Mary Ann, I am so sorry about Jim.
I remember him picking you up at the Y sometimes and having dinner with you before I moved to CA.
Jim was very sweet, with a quick smile and a true gentleman.
I hold you and your family in my prayers.

Uncle Jimmy always made us laugh. His sense of humor lightened up even the most dreadful events. When seeing him at church a while back he made light of my little purse and asked, "Whatcha got in there, a phonics book?!" He was so proud of my Aunt Mary and the kids and grandkids. I will miss his stories, jokes and the love he had for all of us. Rest in peace Uncle Jimmy.
