Beloved Husband of Elizabeth Carol Dickens Shipp

Junior had left his house to go check on the cattle. My sister told him to wait and she would go with him, he went on without her. After she got dressed and went outside she seen him laying next to the garage, when she got to him, she noticed the little puppy he had gave her 2 weeks before, laying on his chest. When she removed the puppy, she noticed he had shot himself in the heart. Her life would never be the same.
