Xavier’s Funeral

The Shepley family has seen their fair share of tragedy. As some of you may know, Genny’s brother died in a tractor accident in 2012. Unfortunately, her oldest son, Xavier, was shot and killed early this morning. Xavier was only 21 years old. He was a sweet and caring boy, loved by many. He held a special place in his grandparents, Gary and Judy’s hearts.
No one thinks they will ever have to bury a child. Please donate to help cover some of these expenses that Genny will have to incur. Thanks for your support.
