Aunt Marcella, Tina and Jimbo,
Spending time with your family each summer are some of the memories I cherish and rely on when I am sad. Uncle Jim's passing makes me sad but I am smiling thinking about the fun we had. I was blessed to be a part of the family and I hope you know how much you are loved. You are always in my heart!
