It is hard for me to express how sorry I am for the loss of your dad. Mr. Jim was like a second father to me. Pam, you and I grew up together. I have such fond memories of our childhood and so many of those include your dad. It seems like the two of us spent every weekend together for most of our childhood. The weekends at Bayou Benoit I will always remember and will forever be in my heart.

Lean on your friends for strength, and always remember how much you are cared about. I love all of you all so much.

Dad, how I would give anything for one more Judice Inn hamburger shared with you; or even a short time to tell you how very much I love you and how dear your memory is and will always be to me and my family. You are and always will be a #1 Dad ~ I know you are resting now and am at peace knowing that you are reunited with MomMom and Poppa. I am thankful for the time that God let us have you. All my love forever,
