John Ira Petty
Johnson Space Center, TX
Once again, the hearts of all of us at the Johnson Space Center go out to the Shepard family.
Louise Shepard was a very special person. She was a constant source of strength for Her husband, Alan, and a valued, effective advocate of the human spaceflight program from its inception.
We send our deep condolences to her three daughters and the entire Shepard family.
