    My sincere belated sympathies for Sheps’ passing. Very sorry for your loss. The last time I saw Shep was in Matheson for my parents (John & Jean) 50th anniversary celebration at our MacKenzie family reunion…. and we all loved to hear him sing! He will be fondly remembered! Hope everyone else is doing well.
