Pat, Aaron and Paul....I did not know you well, but I have known you for years....and one thing I do know with absolute certainty is that my mom and dad (Cass and Bill) absolutely treasured their relationship with all of you...they thought the world of your dad/husband....Jim.....and always talked about what a good soul he was. They always considered themselves very fortunate to have "such wonderful neighbours".
We cannot imagine what you are going through...we do believe that your strength as a family will get you through this, and Jim will be smiling from above on the people he loved.
Take good care of yourselves. Love, Deb (Mitchell) and Larry
