My memory is not one I remember but have been told this story over the years. I was a very shy little girl and didn't talk to many people. During a drive to Duck lake, I was put into the front seat with uncle Jim and aunt Cookie. Uncle Jim somehow broke thru my shyness and had me jabbering on and on. Dad says I haven't stopped talking since. Uncle Jim had a charm unmatched. He will be missed.

Like all the Memering clan, Uncle Jim was a kind and wise person with a great sense of humor. I loved our short, but impactful encounters - usually during Christmas in the early days and family reunions in the latter days. I'll always cherish the memories shared by my parents (Elmer and Louise) - they loved you so! Rest in peace until we meet again, and say Hello to Aunt Cookie! Prayers and peace to your family during this difficult time.
