We read the obit for Jim in the weekend paper and were so shocked. So thankful that we ran into you, Brenda, and know that you have had some difficult days. Jim will be missed ... loved the time we got to spend with the two of you, and loved his wonderful sense of humor. Our love and prayers are with you.
