I'm so sorry for your loss! Your dads kindness when Dan was sick was so touching! I know from that experience and how giving Edie is, that Jim had to have been a caring and giving person. Take time to mourn and remember him. I'll keep your family in my prayers. Mary Jo Rodgers

So very sorry for your loss, Jean and Edie, and the rest of the family. I know it's hard on all and for Bill to loose his only surviving sibling. May God's loving grace hold you in these hard days ahead. We will all reunite someday in that beautiful place, Heaven. What a reunion that will be. God Bless!
