Mr. and Mrs. Shepley were 2 of the sweetest people to Mark and me when we served CAW as Worship Pastors! They were always positive, encouraging, and gracious to us as we served! Kindness was always a part of their conversations with everyone! We counted it a privilege to know them!

I'll never forget meeting Mr. Shepley for the first time. I was introduced to Mr. Shepley by his long-time friend Malcolm Skinner, whom I worked for until his death. Mr. Shepley had the warmest smile and handshake along with so many words of encouragement. I always looked forward to stopping by the office and checking in on him! I will miss those times but will hold the memories forever. I will truly miss him!
