Dear Dona: It has been a long time since we attended Osawatomie High School together, but I just wanted you to know I was thinking of you during this time.

Jim (Soup) was a great guy from a great family. I have many memories of the fun times as we were growing up. He was the older brother that was always there. I send my sympathy to Donna and the family. Also to Ron, Don and Tom

Couldn't have asked for a better host Dad and I thank God for allowing me the privilege to know him and all the wonderful McCutcheons. Since meeting him I see bridges under a different light! Assured that he is now free from this physical realm, we keep you all and your families in our prayers. Lots of love,
