Le Sheppard married Mary Jane Tettemer having Margaret Pearl Sheppard - Maggie P.


Growing up, there was always music in the air around the holidays
(and all year round) being surrounded by talented artists and musicians.
Whether at Granny Fulmer's - or in our Sheppard home back on the farm -
or up at Uncle John and Aunt Skip's - someone was always playing the piano
(Uncle John, Dad, or one of us). Sure there was plenty of singing hymns and songs
and harmonizing gathered around the piano - and at times there was even a
string ensemble - but the best for me was hearing Pop on the piano alone
and playing for himself - simple and heartfelt (my Father's and his brother's
musical and artistic legacy). This music reminds me of those times LINK\

and my Mother's brother Roy Fulmer with 3 women sitting around the piano
at Granny Fulmer's in Cold Point.

Dad
How do I write what I can't say 
It's not that easy 

You can dry my tears or make me smile 

What can I do for you 

I love you 
There I said it 

Such a friend you are 

You're there for me 
And I you 

All I'm saying' 

Will you always ... Be my friend

As hard as I try
It doesn't work

The words don't come out right

I take my pen
And try again

To put in words how

I need you
Please promise

Never to go away

You are my friend
Now to the end

Forever

And ever

You and I

You make me feel

Like I can do

Most anything

I hope I do
The same for you

You'll always

Yes always

Be a part of me

You'll be my friend ... You are my friend

my violin

he didn't know what to say
he even had to turn away
but when the words came out
this is what I heard

when I go take my violin
and play a song for me
when I go take my violin
and play one just for me

what would I do with a violin
I don't know how to play a thing
but I thanked him anyway
what else was I to say

he said it wasn't worth a dime
I said I hope it's never mine
he shrugged his head turned to me and said

yeah but when I go
take my violin
and play a song for me
when I go take my violin
and play one just for me

what should I play
just make it a melody
make it as sweet sweet as you and me

he didn't know what to say
he even had to turn away
but when the words came out
my father said to me

when I go take my violin and
play me a melody
when I go take my violin and
play one just for me

"This is the one form of government where the residents who are being represented
by those that are elected can actually reach out and touch their elected officials
and have a discourse. It would be nice if more of that was to take place"
Upper Makefield's Township Representative Bud Baldwin

"More than any time in recent history, America's destiny is not of our own choosing.
We did not seek nor did we provoke an assault on our freedom and our way of life.
We did not expect nor did we invite a confrontation with evil. Yet the true measure of
a
people's strength is how they rise to master that moment when it does arrive -
The streets of heaven are too crowded with angels, but every time we think we have
measured our capacity to meet a challenge, we look up and we'
re reminded that that
capacity may well be limitless. This is a time for American heroes. We will do what is hard.
We will achieve what is great. This is a time for American heroes and we reach for the stars"
Aaron Sorkin, West Wing ("20 Hours in America": I & II; aired September 25, 2002)
