I am so deeply sorry for your loss. I just heard a few moments ago of Jerald's passing. I would have loved to attend the visitation. Mine and Thad's prayer's go out to Linda, Mike and the family. I'm praying that God will comfort you like only He can.

Mike, our family sends our deepest sympathy in the passing of your Dad. We had some fun times at the Bloomfield Little League, your Dad sure had a lot of patience in coaching those boys. Our prayers are with you as all the firsts will be sad and incomplete without him. I notice his birthday will be first, then Father's Day. This is for all of us Shepards: Jeff, Kim, Juli (she was a baby then) but loved your Mom at Chapel Hill.

Sorry for the family’s loss. Enjoyed knowing Mr. Gerald and being with him at the Day reunions. Thanks for his service in the Army National Guard. He always made a point to bring boiled peanuts to the reunions. Everyone enjoyed them. Praying for his wife Mrs. Linda and family.
