To the Hines Family,
So sorry for your loss. I appreciated Mr. Hines sense of humor. I remember him from our annual neighborhood luncheon in April 2012. I also remember him jokingly trying to keep my writing pen when I was collecting signatures for a neighborhood petition :) May the Father of all comfort give you peace.

Dear Jimmy, and Hines Family,please accept my deepest sympathy. My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief.
Jimmy, our Dads must of known each other. My Dad also graduated from Cathedral high school, but in 1948. I don't think we ever quit missing our parents. I lost my Dad 24 years ago and I still miss him. I love the pictures of your family. Looking at the pictures of your parents in their youth, it is obvious where all of the Hines children received their good looks. I always loved your family. You were one of those wonderful, big, Catholic families that everyone admired. (or at the very least were jealous of) I remember the fun You, Joani Crabtree and I used to have joking around in High School. My heart goes out to you and your family during this difficult time.

Jim was and will remain an inspiration to me as a fine, always pleasant, gentleman.

Dede & Meme your father was a fine man & a true gentleman. I am sorry to hear of his passing. I have fond memories of bumping into him on Friday's at Barringers for lunch and enjoying our short conversations. I also enjoyed being his neighbor for the short time I rented the double next door. You are in our thoughts and prayers. God Bless you all. David Ruhmkorff
