I was married to Neal Shepherd - I have a 14 year old son with him - his name is also Sam Shepherd. The Sam Shepherd I knew back then was a firecracker - and so is my Sam now.
I miss Vivian dearly - her sweet blue eyes - and I think of her often. She helped me with Sam right after we had him, we moved in with her after Sam passed. She enjoyed Sam so much when he was a baby. I can picture her on the couch at the farm in Greenville - watching Jeopardy... love her...
