10th Anniversary of Shep's Passing
On October 16 , 1999 the world lost a voice like no other. Jean Shepherd passed away in Florida where he quietly lived alone after the passing of his longtime companion and wife Leigh Brown the year before. It's hard to believe 10 years has passed, but it is good to see his memory live on with the tremendous success of "A Chrismas Story" which is opening on stage as a musical this Christmas Season. No doubt he's keeping all our ancestors entertained with his stories at this very moment.
