Condolence: We would like to extend our condolences to the Shields Family. During this difficult time, you can take a measure of comfort in knowing that our Heavenly Father has planned a wonderful future, in which we will never have to part with our dear loved ones, (John 5:28,29 and Revelation 21:3,4). It is our sincere hope that these divine promises help sustain your family in the days to come.

Condolence From: Turner Conley
Condolence: Very sorry to hear about Gene's passing. The last time we talked to Gene he wasn't feeling well but wasn't worried about it. We had a good visit, talking, laughing, and reminiscing about old times. Gene was kind hearted and cared about people. He made our beloved dog a tomb stone and would not let me pay him for it.
Gene and I have been friends all our lives. I miss Gene already just knowing he is not here anymore.
