She was a beautiful angel that has left us with a remembrance of her beautiful and loving ways. Jerline was the person whom anyone could go to with anything. And I mean anything!
She raised many children with a strong and loving heart. If you called her, she would answer, if you knocked at her door, she would let you in, if you needed a hug, you got one. Jerline had a beautiful soul, and she was always available if you needed guidance.
She had a wonderful sense of humor. Jerline would always say things that that would brighten up anyone's day. That's the love that this woman had for everyone.
We will love you forever. Miss Shepard rest in peace, you were a beautiful angel, you will be so missed by so many. May you rest in peace sweet angel.
