An update from Shep's family: Since the news is beginning to spread here on Facebook and elsewhere, Shep suffered a bad stroke on Monday. The outpouring of concern and well-wishes here and elsewhere has already been overwhelming and very much appreciated by his three sisters and those of us at his side. He in been in stable but critical condition, and the next few days will be vital to his future. Shep has always been a private man when sharing details about his health, and he is unable to communicate now, so we must do it for him. Because he is loved and considered a friend by so many, we will pass along any news once there is definitive word to share. Until then, please keep him in your thoughts.
