Ray and Margie Hines were expecting their grandson Cpl. James Dillon Shoffner to arrive from Afghanistan Aug. 5. However, the trip was hurried through military channels so he could comfort and be comforted by family.
His younger brother, Joseph David Ray Shoffner, 19, who still lived in New Haven, died Aug. 3 from injuries suffered in a single-vehicle crash.
