Dan and Jon,
Our hearts go out to you for your loss of Sel. We can sympathize with you because we, too, lost the head of our famly. You never quite get through it, you just learn to focus on carrying on the wonderful blueprint of life Sel has left behind for you all and try to follow with your families.
Your dad had such a giving heart and a tremendous knowledge of the world well beyond his formal education. A trait that was hugely admired. Focus on those things.

In time, the pain gets
better and the love ❤️ and memories go on. God bless you all mighty.

The Shepherds
Carolyn, Cedric, Jason and Jessica
