When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure. Our hearts, thoughts and prayers are with you. May God give you comfort from His Holy Word, the Bible. “He will swallow death forever, and the Sovereign Lord God will wipe away the tears from all faces.” Isaiah 25:8. “He wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:4 Please accept my deepest condolences.

I am very sad and will miss Jim. He was a good friend for so many years. We enjoyed and looked forward to playing cards together at Mom and Dad's. Each of us gave as good as we got, when it came to picking on each other. Know that Jim always had a place in my heart.
