Our deepest sympathy is extended to all the family in the loss of your husband, father and grandfather. I worked, with Jim at Mast Lepley and he was a wonderful hard working man, always giving and willing to go the extra mile. He was kind and caring to all who knew him. May you all cherish the great memories you shared through the years.
