Aunt Ann, Kari, Steven, Bill, Jennie and your families, There are no words to say that will ease the pain of loosing your husband and father. We are so sorry. I was glad that Mom , Ron and I was able to visit with both of you a couple months ago. I still remember as a child staying with you all once in a while at the farm on Barber Rd. I will always remember his big smile and the sound of his laugh. Uncle Jim was my favorite uncle growing up because even though I was just a kid, he always would say "Hello" to each of the kids that came and went when we were at Grandma and Grandpa's. Just wanted to let you all know your in our prays
today and tomorrow especially. A big hug for the family...
Love you all, My Mom Agnes and Ron, Charlotte, Mary Margaret, and our families.

Sorry to hear about Uncle Jim's passing, prayers go out to the family. He was a good man, served his country & well respected. I recall on a visit back when the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico was going on, he was problem solver so concerned, he was discussing the plans he drawn up to stop the oil and said he sent to the President. He will be missed, but remembered.
