We are so sorry for your lost. Jim was a very good friend. We spent a lot of time on Ball Diamonds. He did a lot for the Little League. And coached one of the girls traveling team. To Mike and Lori we will be praying for. And to Cindy will be thinking of you and praying for you. Jerry and Jane Marshall
