Not sure what to say?

Whiting, He always let me and my brother fish off his dock when we were kids. I will never forget that. He was one of the kindest and nicest people I have ever known. It was an honor to know such a man. My prayers and thoughts go out, to the family.

Dear Family.My deepest sympathies to you all in the loss of your loved one. I was in grade school, junior high, and high school with Whiting. At Oakwood school, We played on the football and basketball teams their. We played in the stars of tomorrow tournaments.We were close friends throught out life. When we both returned from the service along with another friend Bert Field. We all returned to Lenoir rhyne College at that time and graduated. He was a true hero in my book and I will...

My heart is broken Dad. I miss you so much.
Thank you to everyone for showing your love and support at this time. It means more than you know. Thank you especially to my best friend and husband Dana. Sometimes you make me wonder if I even deserve you!
With Love and deep appreciation for you all,
Adrienne Shuford McCann

Whiting's service to our country speaks for itself....he was truly one of our heroes and served "above and beyond" in his contribution to our freedom.

To all my Shuford relatives, I grieve with you. Whiting was one of the kindest, sweetest people that I have had not only the privilege to know but also call my cousin. With all that has happened, I am eternally grateful for the long conversation we had at the last family reunion. He was a thoughtful introspective man who had empathy for humankind. God's speed to Whiting!!

Adrienne I am so sorry for your loss. I know words cant help with pain but if you need anything you let me know. You and your family are in my prayers. With all the love in the world, Julia and Misty

Dear Family,
I am sad to hear of the passing of Whiting. This man was generous to many over the years and I am honorored to be one of his friends during part of his journey. My thoughts have turned to him many times over the years. His service in Nam molded a good deal of his life and he will always be appreciated for that. He is one of our 'wounded warriors'. Remember as I shared with him; "YOU HAVE NEVER LIVED UNTIL YOU HAVE ALMOST DIED". Blessings and Peace to each of...
