In my earnest desire to give the utmost in memorial and respect to Mr. Shipman, it is my estimation that in doing research on him, his life, his excellence in his service to President John Kennedy, I feel if Mr. Shipman had lived, and served in his normal capacity as a Secret Service Agent-had he been in Dalls on November 22, 1963, I believe our beloved President would have LIVED ! Rest in peace honorable man and thank you for your service.
