Memorial website in the memory of your loved one

This memorial website was created for our angel Shane Nicholas Romanishan

I would like to thank everyone who takes the time to view tHis site..some of u check for updates each month..that means the world to us!!

Shane Romanishan, One day old, passed away at Easton Hospital on January 7, 2005. His immediate family consists of a big sister, Haley and parents Kelly Mueller-Romanishan and Nicholas Romanishan

I have a very happy update for everyone..after almost 4 years of fighting things r finally progressing. The Department of State informed me that the Doctor in question has either turned in or has had his obstretrics license taken away. Unfortunatly he can still treat women but thankfully he will never touch another innocent child again..


Autopsy results came back stating "natural death" Cardiac Arrest due to aspiration. The Department of State is currently investigating one of the doctors involved in the delivery.

Thank you everyone for the outstanding amount of support and donations we have received. Tons of thoughtful cards came rolling in, filling our mailbox for weeks. Special thanks to Harmony Firehouse and the Lion's Club..I don't know what we would have done without them! They are truly living, breathing, walking angels.

This web site was created with a lot of love and numerous tears

Dear Friend
Author unknown

Go ahead and mention my child, the one that died, you know.

Don't worry about hurting me further, the depth of my pain doesn't show.

Don't worry about making me cry, I'm already crying inside.

Help me to heal by releasing the tears that I'm trying to hide.

I'm hurt when you just keep silent, pretending she didn't exist.

I'd rather you'd mention my child, knowing that she has been missed.

You asked me how I'm doing, I say "pretty good" or "fine",

but healing is something on-going, I feel like it will take a lifetime.

The mention of my child's name
Author unknown

"The mention of my child's name
May bring tears to my eyes,
But it never fails to bring
Music to my ears.

If you are really my friend,
Let me hear the beautiful music of her name.
It soothes my broken heart
And sings to my soul."

Please, don't ask me
Author: Rita Moran

Please, don't ask me if I'm over it yet
I'll never be over it
Please, don't tell me she's in a better place
She isn't with me
Please, don't say at least she isn't suffering
I haven't come to terms with why she had to suffer at all
Please, don't tell me you know how I feel
Unless you have lost a child
Please, don't ask me if I feel better
Bereavement isn't a condition that clears up
Please, don't tell me at least you had her for so many years
What year would you choose for your child to die?
Please, don't tell me God never gives us more than we can bear
Please, just tell me you are sorry
Please, just say you remember my child, if you do
Please, just let me talk about my child
Please, mention my child's name
Please, just let me cry.

Death Is

Death is nothing at all.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
I am I, and you are you.

Whatever we were to each other, that we still are.
Call me by my old familiar name,
speak to me in the easy way which you always used.
Put no difference in your tone,
with no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was,
let it be spoken without effort, without the trace of a shadow on it.

Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was; there is unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?

Ashes to to Dust
Little Shane is here
only because he must.

He just couldn't handle it
God wanted him safe
to be next to him
is his tiny place.

Like the one in my heart
that he will always hold
for sweet little Shane
died when not very old.

Time can't take from me,
This horrible, painful memory.
It is constantly there, to remind,
My little man I'll never find.

You were taken from me too soon.
The nights are darkened without a moon.
The stars keep falling from above,
Without you here for me to love.

I wake myself up at night,
For fate wasn't dealt to me right.
You were suposed to be with me,
Not somewhere I can't be.

Time has been so unfair.
I wish that I didn't care.
Loving you causes pain,
Because I know I'll never see you again.

Please tell me that you're happier now,
And I'll get through the pain somehow.
Maybe time will heal the scars,
And the sky will again fill with stars

>I wrote your name on a piece of paper,
>but by accident threw it away.
>I wrote your name on my hand,
>but it washed away.
>I wrote your name in the sand,
>but the waves whispered it away.
>I wrote your name in my heart,
>and forever it will stay.

Little Did We Know

Little did we know that morning

that god would call your name.

In life we loved you dearly

In death we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you

you did not go alone

For part of us went with you

The day God called you home.

You left us peaceful memories

your love is still our guide.

And though we cannot see you

You are always by our side.

Our family chain is broken

And nothing seems the same.

But as God calls us one by one

The chain will link again.



My Mom is a Survivor

My Mom is a survivor,
or so I've heard it said.
But I can hear her crying at night
when all others are in bed.

I watch her lay awake at night
and go to hold her hand.
She doesn't know I'm with her
to help her understand.

But like the sands on the beach
that never wash away . . .
I watch over my surviving mom,
who thinks of me each day.

She wears a smile for others . . .
a smile of disguise!
But through Heaven's door I see
tears flowing from her eyes.

My mom tries to cope with death
to keep my memory alive.
But anyone who knows her knows
it is her way to survive.

As I watch over my surviving mom
through Heaven's open door . . .
I try to tell her that angels
protect me forevermore.

I know that doesn't help her . . .
or ease the burden she bears.
So if you get a chance, go visit her . . .
and show her that you care.

For no matter what she says . . .
no matter what she feels.
My surviving mom has a broken heart
that time won't ever heal
