Dear Peggy, Jack, Tom, and families: We are saddened by your loss of Jim, and will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. Jim had a friendly way on our occasional encounter at family events.

Dear Peg, Jimmy, Terilyn, and Mom, Very heartbreaking to have lost a dear brother, son, husband, father and grandfather. Always look for signs from him. He is free from suffering now, yet those left behind suffer in not seeing him or talking with him. Our hope at this time is that he is in peace and that we shall be one day soon too. Love to you all, Carole
