Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. You and Jim have so many wonderful memories over the last 63 yrs. I hope that Fred and I have as many years together. Jim was a very special man and you have been a wonderful Caregiver to Jim. Try to catch up on some much deserved rest. We love you and hope to see you soon. Please call Fred if there is anything that he can do for you. Once I am up and on the mend we will have to have lunch or dinner together. God Bless You, Paula & Fred
