In loving honour of Shonethan Spencer

Hi, we are Nadine & Winston & Family,

We would like to thank EVERYONE for helping us to ACHIEVE with UNBELIEVABLE success our 1st Goal!!! You are all angels within our hearts ❤️❤️ ❤️

We are writing to you today to honour the beautiful memory yet devastating loss of our son, Shonethan Spencer. Shonethan is one of 7 of my children. Not only was Shonethan food OUR souls. He also played a CRITICAL financial, almost paternal role - in
contributing to our daily, monthly and yearly - household expenses. We are hoping that this final phase of this GoFundMe campaign,
will not only help pay Shonethan's expenses, but also the basic essentials that he once provided to his 6 siblings for the next few months in Shonethan's absence. Though no amount of money can replace the hole in our hearts as a result of Shonethan's passing. There is no doubt
that without the GoFundMe system along with your donations, our family would belts belong the pain of losing such a special young man in my son. This outpouring of support, both emotionally and financially has been a God send. AGAIN, thank you for all the kind words and contributions. WE CAN'T have made it without ALL OF YOU


I gave birth to a beautiful 8lb baby boy July 9th 1999 who was taken from us tragically in the blink of an eye on June 5th 2021. The world will never be the same because of how he showed up wile he was here and now because he no longer is.


I said “I love you, make sure you stay safe”. He said “Yes mom, I love you”. I had no idea that I would never hear his voice, see his smile or see him alive again. My heart and my family's hearts are crushed at the loss of this phenomenal soul. He went to a cottage for a weekend of "summer kick-off" fun. On the first night up north, and two others went out on the water where Shonethan and another young man (RIP) tragically drowned. Of three that went out on the water, there was one fortunate survivor.


To describe in full the talent, passion, ambition, yet peaceful energy that was Shonethan is truly impossible. He was not just my son, he was my heartbeat. He was one of the most kind hearted souls. If you ever needed anything, Shonethan was your guy. He was the kind of man that would always put his siblings, parents and friends first and give even if it was his last of anything. Shonethan had a smile that shone so big it would brighten everyone's day and will never be forgotten. His humble and generous soul is one of a kind. He always had a calm & strong head on his shoulders, never letting the insignificant things bring him down.


Though our beloved son, brother & friend is gone much too soon. We are comforted to know and trust that God has selected Shonethan to help Him in a greater capacity.


Our family has been devastated and overwhelmed in unimaginable ways. We wish this pain on no family. As a result, this fundraiser has been created to help assist with the sudden large expenses associated with the financial costs required to lay him to rest. Therefore, we humbly request all those reading this memorial to donate at your earliest convienience - whatever you can afford - to help our family through this very diificult time.


Thank you in advance for your kind words, sentiments and messages. We are so very grateful for each and every donation - of  any amount.Every dollar will truly help our family during this very difficult time. We are very close to reaching our goal - a goal that would be unachievable without EACH and EVERYONE of you. ❤️❤️❤️


In honour and celebration of Shonethan, we - the family and friends - thank you in advance.


Blessings to all.
