The children of Bob and Ellen Sheldon will celebrate their parents life this weekend at the Old Cabin Shop that sits on the property were they were found murdered last October 11th.

The memorial will be held from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday October 11, 2009, at the gun and archery store the Sheldons operated at 155 N. Black Powder Lane, just west of Carthage.

One of the Sheldons sons says that they have been keeping the store open in honor of his folks because that is what they would have wanted.

Prosecutors allege that Matthew Laurin, 20, Springfield and Darren Winans, 22, Jasper, stabbed the Sheldons and their dog to death when they broke in their home looking for weapons to trade for drugs.
