herbie of philadelphia pa

"Hey Shay,
I honestly can't begin to believe that it's been 8 years without you but I'm proud of you for being brave enough to make the ultimate sacrifice to defend your country. Not a day goes by that I don't miss you terribly. I love you more then words can describe. You were the best cousin anyone could ever have or want!!! Every thanksgiving I miss seeing your too tall goofball butt walk in my front door and automatically when you saw me you would get on your knees and sit back on your heels just to be eye level with me just to give me a hug. I miss those hugs :( Every time you did that you made me feel so special. I wish everyday before I go to sleep that I'll wake the next day and this nightmare will be over and I'll get a call saying that your coming home safe and sound. I honestly didn't think that when I saw you at the party we had for you before you left for Iraq was gonna be the last time I got to see you for the rest of my life. As I sit here writing this I have tears in my eyes....
Love you shay
Love Hail <3"
Hailey Reed of Attleboro

"Hey Shayne....
It's hard to believe that it has been 8 years.... The sting doesn't hurt any less... Those nasty Red Sox made it to the playoffs again.... And my Orioles didn't... lol. Booo. I miss you man... Chelsea is doing really well... you would be proud of her...
I know you are guarding those gates of heaven with that goofy smile and awful Boston accent. Put me on the list. I love you man. Semper Fi
2/2 forever

"Brother, how are you? I thought I would drop a line. I know its your birthday tomorrow and I wanted to wish you a happy birthday. My daughters are getting big now man. wish they could meet you. I tell them they have this crazy Uncle who is my brother from another mother looking after them. I was listening to this kenney chesney song the other day, its called who you'd be today. there are these two guys who are best friends and they go off to Iraq but only one comes home. It makes me think of you. I did get to see your brothers and sisters a couple of weeks ago so that was real cool. you have a great family. they treat me like one of their own. I'll quit writing you a book like I seem to always do. keep an eye out for my girls. S/F"

I have a picture of us in my sisters car before we left for Iraq and I have Bella saying, "theres daddy and Uncle Shayne". its awesome. Watch after us bro. S/F"

Woke up this morning, and said its my boys birthday. so happy birthday. I remember when you turned 19 in SOI, I remember having a smoke and you said it was your bday you were so pumped so I guess It just got ingrained in my head. Keep it real brother, until we meet again."
Nate Herbert

"Hey buddy,
We've all been thinking about you lately. Whenever I think about you 7 remember you, you give me strength. You were the strongest soldier out their, and that will never die. I wish we got to hang out more as I got older. Don't worry about bobby, he's doing great buddy :) He is going to school & living his life, you'd be so proud :') you make us all proud every single second. It's wierd how everyone seems to have someone close to them die this month. October. What a terrible and unforgiveable month this is. Everytime I drive over the bridge I can feel your spirit. you're the most handsome soldier on the line. Thank you for giving your life and sacrifice. I don't agree with the war but you'll forever be in my heart. <3
You're keeping us all strong down here. keep watching over us, I love you bud."

"Dear Cabino Family,
My name is Mira Vale, and I’m a senior at Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School in Sudbury, MA. I am in a history class at my school called World Crises, and as part of our study of the War on Terror, our teacher asked my classmates and me to find out about a military service member who lost his or her life in the war. Among the many stories I read as I was searching online, the story of your son Shayne stuck out at me. I decided to write you to offer my very deepest condolences at the loss of your son, and to thank you for his dedication and bravery in service. I cannot begin to imagine the pain of losing a child, but I’m sure the experience was and continues to be unbelievably challenging and heartbreaking. I extend to you my greatest sympathies and my hopes that you all are able to continue to heal in the wake of this tragedy.

Based on what I read about him, Shayne seemed like a wonderful and kind young man, the type of person everyone would want to know and be friends with. I have a friend who I imagine is a lot like Shane—a friendly, confident wrestler who has almost a magnetic quality to his personality. I thought for a minute how terrible it would be to lose this friend, and I think I got a sense of what Shane’s death did to your community. To be sure, he touched many lives in the short span of his own, and his contributions will not be forgotten."
Mira of Lincoln, MA

"happy veterans day marine, ill have one for you tonight."

"Cabino, hey brother whats up? I just ate 12 eggs, i was hungry. hope your doing good. Im still thinking of you. I miss you man. Im still in school and passing so thats something new. Just watch over me and make sure i do the right thing. Love you bro."
herbie of chambersburg,Pa

"Its funny Shayne, its been years now and i still get the goose bumps when i go over your bridge. I can just hear you now saying "Im the man how many of you people have your own bridge" i love you and miss you so much!!! I hope my son becomes half the man you grew up to be!!!"

Lance Corporal Shayne Matthew Cabino Franklin,MA

There was a memorial day tribute to our soldiers. We had to tell what we loved best in 300 words or less. I worked on it for about a month. Not because I couldnt figure out what we love best, but because it is impossible to get beyond the loss of losing you. Each word is dragged out from within and carefully placed. I finished Thursday and didnt have the heart to submit it because it is so hard...Only before this Memorial day ends it should be in print. So here it is , to you my Son with love.
What we love best, where do we begin. The very moment I knew that you existed and my heart was filled with joy. The day I brought you home from the hospital to your sister Brandi, and your brothers Justin and Billy. How we love you so. I can still see Justin at 2 bringing me his new baby. Or what about the year that Tony rented the limo when you were all so little. We rode around just watching Frosty the Snowman. The little Marine suit that I bought you when you were one. I have a picture. Who would believe that the patch is 2nd Marines 2nd Division, the very division and branch you were in 18 years later. Summers spent swimming at Nannies with Auntie Heidi, Auntie Holli, Uncle Markie and all the kids. Being the only one that got to go in Uncles room. You were such a beautiful baby, who could resist you. Perhaps bringing your little brother Zachary home from the hospital when you were 10. How you negotiated to keep your title “the Baby.“ I promised you that you could and I kept my word. You are forever and you will always be “the Baby” of the first batch. I allowed you to go to Canton school in September to graduate your senior year, where you turned 18 in February of 04. Still in school, not even a month later, you signed up for the Marines. After graduating in May, YAH YOU, I always knew you would, I always knew you could, you came back home that night. One day we were discussing the choices that you made in your fathers house. You looked me square in the eyes and you said, “I’m sorry Momma, but I gave my word, and now I am going to stick by it.” Only you Shayne Matthew would pick that moment in time to become everything that I raised you to be. A man of his word. You always wanted everyone to go watch you ride your dirt bike. It made me crazy to watch you ride that thing. So fearless, So courageous. Words that have been used by friends who served with you. One soldier told me, “I was scared to death out there. When we went out, I always got behind Cabino. He was fearless, courageous and crazy.” He made me smile. That would be my Shayne, invincible. I treasure my phone calls from Iraq, always once and sometimes 2 and 3 times a week. You always called me at suppertime because you didn’t want to wake me up. Every week without fail. I never missed one call or the chance to tell you how much I love you. In the beginning your phone calls were very detailed and informative. You have always told me everything. I sensed an acceptance in you that you had to be where you were, and that you really had accepted the fact that you may very well die. The war had done to you, my sweet boy, what it takes most a lifetime to learn, and in two and a half months you were all grown up. We ended our phone call that day with lots of I love you’s. It was the very last phone call you made before you went out again. It was the very last phone call you would ever make. Ask what we love most and I can tell you. We love the fact that you are an intricate part of our family, woven into the very fabric of our lives, in your own special design that radiates you everywhere in our lives. You are irreplaceable, irreversible and so deeply embedded into our hearts and souls that you are continously with us and always loved and missed each and every second that time holds. We love you Shayne Matthew! Always, Brandi, Justin, Billy, Zachary, Auntie Heidi, Amanda, Adam, Hailey, Auntie Holli, Mark, Aimee, Jayden, Ashley, Joey, Uncle Markie, Jenn, Matthew, Nannie, Tony and Mommy."

"Hey Bino,

Semper Fi bro"

"Shayne Matthew Cabino, Franklin, MA

I love you Shayne
I miss you Shayne
I wish you were home
I wish Brandi Justin Billy Zach
didnt have to go thru this
I wish Tony didnt have to drive Big Blue
I wish I would wake up from this nightmare
I wish there was no war
I love you Shayne
I miss you Shayne
I wish you were home"


There are some things I will always remember about you. You were a funny, energetic, and bright kid. I can't believe you're gone. Rest in peace, buddy."

"I Miss Everything…Shane’s song
Copyright 2004 Steve Rossetti

Written by S. Rossetti, 11/03/2004, and based on the song
“I Hate Everything” from George Strait.

He was sittin’ there beside me
Cleanin’ his weapon down
When he finished up, locked and loaded
He looked around
Then he looked at me
Said I do believe
We’re needed here
He said I hate this war
And I hate this gun
But let’s face the facts
Marines don’t run
But I miss everything…

He said I know we have to be here
But it makes me think
How I’m old enough to fight
But can’t take a drink
We are the few
We are the proud
I said yes we are
He said I probably ought a write more letters home
Cause my Mom’s awful worried and all alone
I miss everything…

Well, I miss my friends
I miss sleepin’ in late
And the time my best friend Jesse
Fixed me up with that blind date
The smell of Sunday breakfast
Home fries in the pan
The beach and all the hotties
Footprints in the sand
Then he turned away
Stared down at the ground
And said I miss everything…

He said some people say
This place ain’t worth fightin’ for
But I don’t feel that way
They’re just people too
Like you and me
Do you believe
God’s on our side
I miss summer, winter, fall and spring
Christmas, motocross, Pepsi, and ice cream
I miss everything…

Well, I miss my friends
I miss sleepin’ in late
And the time my best friend Jesse
Fixed me up with that blind date
The smell of Sunday breakfast
Home fries in the pan
The beach and all the hotties
Footprints in the sand
Then he turned away
Stared down at the ground
And said I miss everything…

Then he turned away
Kicked the dusty ground
And said I miss everything…"

"Two Young Soldiers

Two young soldiers off to war, so brave and strong,
No fear, well trained, singing their Cadence song.

Two young soldiers on a dangerous mission,
Wasn't that long ago that they had to get permission.

Two young soldiers barely weaned from their mothers breasts,
Fighting for their countries freedom to protect.

Two young soldiers flying their flag proudly,
The explosion happened unexpectedly, so loudly.

Two young soldier's mother's tears are endless,
One sees the scars of war, one feels but sees not.

For one young soldier came home to his country,
And one young soldier went home to be with the Lord in Eternity.

Two young soldiers...

For two Christian Brothers

"Hey Shay,
Well this week has been, lets say intresting, at the least. I have felt just about ever emotion there is to feel or have. I came down to N. Carolina with mom, tony,zach, billy and melissa, auntie holli, uncle mark, nana, ashley, and amanda. Which you know is a trip in itself. Well your troop 2/2 came back home on monday and we were at the base along with the other famlies that were waiting for theirs to come home. When those buses ever pulled into that parking lot my heart just droped and ever tear i ever held back tried to come out all at once, because i knew you wernt getting off and running to us like the other marine's were. So i just sat on the edge of the side walk and just wept and cried. Shay i dont know but you must have had a hand in this, but this marine walked up to me, grabed my hand, pulled me up, asked if i was ok, then looked me in the eyes and as tears started comming down his face said "i know mine isnt comming back eaither" and i just lost it. Every wall and every blockaid i put up since you left this eart came tumbling down. He didnt let go of my hand and just put his other arm around me and we both started crying. I couldnt even get the words to ask his name and i dont know if he knew who i was related to. But i wish and pray and hope that one day his and my paths cross again. That guy in a marine's uniform Helped me so much, more then i could ever even put into words.
Kiddo i miss you more then words can say, more then i can even express. I would just give up everything just to go back to the days where we would go in the back yard climb trees, play manhunt with the neighbors, play with tonka truck under the pourch, try and catch the snakes, god i could go on for ever. but it all i would give up just for one last hug and to tell you how much i love you.

I love you shay
your big brother

"It was 20 years ago when I held you in my arms. You were only hours old at this time. I have never felt a greater love, than holding my babies in my arms for the very first time. Brandi, Justin, Billy, Shayne and Zachary, you are all heart of my hearts. Always my babies. I remember, I feel you in my arms, I see your sweet face, I hold you close. Through tears I smile at the moments I hold on that day you were born and even until the day you took your last breath on earth and your first breath in Heaven. On this day, I leave the place that goes beyond who I am, where I am wrapped in silence, for a moment, to say
Happy Birthday, Dear Little Boy of Mine, Happy Birthday. Always and forever in this life and the next,
I love you Shay. Love Your Mommma"

Amanda,Adam,Hailey,Auntie Heidi,Aimee'
Jayden,David,Ashley,Joey,Auntie Dot,
Popa,Uncle and Jenn, and me had Christmas dinner at Auntie's Holli and Marks. Auntie Holli cooked dinner so she told everybody. Your Mom gave all of us 17x20 pictures of you in your Marine Uniform with a big ribbon around it. She gave uncle a 11x14 picture of you and him, remember when your Mom had your birthday and going away party at the Elks and everyone was there and we all took pictures with you in front of the flag. that was a great day. Christmas was a bitter sweet day. A lot of crying and a lot of comforting each other.It made me reallize that you never take life for granted , I learned that once 19 years ago and had to learn it again but i will never forget it this time. We all went to the cementary after dinner and we sang Silent night and placed our ornaments we had made for you on the Christmas tree that Billy put up for you as well as the other things people have placed there. Then we went over to Uncle Bubbas grave and told him how much we miss him and cried over there. Shaynie there is never a day goes by that we don't mention your name or speak about you being Our Hero and how proud we are of you.Just know that some day we will be together again, remember the vison of the Lions and the Lambs? That was awesome which only proves that God has greater and better things for you to do. I love you ....Nana"

"Hey Shayne,
Uncle Danny and I saw your brother's this weekend for Christmas and I've emailed your sister Brandi and kept in touch with her too. Melissa and Bobby are holding their own. The whole family misses you, I can't even describe the pain we all feel. We've met Herbert a couple of times, he might be coming to visit. He might be able to stay long enough to hang out w/ Uncle Danno for a bit. You must have told him about Uncle Danno b/c they act like they have known each other for a life time. Herbert's a great guy. I am so glad that you met and made a great friend. Please continue to watch over all of us and keep us safe. We will meet again someday, until then always know you are loved."

Its pretty much by chance I even found out you died, but maybe it wasn't who knows, either way, I remember you. It was that long ago, and I remember you. Its a crying shame you died out there, without seeing you're home for a last time. I barely knew you, you were probably in the fourth grade at the time. But i remember you, man.

Its a crying shame."
