Shiflett Family,
We all grew up on the same street so many years ago. Too many memories to post them all. Enjoyed staying in touch and always running into Jennings. Beautiful service at the church today, not surprised to see a full house to send Jennings off to his new home with the Lord, he was just that kind of guy. God Bless

Dear Shifflett Family and Lois
Nothing but great memories of both your Mom and Dad. Uncle Jennings was that generation of veteran, husband and father with a house in suburbs and kids, holidays, fishing, birthdays, family reunions and cars. And all those memories will live on for generations to come. What a good long productive life he lived.
