We are thankful to have shared a street with Norma and Jim for the last 8 years. Over that time we’ve become friends and are so very sad that Mr. Jim is gone. Jim enjoyed many long conversations in the street with my husband David and developed a special bond with our two sons. Mr. Jim taught our boys all about gardening, butterflies and birds and his love of nature will continue on through them. The attached picture is of our boys excitedly showing Mr. Jim the milkweed they planted to help the monarch butterfly live on. The plant is much bigger now and we will always think of Mr. Jim when the butterflies flutter around it. He will be greatly missed.

I had the privilege of living on the same street with Jim and Norma. I remember Jim walking his dogs by my house, and he was always willing to give me an encouraging word. The thing I will also remember the most , is him riding his motorcycle off onto a new adventure.
