Joyce, thank you for reading the profile. It is always gratifying after working on a profile, to have someone actually read it. Thank you! Pa Sheppard (Allan) died when I was three, and so, I have no memory of him. But my aunties have vivid recollections of him, and my grandmother provided many stories before she died. I'm so glad we (Pa's descendants) have the stories. The history is rich! Thank you again for reading Pa's profile.
