Only met him once briefly with my mom, Jennifer, but he was a joy. Your whole family welcomed us with open arms and we’re so kind and caring, even through a difficult time. Even though my mom’s job was to care for Jim, your family adopted her as one of your own and not only was she able to support you like she would her own family, she could also be supported by you. Thank you for all you have done for her, and on behalf of both of us we express our condolences. Take care❤️

Carol, Nancy & Gary the sadness you are feeling is also deeply felt by the many friends that have gotten to know Jim over the years. I always enjoyed discussing the stock market with him and will miss those moments. May he be at peace on his new path and guided by love ones that have gone before.

It is with deep sadness that I heard of the passing of Uncle "Bud". I have fond memories of visits with him and his late wife Helen and time spent with Carol, Nancy and Gary. No matter the age of a person the years are never long enough for those who loved them. I'm sure that you will share tears of sorrow. May you also share smiles of the moments that you treasure.
Thinking of you all.
