I am a close friend of Shae's mother Tamra.
Shae's funeral was yesterday and it has made me feel compelled to respond to some of the comments made. I need this not only for my own realization and acceptance of what has happened but to hopefully remind people to think before they comment on situations like this in the future.
I wanted so much to tell Tamra about this comment section but I hesitated because of the negativity. There are so may comforting words about Shae & Brandon that would make her happy, but some have ruined the opporturnity for this to be a good thing. No matter what you are feeling, people need to be compassionate and only comment on the positive. Shae and Brandon's families only need to hear good things right now, there is plenty of frustration and grief already for them to deal with.
Tamra, my cousin (thanks Kala!)and I went shopping for clothes to bury Shae in. Her mother wanted one last time to buy her teenage daughter new clothes (we all know how important that is to a teenage girl). I'm sure if some people saw us shopping it would be just like seeing Brandon, his friends and his pastor together. We had a laugh or two just as they did. It was not that we were insensitive to what was happening or that we were not grieving, we were trying to make a horrible situation a little better for all of us. So, PLEASE, do not jump to conclusions in situations you are not personally involved in. Try to see the good, not something to gossip about. Even IF some of the negative comments were true this is not the time or the place for them. Kudos to Colt's little friends for the kind words, remember right now he does not need to hear any rumors or gossip, he loves his big sister and only wants to hear good things.
Myself being the mother of a daughter, it breaks my heart that my friend will never get to experience some of the joys of motherhood I have gotten to experience with my child. Tamra will never get to see Shae grow into a wonderful responsible adult, she will never get to help Shae plan her wedding, she will never get to feel the joy of seeing her daughter through pregnacy and birth and countless other wonderful experiences that only a mother and daughter can share.
I wish the adults that have commented negatively will stop and think about the influence they have on their childern and other children(as well as immature adults). We need to teach our children to be forgiving, understanding and rationally thinking people so hopefully they can grow up to be that as an adult. The world could possibly become a better place if we tried.
I would like to acknowledge Shae's big brother Patrick. He's the best big bother in the world! I was very moved by your words of Shae at her service yesterday. I love ya lots!! Tamra, Dave & Colt, I love you guys too, you have a great daughter & sister to remember for the rest of your lives. I hope EVERYONE can forget the past and think about what is best for the future.
Yes it is horrible that you will always have peopletrying to exploit things even a horrible situation like this. They need to listen when it was said if you cant say something nice then just keep your BIG MOUH SHUT!!! I am glad she has a friend like you and my prayers go out to you and both families during this horrible time. God Bless!

no one has bothered to mention anything good about Shae's father or step-mom. They are wonderful people who are just as hurt or not more than Shae's mom. If I ever had a problem I know who to call. The two nights I went over there her step-mom was in pieces and Shae's dad didn't know where to turn. They are WONDERFUL people and need support just as much as Shae's mom, brothers, Brandon and all Shae's friends. Please keep her father's side of the family in ya'lls prayers.

i am not going to sit here and argue with you. but dont tell me what i should do and not do.
i am taking up for brandon, cuz shae loved him && would have wanted everyone too ! so you really need too back off i put the eff word cause i am so pisssed that people wont get offf brandons case. mkay. so just back off and leavee me alone. cause you dont know crap !!
I understand you are upset over all this, it is a hard thing to deal with when something happens like this we all tend to lash out at one another. However you need to go back and re-read your posts, and mine. I have NEVER said 1 bad thing about Brandon, or Shea. I have only offered prayers and support to both families. All I mentioned to you was you can get your point acrossed better with out all the bad words you seem to like to use do much. I understand you are in pain, you are hurting and you need an out let for that pain. Maybe you need to speak to your parents about how you are feeling, or a school couslor, someone who will listen to you and help you get through this hard time for you. I am sorry for the pain you are feeling, I am praying for you and I hope you will learn how to better deal with loss and pain as you grow and mature a little bit. I am sure you are a great kid, you are just suffering right now. Bless you...

Threatening people is not going to bring this little girl back. I also think you have just put yourself in a sticky situation. If anything happens to this young man you are going to be the first person they come questioning. Violence is not going to help this horrible tradgedy at all. You need to seek counseling to help you in your grieving process.

This is so true. I have experienced the passing of close friends and family. The ones who have passed on do not want others grieving about them but rather accept it and move on. Yes it is tough but memories last a life time and those are what everyone needs to reflect on. The passing of a close friend/ family member is tough, especially if it is the first time an individual has had to deal with this sort of thing. Counselors are wonderful for things like this and I hope the parents of these grieving children will help them find peace with this. Shae would not want anyone arguing over who's fault it was, who did what to who, etc. I do not know any of these people but death is death and when it is your time to go, you go. Everyone deals with it differently and there is no right/wrong way to grieve. Do what is comfortable and what makes you feel better. If it means talking about it, do it. If you need to cry in private, do it. If you need to cry with friends or family, do it. Write a letter, do it. Does not matter, just get it out and do not keep those feelings inside you as they will eat you from the inside out and make it 1000 times worse.

Whoever the boy was he is not worth more than a nickel. He had no espect for anyone and Shae was warned. My husband and I are her "aunt and uncle" and are going through a hard time. Her father and step-mother tood it hard and they didn't find out until another member of the family close to Shae called to let them know. Shae was worth the world and has gone to a much better place than being with that guy who wasn't worth even a penny in my wallet. Prayer need to be given to the father, step-mother, and brother because they are the ones that really cared about Shae.
How can you say that the rest of her family didn't care about her. Did you know us all? I know that you don't because her big brother and her neices and nephews love her VERY much. And her mother is a great mother and Shae was very close to her. I was only lucky enough to have her in my life for 6 years but I love her too. We were her family, she was my childrens Aunt Shae Shae and you people need to remember that her family is reading everything written in these posts. BE RESPECTFUL!!! Regaurdless of fault the outcome isn't going to change and we have accepted that. I only speak for my self and my husband but we have no ill will toward Brandon. She loved him and we will respect her by not making life any harder than it will be for him. He will have to live with this the rest of his life and face God when it is his time. I will leave the judging up to Him.

Shae was a very beautiful girl. She always had positive things to say, always made my day so much brighter! The one thing that really brought me and Shae together was the fact that we both LOVED pink! And everytime i see pink i think of Shae! Brandon is an amazing guy too....weve kicked it a few times and had some pretty fun memories.....it wasnt his fault. These next few months are already going to be hard enough for him, dont throw things in his face and make it even harder, i know hes upset for what happened and if he could take it back he would.

I think that people need to remember the good things about her. People shouldn't be fighting, especially in such a public way. It's not the time nor place. Shae was a really good person. I rode the bus with her everyday I remember how on the bus there was a seat, it was "Shaes seat only". I remember her talking on the bus about how she wanted to get that nice car for her turning 16. She would have loved that car. Shae you will be truly missed. You are missed by a lot of people and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about you.

ok. this comment thing was posted a long time ago. Some of the things posted were hurtful and emotional and beautiful all in one. But we all have something in common. We live and we die. God just called Shae home early. And I know its EXTREMELY hard to deal with this type of situation but its the way of life. the only thing we can do know is celebrate her life by honoring her and keeping her in all of our hearts. we were bf's in middle school and id do anything to have her back in my life. but i know i will get to see her again. shes probably up in heaven lookin down at all of us and and smiling because she is at peace with the lord. and she doesn't wanna see us fighting and yelling at each other about brandon or her father or mother. she loved all of them with all of their heart. if she heard what some of u guys said shed probably personally chew ur butts out. shae dawn simmons had a beautiful smile, soul, heart, and personality. she had a love and passion for all that is good out there. and may she rest in peace. she is home resting now. <3

Shae was my very best friend. We spent every day together. Me, Shae, Katie, Brandon, Brett, and Patrick were all best friends. We all know that Shae loved Brandon with all of her heart, and Brandon loved Shae with all of his heart. You could see it in there eyes. I seen it everyday. What happened was an accident, Brandon still hurts to this day.. as we all do. It has almost been 3 years since Shae has been gone but we all still think about her and talk about her EVERYDAY!! I pray for everyone this has effected every night. It's not fair she died too young but the lord needed her more than we do. We all love you Shae!!! I still cant believe you are gone. Going from seeing your beautiful brown eyes everyday to knowing i will never see them again until the day god takes me home is hard. But you keep me going girl. You always did, always will. I love you more than words could ever define, but you already know that. You will always be my best friend, ALWAYS!!! The last thing we ever said to each other was "I love you, bye." as we always did. I will never forget your voice, LAUGH, smile, glowing eyes, soft hair, or your smell <3 You hold my heart in your pocket! I love you Shae Dawn Simmons <3
