    My condolences go out to the family. Roland Sheppard was my oldest brother. I’m going to miss him very much. GOD allowed us to have him for a short time and then He came for him. Praying that the Peace of the Lord,, will comfort you at this time of lost. As I/we reflect let us remember the good times that me had him with. Remember all the laughter, the smiles, and all the things that made him who he was. A son, brother, father, husband, uncle, nephew, and grandfather. I’ll you miss you, brother. May God bless and keep your family in His care. Love you, family.

    It has been a year since Roland went to be with the Lord. Our hearts and still broken and a part of us is still missing, but through it all God remains faithful and for that we are truly blessed. Thank you all for the condolences, the flowers and the care you have provided to me and my family. Your kindness will be forgotten.
