I am very sorry for the loss of this beloved wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She was a truly special lady. She always made me feel welcome in her home. I have wonderful memories of that time in my life I shared with the Sheppard family. May God grace you with his sweet, remarkable grace in this time of mourning. Much love to you all.
