My sincere sympathies to Prue on the passing of her beloved Shep.
I have only known Shep for a few years but loved him as friend
His suffering was not fair, but he put up a tremendous fight to stay with you Prue
Love you

From the age of 9 you instilled the love for basketball in me and for that I’m eternally grateful. Your infectious smile and classic one liners will stay in my memory forever. Rest peacefully Shep, you fought one hell of a fight and left one hell of a legacy behind. Sending love to Debbie, Kim and your families

Those you love don't go away,
They walk beside you everyday,
Unseen, unheard but always near,
So loved, so missed, so very dear
Wishing you peace and comfort,
courage to face the long days ahead,
No longer in your lives to share,
But in your hearts loving memories always there
All our prayers and thoughts are with you during your time of sorrow. So sad love Zoe Roger Robert & Christopher XxXx

Alan was an extraordinary gentleman, authentic to the core. I sailed with Alan across the Atlantic Oceans & on the Sydney to Hobart race. He had a gentle way of creating stability in times of turmoil and really knew how to connect with people.
He is now in a better place.

Never before have I felt such a loss of a friend as I do at this sad time. Although we met only six years ago such was the impact of your friendship it could have been a lifetime. Karen and I will remember you forever and cherish every moment spent with you.

Shep you were one of a kind, you had a huge impact on my life when I was growing up, from teaching me basketball, life lessons and much more! I am thankful for everything you have done for me over the years.
I am so sorry this has happened to you but I am grateful for the times I got to spend with you over the last year!!! I am so glad Nixon got to meet you too.
You are an inspiration to me and I feel richer for knowing you!
Rest easy! Lots of love Danni xxx
