Dear Mr. and Mrs. Gandee,
My mother was born and raised in a little town right outside of Charleston. I have the fondest memories of my visits to see my Mamaw and Papaw (nobody in the DC metro area would ever know, that's what we call our grandparents :) I was always so insulted by the ignorant comments people would make about WVA...they had no idea what a wonderful, peaceful place "WEST BY-GOD VIRGINIA" really was. When I first heard that Buckwild would be set outside of Charleston, I have to admit - I was concerned the reflection would be that of the ignorant stereotype.-but I only had to watch it ONCE...Shain touched my heart the first time I saw his smile light the screen up. He reminded me so much of the wonderful, humble, caring folks that I had encountered on each visit "down home" to see my family. There is something to be said about someone that has the ability to make EVERYONE he encounters (albeit on screen, in person or in passing) have an instant smile and a laugh. I would literally run home, lose the work suit and sit down to eat dinner and watch - just to be taken back to those old country roads I have missed so much.
Both of you remind me so much of my parents and aunts and uncles. Good People, Good Parents....who loved your children more than yourself.
The negative media that the show received was ridiculous...because just as the Charlamagne said on the final show - it is because of Shain and this show that people can finally see...just how wild and wonderful WVA is.-even if it is at times....just a little BUCKWILD. :)I pray your hearts find contentment in knowing that while all blessings and miracles cant last forever...you were blessed with a man who changed the perception, allowed people to open up their minds and hearts and shut their mouths....he made it very clear - he loved his family and he loved to go muddin. At least, he was able to take the ride to heaven doing just that. I pray for you and know in my heart, you will find peace.

I pray to this day that god is with Loretta n Dale, as well as the entire Gandee family. I could never fathom the pain of loosing a beautiful, glowing, all around kind hearted son. He made my nights a whole hell of a lot better thru out the month of January and I am so thankful that the world, including me got to witness such a great person. There is no question in my mind that Shain is in heaven hoping that we all quit bein so sad, he would want us to get in our pickups and go raise some hell for him. I never knew someone could touch my life like this when I didn't even know them personally but that just goes to show what an amazing person he was. God has a plan for us all, and I strongly believe he made sure the world got to know Shain before he brought him home to heaven. I think we all can breathe knowing Shain passed away doing what he loved and having fun.

My prayers are with you Gandee family.

I first found out yesterday about his death when I googled the buckwild show wanting to know more about the upcoming new season 2. I want to send my condolences and blessings to his immediate family and close friends. I remember after first season ended I drove up through west virginia and found the swimmin hole location under the bridge near the big smoker as shain called it...power plant. I drove around charleston and scotts depot listening to the "doin my thing" by kristian b. the dump truck pool party song. I even found the house the girls lived in on Beechwood St. at opening of 1st season. I have many memories of my trip up to west virginia and the 1st season of buckwild and shain was the show...i will miss him and but he will always to me be alive in a special place...that alone drive u can take in the state of west virginia...when u see the mountains, trees, rivers, sunrises and sunsets...shain is and forever will be there....his smile, his talk, his jokin around, his love for outdoors...shain is now part of the spirit of west virginia and when ur drivin in the mountains of the state at sunset smile and think if shain his spirit might just smile back and touch your soul. God Bless always and forever.

May God Bless Shain's family and friends. I was a huge fan of Buckwild - I was hooked after watching it for 5 minutes - looked forward to Thursday nights. Shain was one of a kind. Seemed like a truly genuine and caring person that loved life. If I had a son I would have been proud if he was anything like you. You will be greatly missed!!

To the Gandee family, I am truly sorry to hear of your son's untimely departure. Although I did not have the privledge to personally meet him, I watch his show with my children and was very intrigued by his sense of self. He was such an inspiration, he taught me to keep life 'light', love those who treat you good, forget those that don't and never forget who you are. I am a mother of two, and 8 year old boy and 5 year old girl and I could not imagine the pain that your family is enduring. I extend to you my deepest sypathy. Please know that your son touch so many lives with his honesty and positivity. I recently lost my mother to breast cancer, so I know what your feeling. I hope the memories get your through the dark days ahead and the love you shared with Shain provides the warmth in your hearts to keep your days bright.

He's in Heaven now and wants you to carry on.

I did not know Shain personally but like many other fans, he entertained and inspired me. I have a very stressful life along with serious health problems; I am often too serious and rarely laugh at anything. Shain's carefree nature along with his determination to live his life the way he wanted and not allow others to negatively influence him helped me to change. He has inspired me to look at life with new vision, allow myself to "let loose" and stop being so uptight all the time. I imagine he touched a lot of people in his short life. May he rest in peace.

I only know Shain from watching the show but I could see that he was a person who never had a bad thing to say about anyone and it seemed like everyone LOVED him. I wish I could have met him in person cause he seemed like the kind of person I would love to hang around. He really knew how to have a good time and show everyone else a good time. I wish I could be more like him!!!! I am from the suburbs of Philly PA. I am 42 years old,married with 3 kids. We all watched and loved the show because of Shain. I just want to say to the family that I am so sorry for your loss. It is a big loss to me and my family also even though we only watched him on the show.

Shain lit up the show with his love of life and his friendly, beautiful smile and sounding voice! He was a man's man with a love of woman, hunting and daredevil nature! I want to extend my deepest condolences to his parents because the love between the three of you was so obvious to the viewers and want you to know that few parents are blessed with the kind of love Shain expressed to you both just with the look in his eye and lilt in his voice when he spoke to you guys! I am so deeply sorry you have lost him, it is such a tragedy to lose someone who makes life just a better place to be every time you are with him! I cried for days over his loss! I am the mother of three and cannot even begin to know what it is liken to lose a child! But your faith in our lord will give you the strength you need to get through this! And you know he will b waiting for you with open arms!

As a full time worker, mother of two, stepmother of one, and wife, I barely have time for television, but Shain's love of life, family, and friends drew me into the Buckwild series. My stepdaughter watched it faithfully and I often found myself wandering into the family room to see what neat idea or stunt Shain was coming up with. I know there was a lot of controversy and criticism over the show, but I have to say that I was actually in awe of the family values that were displayed in the Gandee family. I loved that they openly talked about going to church together, and my hearted melted during the episode that Shain made Gandee Candy with the family. West Virginia should be proud to Shain one of its own, and know that it's so refreshing to see kids out having a good time without the distraction of modern technology. All those kids are creative, fun-loving and embrace the world they live in. As a parent, my heart breaks for the Gandee family and friends. It must feel odd to have so many strangers sending you well-wishes, but take comfort in knowing that Shain touched so many lives just by being Shain. My prayers are with you all!

I just wanted to give my condolences. Although I did not know him personally, I really enjoyed his "free spirit" on the tv show. He seemed to have an amazing ability to live each day to the fullest doing anything he wanted, and he seemed like he had such a sweet down to earth personality. Just wanted you to know that I will miss him and my prayers are with his family. Thank you for allowing us as the "public" to get a sneak peak at such an amazing person.

With so much life to live both our families grieve at this time. But I wanted you to know you are in our prayers and we know how you feel. We will miss our child until we are with her but carry her sweet memory with us everyday. I hope the same for you. From a mom who watched your son and saw a lot of him in my own. Bless your family.

When I first started watching the show he was on, he drew me in like a magnet. There was something about him, something special, that made me feel like I knew him. He was a fun loving, warm hearted person that loved life and it really showed! I have never felt such loss over a person I have never met before which really surprised me. I like to think that this is not goodbye, but a "To be continued in Heaven" type of thing. I am sorry that he didn't have more time here with his friends and family and I pray that those he has touched find peace with his untimely passing. Rest in Peace, Shain. Go ahead and scout out the best mudholes in Heaven and I'll meet you there :)

~ Shain was a amazing guy, that changed millions of peoples lifes. He showed his true side on tv and didn't fake. The twinkls I his eyes, the happy laugh and signature smile could make a persons heart melt in a second. He had the country look, talk and he just showed that he was a true west virginian . Even though i never got to meet him, I can see that he was a great guy with a good heart. I wouldve loved to met him but I know he's in a better place gettin his trick or treat on and getting some good candy, not only that but rammin his truck in the best mud holes ever. and when I'm gone then I might be able to be with him. <3><3>

Shain reminded me of my friend so much because he was kind,sweet fun,loving and a good hearted jus like Shain. My deepest sympathy to the family. R.I.P Shain. You will be missed.

I could just tell that he was a kind, gentle, and loving person....a real free spirit. I was truly impressed with his kind heart and the respect that he showed to everyone. You could really see the love he had for his family and that he was raised right. He had a smile that seemed to light up ever room that he walked into. The world truly has lost a great person.

Dale & Loretta Gandee,

Words cannot express how sorry I am for what's happened. First off I wanna say you both did a fine job at raising Shain! I wasn't lucky enough to meet him but I can say watching the show I was proud to know how real he was about the way he was brought up. I'm close to WV and coming from a small town where half of the area does enjoy the same things he expressed on the show the simple things a little dirt camo and some deer meat :) One thing I watched recently was Shain on Jimmy Fallon and I just smiled the whole time esp when he pulled out some of the canned deer meat. He really was one of a kind! He made me proud bc how real he was it was just plain to see what you see is what you get with him.Just a good ole boy. Y'all are in my prayers!

R.I.P. Shain and sincere condolences to the family & friends. I loved the show and it was exciting to watch a show about WV. I was happy that the show was a success and was looking forward to see what it would bring, especially to Shain.. It's hard to see the real charisma and genuine personality of a person from a t.v. screen but Shain did that and that's why everybody liked him. One reason I was sad was because I thought there was not enough time in his short life for people to get a chance to see how kind, funny and sincere he was. After seeing all these comments. I was so wrong. He touched so many lives, mostly of people that he never met including me.

I didn't know Shain , or any of his family personally. I was a huge fan, & I made it a point to be a viewer of Buckwild every Thursday. Something about Shain , made me feel like I crossed paths with him a time or two in life, even though I didn't. I give much respect to his parents, & family You raised a respectful , kind hearted, handsome country boy. You all should be very proud. My deepest sympathy, & Condolences to you all. I would also like to apologize for the inconsiderate, people in this world, who keep coming forwards with such negativity, and harsh words. They too will eventually come contact, face to face with their maker for their unkindness. I wish you all Peace , & happiness knowing he is now in a better place, & was taken peacefully while doing what he loved. Rest Easy Shain , God Bless You all!

To the Gandee Family:
I am deeply saddened by the loss of Shain. You're in my thoughts and prayers. Shain's fun and uplifting spirit will be deeply missed. I know that Shain will never be forgotten. He was a very special one of a kind person. Shain's smile was always charming. I would like to share this poem with you. I hope it brings you peace and comfort.

God's Flower Garden:
Sometimes we can't quite understand, our great creator's way.
When he takes a life so young and leaves one old withered and gray
whose life's work seems finished, perhaps is waiting the call.
While that life so young and tender, held so much here for us all.

Then sometimes I get to thinking, perhaps the world down here below
is just a flower garden where God's flowers live and grow.
And perhaps when God is lonely like us, he loves to roam;
in his garden gathering flowers just to beautify his home.

Tho he takes the full bloom flowers, drooped and withered that need his care
still he needs a bud or blossom; to scatter with them, here and there.
So he takes a few choice blossoms just the choicest he can find
and because God needs them up in Heaven must comfort loved ones left behind.

Sorry for the loss of your family member...I think why everybody could relate to Shain is because if you weren't just like him you knew someone in your family like him that's why he stood out among the rest..he was like watching someone in the family on tv and you could say hey doesnt' he remind of you so and so...or I was just like him when I was that age...so when it comes down to it Shain was like family for a lot of us who watched BuckWild even though we didn't know him it was kinda like we did....and thats why we the fans of Shain are grieving also thank you for sharing Shain with us...I hope all this makes some kinda sense to the family and friends of Shain...What I got most from the show was a young man who respected and loved his mama and daddy and just enjoyed living life....Prayers are with you all.

Shain was such a great person who showed a lot of courage and determination on the hit show that all of my friends loved known as Buckwild. If there was an award for being the most entertaining and inspiring person in the whole world then Shain would be the one to receive it. I've watched re-runs after re-runs of Buckwild just so I could see his smiling face that would light up a darkened sky. He is and forever will be Gandee Candy but not because its tricker treat all year round but because he was just such a genuine and sweet guy. Just sweet like candy. I only watched Buckwild because I was so interested in seeing what he'd be doing next whether it was playing with fire or riding in a dirty ol' mud hole. He was such a unique person and will be greatly missed by not only his friends and family but by is fans who stretch all over the united states. We love you Shain "Gandee Candy" Gandee. My heart goes out to his family and his friends. I know this has to be hard for you in loosing 2 family members and one whose so close to being one. May God bless you in your time of grief. The whole world believes that you'll make it through.

I can't imagine the pain and emptiness that Shain's family and friends are feeling. The world got to know Shain from the short first season of Buckwild and you couldn't help but to instantly fall in love with Shain and his great personality! We were lucky enough to get to see who Shain Gandee was but his friends and family were the ones blessed to have such a great, fun loving guy in their lives. And Shain's parents should be commended and proud of a son like Shain. Shain seemed to be the type to light up any room, turn any frown upside down, and that there was never a dull moment with Shain around. Shain's fans know they have lost a great guy so I can't imagine the void that people who were with Shain day in and day out are feeling. Thanks for the laughs Shain! May you RIP and watch over your friends and family who are hurting over the loss of you from their lives. Send them little signs to let them know you will always be with them! Another great person taken way too soon but I'm glad the world got to know who Shain Gandee was, even if it was for a short time! You will be missed! <3>

"We weren't prepared for you to go

You were too full of life to be

Taken away from us so soon

It's still hard to believe

How much we'll miss your smile

And your laughter in our ears

Your absence leaves a hole in us

We're filling with our tears

You taught us how to be our best

To in the moment live

To never hold a grudge for long

And loyal friendship give

Your presence was a light and joy..."

I am absolutely crushed over this tragic event, I will never understand why such terrible things happen to the best of people, and the ones who don't deserve it at all. Although I never got the pleasure of meeting Shain personally, I honestly felt like I knew who he was just through watching the show - he just had the effect of making people feel that way. He was one of the most genuine, loyal, free spirited souls I've ever seen, that would do anything for the people he loved, especially his family and friends. He loved life, and lived it to the absolute fullest, more than most people will ever have in their lifetime. His infectious personality, smile, and laughter drew people in, and that will be dearly missed. The world would be a much better place if there were more people like him in it, but he will never be forgotten - he departed from this world leaving such an impact on so many people - even people he didn't even know, and to me, that shows how amazing of a person he truly was. If I could picture an ideal man having all the qualities I could ever want in a person, Shain had them all, which is why it was so hard not to have the biggest crush on him. I cannot imagine what his family and friends are going through, but my heart goes out to you all. I know it's a void that can never be completely filled, but the amazing memories you have of Shain will live on forever. I know he's watching down over all of you, and smiling. Rest Sweetly Angel, you will be forever missed.

Sending you love from Maryland.

To the Gandee Family, my heart goes out to you! There are no words to describe the pain that you are encountering at this moment. I am a parent myself and couldn’t imagine losing my child. I don’t know you personally, but I came to love your son through watching Buckwild, with my fifteen year old daughter. As an African American single parent from the South, I understood the show, especially the values and love that was showed. Your son Shaine had that type of personally that made everyone tune in weekly. He was a sweet, loving, fun, handsome, young man that lived life to the fullest, doing what he loved. God shared him with the world, showing us that you don’t have to follow the rules of society to be accepted. Shaine instilled in us that at the end of the day, the love of family and friend is all that we needed. Shaine was well grounded and didn’t allow what others thought of him to affect the person that he was. In my opinion, Shaine was brilliant and creative. I loved how he could turn simple everyday items into something fun and adventures. My favorite memory of him from the show is when he turned the dump truck into a swimming pool. And I will never forget his famous saying “Cause It’s Trick or Treat All Year Long”. Inclosing, know that your son life meant a lot to all that came to know him, whether in person or through television. God called his angel home, and one day you will come together as a family in Heaven. Be blessed and know that we all are suffering your lost with you. I will continue to pray for you and your family.
Sincerely,
Ms. Lisa Sampson, BS, MA, QMHP

Shain you had a smile that lit up for a mile, your personality was among the funniest, sweetest, adorable you will ever see, I know your in Heaven with my dad to be. I remember seeing you at foodland when I was getting food, you came running to hug me as Shain would do. You loved Buckwild as we all did, It never changed the Shain I have known since you were a kid. Growing up in Thaxton Holler when I was a child, the muddier we got made us think we were wild. Shain you have seen Kristin on her Racing dirt bike muddy as can be, I have to watch her race, Scares Me, but it's in her blood you see. Shain you have so many family and friends who love you with all their heart, and now your gone to Heaven and your mom and dad are torn apart. Shain I Love ya and will miss that Gandee Candy smile, Rest in Peace in Heaven and watch over us a while. Always Love,

To know that your son touched the lives of so many he never met! my thoughts and prayers are with Shain's parent, family, & friends during this difficult time. there are no words that can ease your pain in the days that lie ahead but you must know you raised one fine boy. dont think of what could have been but think of what was and know that Shain's purpose must have been fullfilled for the Heavens to call him back so soon. its never in the grand design for a parent to outlive their child but God must have needed an angel. rest easy knowing he is watching over you all and awaiting the day he can be with you again. May God wrap his arms around you all & bring you peace, comfort, & strength as you embark upon this difficult journey. R.I.P Shain "Gandee Candy" kick up some mud among the clouds so everytime your family hears thunder they will know its you going "buckwild"!

I didn't know Shain personally, but he sure did make an impression on all the fans of Buckwild; including myself. The thing that stuck out the most with Shain, was his smile and personality. He seemed to be a good ole'country boy who loved life and was raised well from by his parents. My condolences to his parents and the ones closest to him, who are dealing with this hard time! So sorry for your loss!

I didn't know Shain, but was a huge fan. He was the only reason I watched the show. You will be missed Gandee Candy! Trick or treat it up in heaven!

I was a huge fan of Shain(: He was the only reason why I watched Buckwild. He made me laugh everytime I watched the show. I was hoping to come to Sissonville and hopefully get to meet him this summer. Some of the things he did to have fun, are the sort of things we do in Gilmer County to have fun. He was exactly right when he said, "we aint't got much, but we make do with what we do got." He always had a smile on his face and he was sort of like a hero to me. God truly got an AMAZING angel and I know that Shain will always be looking down on us to see if we are young, free and Buckwild!

Such a rare thing in today's world to find a young man who when thrust into the spotlight didn't pretend to be something he wasn't and instead showed us exactly who he really was. A heart as big as a mountain with roots that he was proud of that ran deep in his community, not changing for the camera but instead sharing his life and world with us. He brought smiles and laughter to so many, and reminded at least some of us to remember our own roots. You raised an exceptional young man Loretta & Dale. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Mr. & Mrs. Gandee, I've watched my mother's parents and my father's mother go through the loss of a child. I lost both my parents at young ages. I don't ha e children myself, so I'm not going to say that I know what that feels like. Watching them go through that was hard. I want you to know that I have been praying for you ever since I heard the news. I pray that God puts his arms around you and holds you as long as you need. I pray he gives the strength you need to get through this. I was a fan of your son's. He had the brightest most vibrate personality. What I thought the most of is how he was like everybody's dad,LOL. He cared so much he kinda became protective. You could tell he loved life and he made a lot of friends and fans. Thanks for sharing your son with us. Maybe we can learn from him. The lesson I would take from him would be to live and have fun but always be yourself. May God bless your family. Remember, you will see him when you get there. RIP Shain.

Sending love from Atlanta! I just wanted to share something with you; my cousin and most favorite person in this world passed away last may from a gun accident. Shain reminded me of him in a way, so carefree and always having fun; he'd do anything to get a smile on your face. It took me a long time to be able to sit with that pain, and I'm still fighting it to this day. I ask God why all the time, but I think I might know. People like him, and like Shain, they're already so good. It's like they know something the rest of us don't, like they already got it figured it out. They already knew how to live, they accomplished what they came here for. And so, they get to go home early. I know it may not help much, but I just wanted to share my theory with you all. No other kind of pain in this world can measure up to this pain. May God be with you in the days to come. My prayers are with you and I can only hope that you will find comfort in knowing that your boy is safe where he is and you will be seeing him soon. Much love to the entire Gandee family.

I know that there are no words that can comfort you in this terrible time. When my brother died two years ago tragically due to a four wheeler accident, I was told that I was not meant to understand it, just accept it. I don't believe that and I don't believe that everything happens for a reason. Shaine was such a funny, energetic, happy person and no one will ever know why God took him so young. I want you to know that my thoughts, prayers, and heart goes out to you and your family, all of Shain's amazing friends, and his girlfriend in this terrible time. Please know that my fiancee and I are going to release balloons in honor of Shaine. Stay strong and just know that he is on his greatest journey. God bless you all.

Always Remembered Always In Our Hearts...

When I come to the end of the road 
and the sun has set on me,
 I want no rites in a gloom filled room,
 Why cry for a soul set free. 
Miss me a little–but not too long,
and not with your head bowed low,
Remember the love that we once shared,
 Miss me–but let me go.
 For this is a journey that we all must take,
 And each must go alone.
It’s all a part of the Master’s plan,
 A step on the road to home. 
When you are lonely and sick of heart,
Go to the friends we know.
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds,
Miss me–but let me go.

I could not stay another day
 To laugh, to love, to work or play. 
Tasks left undone will stay that way,
 I found that peace at close of day. 
If my parting has left a void
 Then fill it with remembered joy 
A friendship shared, a laugh a kiss,
 Ah yes, these things I, too, will miss.
 But not burdened with times of sorrow, 
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
 I’ve savored much.
 Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch.
 Perhaps my time seemed all to brief
 Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief,
Lift up you hearts and share with me,
God wanted me now,
 He set me free.

If tears could make a staircase,
And heartaches make a lane,
We'd walk the path to heaven
 And bring you home again.


There will always be a heartache,
and often a silent tear,
But always a precious memory
 Of the days when you were here.

You never said I'm leaving
You never said goodbye.
You were gone before I knew it,
 And only God knew why.


It broke my heart to lose you,
But you didn't go alone
For part of me went with you,
The day God took you home...

In Memory Of Shain Gandee... R.I.P.

Gandee Candy Shain. An angel on earth and now an angel in heaven. You put a smile on my face every week watching Buckwild. I hope you are playing in some mud pits in heaven. Still upsets me to this day that you had to go. But God knows when he needs his angels home. My thoughts and prayers to your family. God bless them all and always watch over them. Until we meet in heaven rest in peace Shain"Gandee Candy"!!!!!

I am deeply sadden for your family. Even though I didn't know him personally, watching the show I could tell who he was. I hope that my kids grow up to be as respectful and willing to make someone smile like Shain did. I know that every one keeps saying he was gone too soon but God takes people when he's ready. Heaven just got a lot more awesome:) I know shain is getting buckwild up there. Peace be with you

I loved the show "buck wild" and to be completely honest we simply tuned in to laugh and admire Shain. He had a contagious personality. I know we are strangers, I'm a pastor in Richwood ohio and I assure you that you have been in my prayers. So sadden by the loss. Me and my three boys were planning a road trip to sissonville this summer simply to try and meet shain. They loved him on the show. May God grant you comfort in this dark valley.

I will grieve with you with groanings too deep for words,
I will sympathize with the temptation to believe the lies that you have heard, I will mourn over the loss of finite family and friends,
and I will defeat death so that you will know that DEATH IS NOT THE END." - Jesus Christ our Savior

It isn't the end, Shain will be remembered forever, and he's watching over y'all. His love will forever remain present.

I didn't know Shain personally but his personality from the show IS magnetic and touched the very depths of my soul. I can't stop thinking about this tragedy and the love that's been overflowing through the people who speak about him. It's evident in all the people who are just heartbroken by this tragic event that he saw life in a very optimistic way and valued the little precious things in life. He didn't seem to judge others and wasn't drawn to drama, he seemed to just simply LOVE - and love on people. He is an angel. God used him in many ways to touch people's hearts in genuinely. I wish I could be like that. Shain's personality and this heartbreaking news really humbled me. It's inspired me to take advantage of opportunities and value everything especially the simple things - to be thankful. If I could, I wish I'd taken Shain's place in that Bronco because this world needs more people like Shain. God bless the Gandee Family and I pray that God will rest in your hearts and bring peace to the heartbroken. With love, Lynn.

My deepest condolences to the Gandee Family. I did not know Shain personally but of all of the cast members of the show "Buckwild," Shain was by far my favorite one. He showed that he was an original outdoors-men. Also, the way he lived was so free and simple that it makes you think what is important in life. He was able to show how life with your family and friends around instead of all the technology was such a better and peaceful life. My deepest prayers are with his family and just remember that the Lord now has another angel by his side.

God's Lent Child

"I'll lend you for a little while
A child of mine" God said-
For you to love the while he lives & mourn for when he's dead.
It may be six or seven years or forty two or three
but will you,till I call him back, take care of him for me?

He'll bring his charm to gladden you
and, should his stay be breif,
you'll have his nicest memories
as solace for his grief.
I cannot promise he will stay,
since all from earth return
but, there are lessons taught below,
I want this child to learn.

I've looked the whole world over
in my search for teachers true,
and from the things that crowd life's lane
I have chosen you.
Now will you give him all your love,
nor think the labour vain,
nor hate me when I come to take
this lent child back again?

I fancied that I heard them say,
"Dear Lord Thy Will Be Done"
for all the joys thy child will bring
the risk of grief we'll run.
We'll shelter him with tenderness,
we'll love him while we may, and for the happiness we've known
forever grateful stay.
But, should thy Angels call for him
much sooner than we planned,
we'll brave the greif that comes and try to understand.

~May the memories you have, Keep Shain alive in your hearts~

I am so sorry for y'alls loss. Honestly ive never met him in person... but he was a beautiful person. he was ALWAYS happy. Shain never let material things or lack of things make him un-happy. He always had a smile on his face. He was never negative or judgemental, just good ol' Shain. I just wish people would get that. He was a genuine human being, not some dumb illiterate redneck. He was one of the few people left in this screwed up country not defined by what they have or want, but by who they were and what they loved. May his soul rest in peace and may Loretta and Dale be consoled and healed. Its trick or treat in heaven now. Rest in peace Shain Gandee. <3>

When "Buckwild" was showing on my tv I didn't think it would be worth watching. But my dad told me to sit down and watch it because it was a really good show. So i did and it turned out to be a really good show. Even when it showed the reruns me and my dad would sit down and watch it. I have to say Shain was one of my favorites on the show, but he wasn't the only. LOL. Buckwild wont be the same because he was pretty much coming up with the wild things to do and he built everything they did. I do hope they keep the show going in his memory. R. I. P. Shain Gandee

I didn't know Shain personally, just from watching him on the show, but it's crazy how you feel like you know someone just from watching em on a tv show and you grow attached. He had the best personality a person could have. He was all about having fun and made sure to have a good time no matter where he was. His smile was contagious to everyone. Wish I woulda had the chance to meet him! I couldn't believe it when I heard this terrible news, I'm still kinda in shock as I'm sure a lotta people are.

To the family and close friends of Shain, my heart hurts for ya'll. It's so sad to lose someone who means so much to you, especially unexpectedly. There's so many questions I'm sure ya'll have, but just know that everything happens for a reason. God called him home and we may never know why until we get up there, and as hard as it may be, remember he is in a better place and he would want each and everyone of ya'll to be happy and think of all the great memories ya'll had together in his short time here on Earth. He wouldn't want no one to be upset. I could tell just from getting to know him through a TV show for such a short time, that he was the type of person that would never wanna hurt nobody's feelings intentionally.

Shain you will be terribly missed by so many. You have touched so many people's lives, even ones who never were lucky enough to meet you. I'm so happy that Buckwild introduced us to you, because even though us fans didn't get to meet you personally, we all still feel a closeness to you from getting to know you through the show. I'll miss seeing that. From the moment I first seen you on there, I knew I was gonna love you and you were gonna be my favorite! Watch over your family and friends and have fun muddin up there in Heaven and keep showing that contagious smile of yours! We miss you and love you Gandee Candy!

I want to extend my deepest sympathy to the family and friends, he was the one that made the buckwild show and it won't be the same without him. May God be with you and guide you through all you face during this time.

I met Shain twice , me and my bestfriend Madison Johnson were at apple bee's in south charleston . We were just coming in and sitting down at our table when all of a sudden Shain walks in the door to make a reservation. Me and Madison screamed in joy & almost in tears that we just seen Shain from buckwild our favorite !!!! When he had walked back out the door to wait in line me and Madison were shaking saying OMG !! We just saw shain Gandee !! Than we got our phones and we ran up to him and were screaming & we hugged him , he was soo funny & super nice ! When we got our pictures he would say buckwild really funny on 3 . I laughed so hard I nearly cried !! While leaving him from getting our pictures taken , he comes in and sits so close to us & we flip out again cause of course we loved shain!! & my mom & dad called him over and were asking him questions about the next season and to see how he was doing and he sat there and talked to us for about ten minutes . The best ten minutes of my life !<3 us waved goodbye we while than he leaving were><33>

Dear Dale and Loretta: My heart is filled with sorrow for you and your family in the loss of Shain and David. I pray that God will wrap His arms around you and comfort you and help you find the peace that only He can provide.

I am a grandmother and I loved the show. Shain's grin, his adorable actions, and enjoyment of life were so precious. God loaned you a very special gift when you were blessed with Shain. And from all I have read YOU DID GOOD
with that gift.

May God bless you and your family.

I didn't know shain in person but from watching Buckwild, he seemed like such a great person. I would've loved to have met him. Anyone who had him in their life at one point in time was pretty lucky. It's crazy how a life can be taken away like that in a blink of an eye. Never take life for granted. I know shain will be greatly missed by many. The show Buckwild will also never be the same without him. My heart goes out to the gandee family and my prayers are with you all. Rest in paradise sweetheart.

A thousand times we will need you
A thousand times we will cry
If love alone could have saved you
you never would have died
A heart of gold stopped beating
two twinkling eyes closed to rest
God broke our hearts to prove he only took the best
Forever you will be in our hearts Shain

The recent loss of your son Shain who has left us at such a youthful age is certainly in the category of those hard losses for which there is that painful reminder of what might have been.
We offer our sincere condolence and deepest sympathy on your loss. May the outpouring of sympathy, the kind acts of friends and strangers and the comfort in knowing that your loss is felt by many, help you through this difficult time.
I ask for God's blessings on you and your wonderful family. May you find the courage and strength to move forward in peace and confidence and in knowing that his was a life well-lived.

With Deepest Sympathy,
The Cirello Family

I am a big fan , I started watching the show (buckwild) with my sister and shain was the one i would laugh at all the time, i was so glad when the show come back on. So i just want to drop a few line to say im so sorry , your family and friends are in our thoughts and prayers .......................
Even though he's gone
his memory still remains in our hearts.
His smile and face will never fade.
We think of him as we go on each day.
The good times we remember
and the days spent together
will be in our memories forever.
So when you start to get down
and you really want to cry
just think of the fun times
and don't wonder why.
Just leave it at that
and know he's better now.
He's in a better place.
His heart was right with God.
shain we love you
and we miss you so much
but we know you're much happier.
So watch over us and make sure we're okay
and we will see you again someday.

Seeing this is a harsh reality that it is really true. I was hoping and praying that it was a mistake and that nothing had happened to him. I didn't know Shain. I only watched the show. But thru watching Buckwild you can tell that Shain was an amazing person. Even though I didn't know him I have cried multiple times over it. I feel like thru watching him do what he loved and only worrying about making himself and the people who truly loved him happy has left an impact on many people. Seeing everyone affected so much by his death just proves that he was not only an amazing person, but will be an amazing angel looking down on everyone he loved and cared about. I am sorry for all of his friends and families loss. He was so young just starting his life. Just remember all the good times and all the good things he has done and also remember his beautiful smile. He is looking down on you all now. I send everyone prayers.

I did not know Shain, but I know he was too young to die. His purpose must been fulfilled and God called him home. He was a very funny kid and my son loved him and he will be dearly missed. Atleast he went peacefully and that is all a mother and father could ask for. Parents are suppose to go first not their children, but for all the kids out there that does not understand why, please understand God didn't do this to hurt you , it was his time. I have learned over the years that everyone has a purpose and everything happens for a reason. Please don't hate God or question yourself for what you didn't say or didn't do, it's not fair to you or God. Shain passed doing what he loved to do and their is a reason for it. He will always be with you. When you miss him, go outside and look for the brightest star and that is him. Time heals all wounds, its been 2 years for me and I still hurt because when you find PURE unconditional love it's hard to find it again. May God bring you comfort and peace through these troubled and hard times that are yet to come.

This is a devastation to all of us, I can't imagine what your family is going through. I hope god heals them well you were a good boy. I guess that's where the phrase only the good die young. Just too young and too soon RIP SHAIN

I just want to thank Shains parents for being so strong through all of this. I can't imagine how yall are feeling. I know I haven't slept right since I heard of the accident. Shain felt to me like a good friend whome I had never met. He was truly a free spirit. I'm very sorry that I couldn't help out financially with any of the funerals. Yall are truly in my family and friends thoughts and prayers. Continue to stay strong as Shain, his uncle and family friend are watching over y'all. With guardian angles like them watching over y'all; you should be just fine. I just wanted to share these thoughts with you. I love you through our lord and savior Jesus Christ!

My thoughts and prayers go out to Shain's family, friends and fans. May the Lord Jesus Christ be with you at this very difficult time. I'm from Weirton, WV and I'm 44 years old.I have a son that is close in age to Shain. My sister and I were curious about Buck Wild and wanted to watch it since we're from WV. Let me tell you, SHAIN GANDEE made that show. I was hooked after the first episode. Shain was my favorite out of everyone. He always had a smile on his face and was so carefree. He always came up with these crazy ideas to have fun with his friends. He will surley be missed by all who knew him and watched the show. May God Bless You Gandee Family.

We personally didn't know Shain but watched him on the "Buck Wild" show. While he was the first one we connected to he became our favorite because he was real. He never portrayed to be something he wasn't. We loved that he was a good ol' country boy. Our daughter loved him and was divested to hear he had passed as we also had. We hope his family gets their time to try and heal and cherish all the great memories they have.Shain you will be sadly missed by so many but loved forever..Rest in Peace Shain..<3>

But im sure hes looking down at all these people who came together as one to help his parents and the other victims. I dont think Shain would want all of u to be sad and cry because that wasnt the way he lived. He would want everyone to keep muddin and 4 wheeling keep doing what he loved the best.just remember its not bye its see u later.see u on the other side were theres no hate,crime or negative people. Sorry this is long but I just want u to know that Shain is liked from all over.theres so many people who cant be there are there in your heart.wish I could be there but again im sooo sorry for your loss may God be with u!

I just watched the show a few times but feel this overwhelming sadness when I see his photo and think about his passing. He is such a dear young man and had a heart of gold, that was obvious. He had so much love for life, friends and family. I hope the family can find some peace in knowing he was happy before his passing doing exactly what he loved so much.

My heart goes out to Shain and those left here. Love and peace for all.

I was such a huge fan of yours, you were the only reason we started watching BuckWild. I could just tell by watching you that you brought life into everyone who knew you. My heart was broken the day I found out you passed away. My prayers are with your family and friends. You were a very lucky guy to have so many people love and care for you. I hate that you are gone at such a young age,but the world was lucky to have you the short while it did. R.I.P Shain, God needed you in heaven, so he lifted you up and now your an angel watching over all of us!

Just like many others I'm sure, we did not know Shain, but felt like he could have been a close friend. We fell in love with him and loved the show. Our family originates from West Virginia, so we know the meaning of family and the treasure it can bring. Loved his zest for life and his down right honesty. Please know that you all are truly in our hearts and in our thoughts as you go through this terrible tragedy.

My deepest condolences to the Gandee family. I did not know him personally but watching him on tv, he totally reminded me of my brother Steven, with his free spirit, country living and happy ways. I also lost my brother at the young age of 26 and it's heartbreaking to know exactly what the Gandee family is going through. My prayers are especially for his parents and siblings because I know there is nothing that can console their grief right now. His spirit is with his family now during this most difficult time. My thoughts and prayers are with Shain and his family. Rest in Heavenly Peace Shain Gandee.

Shain knew my kids, Gary Matheney, owner of Key West tanning and smoke shop, Rachelle and Zachery Combs went to school with both Shain and Kansas, I remember Shain FLYING down the field making those TDs when him and Zach played midget league for the Indians, Rachelle and Kansas just cheering the boys on, those were the best days, wish we could all go back and do it all over again.............

I just want to tell Shain's Mom and Dad my thoughts and prayers are with them adn their entire family I can't begin to imagine the heartbroken hell you have to find some way of coping with, I genuinely wish you did not have to, that this just never never happened. Our deepest sympathy to you.....

Kansas honey I am so so sorry honey, Rachelle says to tell you she is really sorry too, we're both thinking about you baby. Hugs Kan, Im so so sorry!

If there is anything we can do for you, or your family, please know we are happy to..

Our condolences and prayers are with you all.

Words cannot express the grief or sadness that the Gandee family is going thru. I can say I did have the privilege of knowing and growing up with Shain. Buckwild was a calling for him and the best part of it, he was not a scripted character. How he acted and perceived everything on the show is how he was in real life. There was nothing fake about him at all. He was a great person, friend, and loyal son to his parents. With buckwild going on and the appearances he's had, I'm glad that this past week that I ran into him in sissonville and got to talk to him for a little to catch up. I'm so srry for the family, friends, fans, and Kansas his gf for their loss. Buckwild and the Sissonville community will never be the same. Shains in a way better place where he can watch over everyone and may still have a little fun if the big guy will let him. Gone but not forgotten...Shain Lelyn Gandee

It broke my heart in a million pieces when I heard the tragic news. My heart goes out to all of you especially Dale & Loretta. Although I didn't know Shain personally but got to see his character through Buckwild, he was someone who you easily fell in love with. That spirit and charisma that he showed everyone will be truly missed especially by everyone that got the honor of personally knowing Shain. My prayers will be with his family and friend for years to come.

I had no intentions of ever watching his show but the first time I saw the preview and Shain's presence I had to get more. I was sucked into every episode to get more of Shain. He was the only reason I watched it. You could never get enough of him. I was just saying the day before the news I couldn't wait for the next season to see what Shain was up to. He will be forever missed and never forgotten.

We love you Shain!! May you rest in peace and have a party or two with Jesus. At least you're in a better place now & don't have to suffer in this world as we know it. Make your presence known to your family every chance you get & let them feel your spirit with them.

Dale & Loretta~ May you feel Shain's spirit around you and comfort you in your times of need. You did an AMAZING job raising that young man. I wish there were more people like him, if there was this world would be a better place.

May God comfort all of you!!

Shain will be sadly missed and if the show does continue, it just won't be the same without him. My thoughts and prayers, go out to the entire family, and all of Shain's friends. Trust me when I say, the world shares in your grief and we have shedded our tears.

Sending our deepest sympathies to the family. May the Lord provide you with comfort & strength as only He can. I have children Shain's age and this has just burdened my soul. I remember watching the episode where Shain said it was Trick or treat all year round, and I laughed so hard! He just was different and seemed to shine as a good person. May you find peace that he's resting in the arms of Jesus and that one day you'll be with him again. God bless and please know prayers are being sent up for ya'll.

I am a big fan of "BUCKWILD" Shain really made the show. I never missed watching it, no matter what i was doing i would drop everything to watch it. Just because Shain made me laugh you never knew what was going to come out of his mouth or what he was going to do. You could tell that he loved to make anyone he was around happy no matter what was going on. You could tell he was a guy who loved his parents and family more than anything. I am so very sorry for his family's loss! This still does not seem real, I will be keeping him and his family in my thoughts and prayers! I would like to thank his mother and father for giving us fans "Gandee Candy" for a short time. He touched all of us he made me laugh and he made so many more people laugh! He will be missed!

Posted by Tracy - MA   April 04, 2013

I thoroughly enjoyed watching Shain and his friends on Buckwild. It was obvious that he loved his family and his friends and his life very much and that that love was returned to him. That show made me laugh so much! I lost my 21 year old brother unexpectedly so my family knows how you all feel. Though it is heartbreaking and painful, find peace in the fact that he died doing what he loved. This was a tragic accident and I hate that people are spreading negativity about Shain and his "mudding" trips and wanting to end Buckwild, it was obvious that Shain and his friends and family were real people, not just putting on a show for the cameras. You guys keep living life to the fullest because that is how you find happiness. Prayers and hugs coming all the way from Washington!

I'm so sorry for your loss. Watching "Buckwild" reminded so much of my younger years. Yes, my crew was a handful too but we enjoyed life and each others company mixed with mud. Those days I would never change and the memories will forever be in my heart. Shain and his friends are just good ole country kids having fun. Ik many of times God's hand was on us and sometimes he called some of us home. Ik we question "why" but the only thing we can do is hold on to God for comfort and strength. I will be praying for you all. Love and Prayers.

I am a huge fan of Shain and his family. I obviously did not know him personally, but from what I've seen of Shain, I feel like I know him. I know every other fan would say this but I had such a love for Shain. His soul is fun loving, and I can see he truly cared for everyone else before he cared for himself. There are so many words I cant find to describe him but I know there is no need for words. He was an angel send down to be on the Earth to pass by, now he has been called back but what feels like to early. At the news of his passing, as a fan I am devastated, crying my heart out because I felt like Shain had reached out and impacted me from the show, as well as his family and friends. Please know I keep all of his family and friends in my heart and prayers as they go through an unbelievably difficult time and know that Shain was loved everywhere. He was a great person, and inspires me to be more like him. Thank you for sharing a little bit of Shain with the world. I am truly sorry and sympathetic to your loss. Bless all yalls hearts. <3>

He was the go to guy if you needed help with something. He always made people laugh and could always put a smile on someone's face. Whenever I wasn't in a good mood, I'd turn on my television, and there he was making me laugh, giggle, and smile. He made everyone's day better and the people i know that also watch the show would say the exact same thing. My cousin Samantha was also a big fan of Shain.

My roommate and I were avid watchers of 'Buckwild' during the first season; we never missed a new episode, and if we did, we would stay up late to catch the re-run. Shain was one of our favorite cast members; he reminded us a lot of a guy that we both met in college, and aside from that, he was just so fun-loving, hilarious, and loveable that it was completely impossible NOT to immediately take a liking to him. Neither one of us ever met him, but we were both devastated to learn of his passing and agree completely that if the show does continue, it definitely won't be the same without the "Gandee Candy."

My thoughts and prayers are with Shain's family and loved ones in this difficult time, as well as the family and loved ones of David Gandee And Donald Robert Myers.

Shain, I pray that you have found eternal peace and joy with our Father in Heaven.

Growing up in the country you can think of some creative things to entertain yourself and Shain surely showed that on each and every episode he appeared in! God Bless the Gandee Family!

All death is sad but to lose such a promising and budding life so early is a true tragedy. RIP Shain Gandee you will be missed; please feel free to ride along with my family anytime we go muddin'.

We are truly sorry for your loss. Our heart aches for you and your family. Shain was an inspiration to many people. And, while life does not make sense and losing someone as young and loving as Shain is tragic, please remember Faith consists in believing when it is beyond the power of reason, you must believe.

My heart is so sad for your family. When I heard the news I cried and began to pray. I grew up on Allen s Creek. I loved seeing Shain and every Road and scene in the show. It is home. I came to wolf pen and even drove past your home last year. My dad died there in a tragedy years ago. He is buried past Goff church next to my brother Richard in the Mangus Cemetary. I am so thankful that Shain was saved. My prayers have been with the cast for salvation since the beginning of the show. Shain has always been different . When Loretta asked Shain on camera to go to church, my thought was bring them up in the way of the Lord and they will not part far from God. Good Job Loretta and Dale. I am so very sorry for the loss of all 3 men. May God forever hold you all close and keep you forever safe in Him. The Lord said I go and prepare a place for you, if it were not so I would have told you. Shain is safe in Christ. April 2 is my only child s birthday. He is autistic. I know that He is also ever safe in our Lord.
I know that you as Children of God Love our Lord. Know that Shain will forever change the lives of many. May God forever keep Shain and His memory alive so that others may know that where Shain is with Jesus, they may be also, through the power of the Holy Spirit. I pray that God will guide you to lift Shain up to the public in proclaiming Gods saving grace. My heart and prayers are truly with your family. As a sister in Christ and a mother, I Love you.

He reminded me what it was like to grow up in a small town. He will be dearly missed!!!

Too young gone too soon. Your passing breaks my heart. It feels like a bad dream. To your parents - I am so sorry you have to go through this. I've always told my parents I want to go before them but they told me it's not supposed to work that way. I have no kids myself so I cannot imagine what you are feeling. If I have tears as I type this, you must have rivers of full pain. He didn't mean to do this to you and he probably feels so terrible for it.

God Bless your families and friends in your time of loss. My kids and I would watch the show and laugh and cry together-it was great especially since we could relate to the country lifestyle. Shain was the heart and soul of BUCKWILD and he seem to be a wonderful son and a wild eyed southern boy that was full of life and goodness and willing to do anything for anyone. We have a person in our lives that is a "Shain" and he was taking away from us not in death but by trusting the wrong person and ending up in prison for a while. I pray we get him back not just to lose him again. When I look and the pictures of Shain I see our friend-its hard not to just stare. Please know you have a special angel in heaven to watch over you and guide you until you are together again-maybe he will even trick or treat you from above. Our prayers are with you in your time of healing. Shain will roll on in our hearts and we will honor him every time we hit a mud hole.

Sleep Softly by: Michelle Kreiner

Close your eyes
sweet boy
sleep softly,softly

The Lord's angel
has come
along swiftly, swiftly

Making no sounds
our feet
search hauntingly, hauntingly

The holler echos
in silence
so completely, completely

Atop the hill
tears flow
more freely, freely

Good boys die
too young
sleep softly, softly

Whether you were family, friend or fan. I believe we all got to view who he was thru the Buckwild series. I believe he was as genuine WV'ian "good ole boy" as WV can get. Obviously MTV saw the same thing....he didn't chase them down, they NOTICED him. They saw a young, funny, adventurous as a pup lifestyle and we did too. He chased his dreams on a shooting star that tragically ended much too soon. RIP Shain Gandee

As a fellow Buckwild viewer and West Virginian by marriage I am sad to see Shain go, he had a lovable personality on the show which I'm sure was 1,000 times more evident in person....I just buried my 24 old cousin, not only is the pain of losing a family member hard to handle but the loss of such a young life is harder. All of the condolences in the world won't make the pain go away, but I hope all the of love for Shain expressed here and in person will comfort you knowing he didn't have to meet these people for them to care.

Mr. & Mrs. Gandee, I am so terribly sorry for your great loss. No words or expressions could ever begin to express the sympathy I feel for your family at this time. I, like most true red blooded American good ole country mud bogging folks, know the joy and fun that Shain enjoyed in the great outdoors.Please, take comfort in knowing that your son Shain was a true delight to many fans like me, who tune in to MTV's Buckwild and really enjoy watching good ole country people enjoying rural activitys with Shain leading the way. His and his friends antics were so refreshing, and reminded me of when my son and his friends were young. Shain had a great personality that reflected much of his loving upbringing. Take comfort in knowing that Shain was a true southern gem glistening in the warm southern sun and will always be loved by many.

It would be nice if every person had the heart he had and the respect that he showed for others. I want to thank Dale and Loretta for giving this nation such a wonderful son that we could all enjoy in our lives. I am so sorry that you have lost him at such a young age, but I know he’s and Angel in Heaven where he will be with you always.

Sending thoughts and prayers to the Gandee family, Many thanks to Shain's parents for sharing such a wonderful young man with the whole world.

My thoughts & prayers are with the Gandee family & friends during this difficult time of loss. Not many of us knew Shain the way his family did, but we can probly all agree we felt we knew him as we sat down to watch him & his friends on Buckwild. Shain seemed to be just a ray of sunshine to his parents & his friends. If he didn't make you laugh,then you had no sense of humor. May his energy,love for his family & friends and just being a down home Country boy live forever in those that loved him most! R.I.P Shain "Gandee Candy" Gandee

First and for most you all are in my thoughts and prayers. Losing a loved one, a friend, a classmate, a neighbor, ect is NEVER easy.

To Shain's parents may you try to find comfort in knowing that one day you will meet agian! Find comfort in knowing he is at peace.

To Shain's girlfiend Kansas Whiting may you try to find comfort in knowing that he loved you unconditionally and have the comfort that you will meet agin.

To Shain's sister, may you find comfort along with your parents and his girlfriend in knowing that one day you will be reunited. He will ALWAYS be with each and every one of you.

Death is never easy, nor in our favor. Death is a part of life that we all have to go through. After losing both of my parents I learned that the saying "with time it gets easier" is a false statement the truth is you learn how to live every day with memories, thoughts, and ideas that remind you of that individual you lost. I pray that you all keep Shain alive with the memories and know he is with you every where you go.

Mr. and Mrs. Gandee, we are so so sorry for your loss of this Beautiful amazing son of yours. He was truly loved by us and many more and will be greatly missed. Fly High Shain!! Fly High!!

I am from the same town, but never met Shain. His passing has really broke my heart. I was not an avid watcher of his show, but every time I look at his picture I can see he was full of life, love, and goodness. His smile makes me smile. I too feel like I have lost a family member. I can never express enough how sorry I am for your loss and can never image how his friends and family are hurting. He was obviously loved and left beautiful memories. Through those memories he will always live. God bless the friends and family of all who were lost and the Sissonville community.
Love, hugs, and prayers!

My thoughts and prayers to his family. I am a WV native myself and I loved watching him on TV. He brought back so many memories from when I grew up there. He is a special person and it's so sad to have him taken so soon. The only way to try and get through it is to just remember God was ready for another special angel. God Bless the Gandee family.

It saddens me that such a wonderful gun loving guy like Shane lost his life so early. I was greatly looking forward to my vacation I planned to visit sissonville this summer!! Shane was an amazing guy and always put a smile on my face when I watched him on tv. I know that all the words, I'm sorry's, and kind words of encouragement can't change things or make it better. Just know you and your family have all the support in the world to be there for you. In honor of Shane Gandee I dedicate Saturday nights mudding party to him. We love you Shane and will missed like crazy. May you rest peacefully and stay in all of our hearts.

My girlfriend and I watched Buckwild every week and we enjoyed Shain so much we tuned in just because of him. Shain made us laugh every episode and the show is nothing without him. He was just like guys we grew up with. He was a very funny guy and you could tell he had a very big heart and loved his friends and family. We had a chance to meet Shain at I-77 Ford in Ripley and we were one of the last people to get his autograph before he left that day to go film for MTV. We will always remember how nice and courteous he was to us and treated us like we had been friends forever. In that very short period of time we bonded and he made us laugh and feel good. He also told us to be careful when we left, which was really cool from someone you just met. We wish his family all the love and prayers we can and are very sorry for their loss. For his parents my heart melts , I can not imagine the pain. Just remember your son touched our hearts very quickly and he was a very special person. I am very sad, but very happy we were able to meet him and be able to have that memory.

My teenaged daughters and I recorded Buckwild every weekend so we could all watch it together. We laughed hysterically at some of the antics on the show, but especially at Shain. Just from watching him on the show and not personally knowing him, I'm know he was a ray of sunshine for his family and friends in times of darkness. And even though now is one of your worst times of darkness, when a ray of sunshine beams down on you, you know who it is. May God bless and comfort you all.

I am a 48 year old, professional , single mother of 2. I am a huge fan of Bucklwild though it seems to to against my character. You were my favorite person on the show. I was deeply saddened to hear of your passing and not sure why it effects me so much. Naturally, because you left to soon but I think mainly because you wore your heart on your sleeve and it was obvious that your heart was genuine and you were kind.

Thoughts and prayers to your family and friends.

I got a dirtbike and didn't know how to ride it, it was a used one and had a few problems with it. I took it up to handy dandy gandee (shain) lol and he fixed it right up for me and we RODE AND RODE all day, we went up the mountain down the road thru the creek and anywhere our gas tanks allowed. I told my girlfriend id be back in a hour and was gone 8. The 1st day he got his Bronco he had to break it in, he had told us to come check his car out so we did and he begged britt to let us go get a lil mud on er. after pinky promising to be gone only a half hour we hopped in and took off like a bat outta hell. 4 hours later we came back and had put the bronco to the test and it was "shain" approved. he even gave her a nickname. I could go on and on but theres not enough time of day to type it all, SHAIN WAS A GOOD MAN, FRIEND AND ALL AROUND PERSON, and there will never be a day that he isn't thought of and missed, R.I.P shain we will all join you some day in paradise, but for now we just have to live life to the fullest, as did you!

I know this is a pain that will never go away and something you can never forget, just remember they will always be with you and live on in your hearts forever Til you meet again.
May god be with you all

I loved your personality and kindness on the show, Shain. You were the reason I tuned in for every episode. It saddens me so much to think you died doing something you loved so much...but it's comforting to know it was painless. My sincerest thoughts and prayers go to the Gandee family during this terrible time in their lives. Shain is resting with the Lord now, and he's in a better place than any of us right now! Rest In Paradise Shain Gandee.

I did not know Shain personally, but my family and I watched the entire season of Buckwild and I never missed an episode. He was my favorite person on the show and never failed to make us laugh. Our hearts go out Shain's family and friends in this hard time. Heaven gained a wonderful angel and may he, his uncle David, and Robert Myers all rest in peace.

Every single time the show came on I had to watch it, he always knew how to put a smile on your face. May he rest in peace and watch over his family and friends.. Will be thinking of the family during this difficult time of the burial of their son. Much love all the way from South Carolina... WE LOVE YOU GANDEE CANDY!!!!

So sad to see such a young man go too early in life. No words ease the pain Shain's family is going through. My heart aches everytime i read about Shain. He was so full of life and loved by so many. He is with the man above now, probably teaching him how to get muddy. Heaven is a much better place now with Shain being there. It's never going to be dull that's for sure. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of his family and friends. RIP SHAIN! Have fun in heaven, you deserve it!!! ;(

RIP Shain Gandee, Your Were An Amazing Person. When tomorrow starts without me please try to understand that an angel came she called my name she took me by the hand she said my place was ready in heaven far above and that I'd half to leave all those I dearly loved but as I turn to walk away a tear fell from my eye for all my life I'd thought I didn't want to die I had so much to leave for so much yet to do it almost seemed impossible I'd be leaving you I thought of all the yesterday's the good ones and the bad i thought of all the fun we had if I could relive yesterday even for awhile I'd say goodbye and kiss you then I could see you smile then I finely realized that could never be for the emptiness and memories could take the place of me
Rest in peace

I am terribly sorry for your loss. I enjoied watching Shain on every episode of BUCKWILD! Just watching him, you could tell he was a very nice and caring person. It's heartbreaking knowing he is gone so young, but heartwarming knowing he is now watching everyone from above. I'm sure he would be very happy to know so many people cared about him. Not only the ones who were lucky enough to know him, but all of us fans he made while he was on the show!

So sorry for your loss! My grandmother had lost my uncle Brady at the age of 22 and has been devastating to my family ever since. No matter what anyone says this is something a parent will never get over and I hope God gives you all the strength to get through.
Watching Shain on television was an enjoyment for me because it brought me back to my younger years mudding in WV also. What a great kid you have.
I believe there's life after death and we will one day see our loved ones that have passed, this helps me a little get through hard times like this. A mother and a child has a bond like no other and as a mom my heart hurts for you. No child should ever go before a parent!!!! Your son will be dearly missed and my God bless you, your family, and friends.<3>

I just want the family of Shain to know that I will be keeping them in my prayers. I didn't know him personally but I watched him on the show and loved his personality. He seemed like a great guy & its sad to see this happened to him. I know being from West Virginia we all are a tight knit family, so losing one West Virginian effects us all. Hopefully you can grieve in peace without the media.

Today, I went to Buddy B's. I bought two shirts. My 4 year old daughter looked up at me and pointed to the donation jar on the counter and said look momma, there's Shain!!! She was so excited! Shain was her favorite from Buckwild. I had to explain to her that he had went to heaven...Shain and I had ALOT in common, we didn't know one another but I know we would have been great friends. I have a friend in heaven I lost in high school, he and Shain will get along GREAT. My friend was taken in a car wreck similar to what happened to Shain. As a parent I truly cannot begin to imagine what all of the families and close friends are going through at this time. My heart breaks to pieces, especially for his parents! Shain Gandee made me PROUD to say I am from West Virginia!!! Mr. & Mrs. Gandee did a WONDERFUL job with Shain!! Prayers and very much love to the entire Gandee family! Shain is very much missed!!!

Taken to soon, just beginning to live. Rowdy, and rough with a heart of gold.

There's nothing much better than four wheeling on back trails,
Nothing much better than climbing up the hills,
crawling up rocks, dragging the frame, but punching the gas,
cause you know your near the top and have everything to gain.
There's nothing much better than driving in the mud,
hoopin and hollering with friends when you’re dirty and stuck.
Nothing feels better than muddin together with cold beers in coolers and our friends at our sides.
May you be the muddin stud in heaven my friend!
You will be miss by all. Your family, your friends and by stranger you've never seen. My prayers are with all of these people at this emotion time.

I knew Shain personally. My son went to school with him and my daughter had a crush on him most of the time she was growing up. It's very hard to accept what happened knowing it could have been prevented. He was too young for his life to end so soon. It breaks my heart. Just wanted to send my condolences to the family. My prayers are with Loretta and Dale. I know how much it would crush my heart if it were one of my kids. I'm so very sorry. He may be gone physically but he will live on in so many hearts and will never be forgotten. R.I.P. Shain Gandee. You'll be missed.

Dear Gandee family,
Words cannot express how much your Shain has touched the lives of my fiancee and two young sons. After a hard days work, we eagerly awaited the happy, smiling and kind face of Shain. He was absolutely one of the most sincere, and caring people ever to come across our television.
Many times I remarked that there is no way that this child could fake how good, kind and loving he was. He was absolutely fun and funny. He was so caring and well brought up. It was plain to see that he was brought up right. Thank you so much for sharing your son with us, he made a difference in our challenging lives, and even taught my sons to love and respect me even more.
Congratulations, you did a fantastic job with Shain. He was special and we won't soon forget how genuine he was.

With much love and respect,

I looked for Shain at the Milton Flea Market a couple of weeks ago and had a nice conversation with his parents. I was disappointed that I didn't get to meet him, but expressed to them how this old retired school teacher was a devoted fan of a happy young man who reminded me of many of the students I taught over the years. He was a country kid with a bigger than life personality. He never met a stranger, loved his parents, went to church and would do anything to help others. He loved the woods, huntin', swimmin' in the river, muddin' and fixing old trucks. Shain was a happy West Virginia boy who let the world have a glimpse of what it is like to grow up in our wild and wonderful state.
God Bless and I hope to see Shain again one day on the other side.

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

Do not stand by my grave and weep,
I am not there... I do not sleep.
I am the thousand winds that blow,
I am the winter snow.
I am the autumn leaves that fall,
I am the summer sun on the concert hall.
I am the spring flowers under your feet,
Isn't that neat?
Do not stand by my grave and cry,
I am not there... I do not sleep.

I am so sorry for your loss. I met Shain about a week ago and the day I meet him in was not in a good mood and didn't expect to see him. After I talk to him I felt so much better I was in a great mood then. To see him enjoy life so much no matter what he was doing made me think why can't I be like I need to be. So he has made me start enjoying life more and quit focusing on all the things that go wrong. Rest In Peace Shain now it is trick or treat all year long. To his family I am sorry for your loss.

Loretta, Dale and Shalena, we are so very saddened by what has happened. We are not sure if you remember us, Andy was Shain's basketball coach at Bream Church so many years ago. Andy keeps the basketball that all the kids put their hand prints on and signed and then gave Andy at the banquet. He keeps it in a clear plexiglass box in his office, so we were privileged to have already had Shain's autograph from so many years ago. We have lost touch, but it was easy to see that Shain had kept his contagious smile, twinkle in his eye, and easy going personality. He obviously continued to love his family and friends with all his heart. Seems like all the qualities God requires of his angels. We pray that God will hold you all close and give you strength to get through this. Our thoughts are with each of you.

To change our lives.

This third candle we light in your memory.
For the times we laughed,
The times we cried,
The times we were angry with each other,
The silly things you did,
The caring and joy you gave us.

This fourth candle we light for our love.
We light this candle that your light will always shine with our family and We cherish the special place in our hearts
that will always be reserved for you.
We thank you for the gift
your living brought to each of us.

We remember you.

I didn't know Shain personally but just from watching the show I could tell he was a great guy and down to earth. my prayers are with your family during this difficult time. He will be missed dearly but never forgotten. RIP SHAIN

Shain was one of my students at SHS, and I can honestly say that there was never a dull moment as long as he was in the room. He had a great sense of humor and a very kind heart. Even after he graduated, I often saw Shain out in the community, and he always said hello and asked how I was doing. He was always the same and never pretended to be anything he wasn't. Shain was a remarkable young man, and those who knew him will never forget him. He always spoke very highly of his family, and I can't imagine what you must be going through. Please know that I am very sorry for your loss, and I will be praying for you.

R.I.P to Shain Gandee as I didn't know him personally but watching him on the show he seemed liked a really good and loving kid. He was the reason that my family and myself watched the show, and some of the things he and his friends did reminded me of the things that I did when I was his age.....I would like to extend my condolences to his family and closest friends and the Murphy family is sorry for your loss but u should know it is heavens gain i am sure. I could only imagine the pain that his parents are going thru and may God bless u all!!!!

I had the pleasure meeting your son at the Milton Flea market back in March. My 3 yr. old son ranover to him and Shain picked him right up and talked to him. He was a very sweet boy and I am glad I got to meet him. I know he is watching over all his family n friends. I am sorry for the loss of Shain. My thoughts n prayers go out to all his family and his friends.

Dale and Loretta you all and your famy are in my thoughts and prayers. Shain truly made the show Buckwild. He was my favorite he always made you laugh and he had a wonderful personality. He will surely be missed and that show will certainly not be the same.

Shain , there is so much to say about this ray of sunshine, he would always be smiling and if you wasn't he was sure to put one on your face. He was always happy, fun loving, and carefree. He really had a zest for life and before buckwild he was living it the way he was made to. I can remember he had a lot of broken bones from riding his motorcycle and four wheeler but he just keep doing what made him happy and all the people around him also. The one thing that impressed me the most was that he bounded with a lot of the older people, he would do yard work for them and just stay and sit and talk to them. He and his family Loretta (mom) Dale (dad) and him would keep the grave yard that my mom was buried in mowed every year and wanted nothing in return. THAT'S WHAT AS SMALL COMMIUNTY IS ABOUT DOING THINGS FOR OTHERS AND HE WOULD DO ANYTHING FOR ANYONE. Praying GOD will take this family in his arms and comfort them in there time of pain. I LOVE YOU SHAIN AND WILL NEVER FORGET YOU.

A lot of my family have known Shain and the Gandee family for a very long time. I am sorry for your loss and know that he is in a better place making everyone up there smile til their face hurts. I don't know him personally only through my family and friends but nothing but good things are said about him.

Posted by Christina Taylor Parks - Locust Grove, GA - family of friends   April 03, 2013

My deepest condolences to the Gandee family...I do not know Shain other than from his show...and it was truly his because he stole it every episode..but what an incredible passion for life he had! He was so loving and lived life to the fullest! I will truly miss watching him, cuz he always made me wanna be carefree! May he rest in peace for all eternity in the arms of our Lord!

I did not know your son personally, so I am not going to act like I did. I only seen him on the T.V. out of all, he was the one that truly made the show what it is today "...Now I don't have to go to the city to get my flirt on." and of course the famous line, "They call me Gandee Candy, wanna know why they call me gandee candy, cause it's trick-er-treat alll year round." When I heard the news I was just hoping that is was a April fools joke. I can't express how sorry I am that this had to happen to your son, He will remain in everyone's hearts.

May you be comforted knowing how many people young and old Shain touched although i never had the pleasure of meeting him.

Mr & Mrs Gandee and your entire family you have my deepest sympathy on your loses of your son and brother and friend, Just know that they are all now safe in the arms JESUS, May GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU,
