Dear Gail, Jeff, Chris and Marc,
Please accept my heartfelt sympathies on the passing of Jim: husband, father, friend.
True long lasting friendships are rare. But despite the distances Jim was my loyal friend for over fifty-three years. As you go through these sorrowful times, please know that you are in my heart and in my prayers. I share in your grief.
