“My farewell to everyone; if you are reading this, I have already gone and all will be missed. I thank the Lord for all that I have been blessed with. For what short time we have here, should not be wasted on stupid things or piddly things. Enjoy what time you have been blessed with and always remember to do unto others as you would want have done to yourself. “
“Even all the little things, thank you. You need a hand, just ask and I’ll be there. If you need anything, I believe I’ve made peace with the Lord and once again where would I be without him. Just remember you only have a short time to live here. Please try to enjoy what you have left. It’s just me and thank you so much...” Sheppard, Buck (Walter)
