For the last 2 years I had the pleasure of knowing Jim and we had a lot of fun together. He was a great man and I will miss our laughing and going out together. Im so thankful he came onto our lives and we treasured the time we did have with him... Mark LaVally

Thank you for being such a wonderful stepfather and the best grandfather to my children. But most of all thank you for finding my mother and loving her so much. I hope the two of you are slow dancing in Heaven.
