I met Mr. Shepherd several years ago through our daughter Donna Cox. We invited him to our Thanksgiving dinners, and really looked forward for him coming each year. HE was a fine gentleman and he will really be missed.
I first met Mr. Shepherd in 2006 and he was by far the finest gentleman I have ever met. I will miss his weekly calls and history lessons. We will miss having him at our Thanksgiving dinners. He was like part of our family and we all will miss him greatly. May you rest in peace my very special friend until we meet again!
My husband and I have wonderful memories of Richard over the last year. We had some great "road trips" in my new car around town - he loved a new car! What a gentleman! Jackie & Lee Berry
Mr Shepherd was a fine man. Very astute and giving. I met him 20 years ago when he walked in my office downtown. He always wanted to know if I was exercising, tell me about how far he had walked. Often would take any new car I purchased by to show him. He would hop right in for a ride. He will be missed but not forgotten.
In the short time I had the pleasure to meet him, he was a real hero and such a brillant person. I only wish I had more time with this wonderful gentleman.
Mr. Shepherd was a true gentleman. I always enjoyed seeing him when he attended the alumni events at the law school. He will be missed.
