Dearest Pat, I know your heart is broken. It was evident how much you loved Jim. You made sure he was taken care of in every way. I am so sorry for your loss. Hes in Heaven looking down on you and blessing you.

Dear family, my prayers go out to you all. Jim had so many talents and always had something good to say about everyone. I feel blessed to have known him and will miss his warm wit and cheerful outlook.
