Terence McShane Obituary

The life of Terence McShane, so full and so brief, could be measured by his friendships. There were the buddies from Sts. Cyril and Methodius parish, St. Anthony's High School, lifeguarding, Siena College, rugby, his decade as a New York police officer, and the two years he spent as a city firefighter.

To the McShane Family:
The angels sang Amazing Grace, The Lord came down and touched your face, He held your hand and whispered low, "Come with me Terence, it's time to go." The Gates of Heaven opened wide, With your Father, and Aunt Margaret side by side. A special guest was on his way, The day they took Terence McShane away.

This atrocity was a world wide abomination and we send our deepest sympathy to all our friends affected by this terrorist act.
