I well remember the Shepherd family from New London School days. Tom was a classmate of mine.
Also our phone was provided by their home switchboard. A Christian family, and a blessing to all who knew them. My thoughts and prayers to each of you during this sad, difficult time and beyond. Hopefully your treasured times together will help sustain you in the days ahead. Blessings to the entire Shepherd Family.

Mrs Ebert was one of the many Sunday School teachers my siblings and I had at Fairlawn UB in Kokomo. She was a very kind, compassionate and giving person and had such great love and faith for her Savior. She will be missed. Praying God embrace her family with love, comfort and peace.

Virginia made a difference in my life and helped shape my walk with Christ. I know heaven and Harry are rejoicing but this world will be a sadder place. Thank you Virginia for all that you did for mammaw (Zetta Longfellow) and me!
