and Manaolanalai may the Lord comfort you through this Hell. I always tell people don’t play with satan in any form, cause he will bite with just a little slip of not being in control. This can happen to anyone of us. That’s why God made night ( darkness ) and day ( Light ) to show us how much good and evil lurk’s this world. We are just gains of sand in a spiritual plan, wether good or evil
