said the teen was struck by a car on Church Street at about 6:30 p.m. on Friday.
Jeff Chylinski said he went to the skate park nearly every day after school with Shayne.
“It was one of his favorite places, so I thought it would be nice to have all his friends come, be like a memorial for him,” Chylinski said.
Shayne’s friend, Ethan Roy, said he was in disbelief when he learned that Shayne had died.
“I couldn’t control myself. I didn’t know what to do. I was bawling my eyes out,” he said. “He was probably the nicest kid I’ve ever met.”
Friends and family of Shayne Wrobel gathered on Saturday to share hugs and memories of the 14-year-old.
“I don’t know the circumstances of the accident exactly. I know that he’s not with me anymore,” Shayne’s mother, Karen Lee Wrobel said. “I want children to be more aware of what’s going on around them.”
Wrobel said she and her family, including Shayne’s twin brother, have the love and support of so many around them.
“We just remember the short time we had with him, what he did for us. It’s not easy. No,” she said.@: http://www.wfsb.com/news/25663952/detail.html
