Gary and I are very sad to learn of Jim's passing. We enjoyed playing golf with Jim and Sandy at Sugar Valley Golf Club for several years. Jim was a great person to be around. Know he has suffered for a long time. May Jim rest in the peace and loving hands of our Lord and Father. With sympathy and prayers, Linda and Gary Miller

It was with great sadness that I read about Dave's passing. He was a fine trumpet player and a good friend. We had many enjoyable gigs together in my band, Bob Gray and Hal Harris bands. My sympathy to Sandra and the entire family on this loss. In time the pain will ease but fortunately the memories will last forever.
