Some think that love is defined by the things we accumulate in this world. The truth is that love is felt in the small things like a tender kiss on the forehead, perhaps it’s the spark you see in the eyes of your mate. One thing is for sure is that love can be felt through the warmth of knowing that you are loved unconditionally. Karen my dear, you were loved unconditionally! Until you embrace each other again, please know that you still put a spark in his eye!❤️

I Think one of the Most memorable for me was to see how Jim put a spark in my dear Sister. Watching the love between the two of You was heartwarming. Danny and I Loved the times We got together, and the memories in Moran Kansas at Hope Chapel. Jim, enjoy Your eternal home with Jesus. You made it Friend! Diane
