Our thoughts and prayers are certainly with you, Henrietta and family. We enjoyed Jim's friendly waves to all who drove passed when he was out walking. I looked forward to seeing him and knowing he would take the time to acknowledge the vehicle and smile and wave as we passed. Sincerely, Debbi & Bernie Williams (Rosemary & Luther's son & daughter-in-law)
