It's always sad when you lose touch with loved ones; and even sadder when those loved ones are no longer with us. I'll always remember Uncle Jim as one of the funniest men I ever knew growing up; and in the Whetsel family, that was saying a lot. His little brother, Bob, was my dad; and he was also quite the comedian...more often than not when it wasn't appropriate. I can only imagine how they drove their sister, my Aunt Jeannie, half-crazy as kids and teenagers; as she always seemed the serious sibling in the bunch. I can still remember doing more laughing than anything else whenever Uncle Jim was in the room (or should I say 'working the room')? Those were good times. So good, that I remember telling my wife, who never got to meet Jim or Janet in the more than thirty years that we've been married, to make sure that we always sent them a Christmas card; because of some of the great memories I had as a kid. Losing Uncle Jim almost two years to the day that I lost my dad almost seems to make sense, in a way. To Janet, Tim, Jim, and family, our deepest sympathies.
Ron and Deanna Whetsel
