    This is so sad for me to post..
    I’ve been told it was Leonard Shepherdson inside the car. Apparently he is unaccounted for, and the car was parked in his driveway. I’m praying it’s not him.
    Leonard and I shared a home during the 7 years I lived in the North.

    Betty and I also send our regards and condolences Debbie. In regards to Jan. 13/11 I’d like to be there (Superior Court) but between getting called back to work and a new stove being delivered that day, I just don’t know. I will try.
