    Twelve Crosses (Matt McQuinn) demo

    Walking hand in hand
    Nothing but blue sky ahead
    Following their dream to be
    True love never dies.

    Leaving the Buckeye State
    Their hearts just can’t wait
    Traveling towards the setting sun
    To make their home by the mountain side!!!

    Chorus:
    A match made in heaven
    Both hearts tied and bound
    They look into each others eyes
    They sit with out making a sound
    And Then he whispers “I Love You”

    Suppose to be a night of fun
    Plans changed by the sound of the gun
    Hit close to home and our hearts
    A true love torn apart

    Sammy and Matt were meant to be
    We pray for all the families
    Who were involved in this terrible plot
    We mourn for those who were shot

    He was her protector till the end
    The fallen hero, Matt McQuinn
    Bullets flew for a senseless cause
    His soul now returns to the Gods!!

    Chorus:
    A match made in heaven
    Both hearts tied and bound
    They look into each others eyes
    They sit with out making a sound
    And Then he whispers ‘With his dying breath’
    “I Love You”

    Bridge;
    No!!!! They could not see!
    Smoke filled theater,
    How could this be?
    Innocent lives taken in this Colorado land
    12 Crosses lain by this evil man!

    Aurora shooting victims: Heroism and heartbreak as last moments revealed

    McQuinn was confirmed late Friday to be among the 12 movie-goers killed in one of the worst mass shootings in American history.

    re.

    The 27-year-old was among the 12 moviegoers killed in one of the worst mass shootings in American history.

    His girlfriend, Samantha Yowler, 26, survived with a gunshot wound to the leg and is in fair condition after undergoing surgery. Her life was saved by the quick actions of McQuinn and Samantha’s brother.

    Nick Yowler, who had joined the couple for the midnight screening of “The Dark Knight Rises,” was unharmed in the shooting.

    “Both the Yowler and McQuinn families thank everyone for their concerns, thoughts and prayers during this difficult time,” the McQuinn’s lawyer, Robert Scott said in a statement. “The families ask for everyone to be patient and respect their wishes during this very difficult time.”

    McQuinn and his girlfriend, both Ohio natives, met as co-workers in a Springfield, Ohio, Target store. They both transferred last November to another Target location in Aurora, near where Nick Yowler had been living for the past ten years, the Dayton Daily News reported.

    McQuinn “was a great outgoing person,” a co-worker at the Colorado Target super store told The News. “We lost a great person and we still can’t picture or realize that he’s gone.

    Matt McQuinn’s last living act was to shield his girlfriend from the hail of bullets sprayed by the gunman behind the Aurora, Colo., multiplex massacre.
