Jim,
One of my favourite memories is when you and Di, myself and Rich went to Florida with Hank and Mickey. It was so nice on the beach, after sunset, just the four of us walking in the sand and talking with the waves crashing ashore, finally stopping at the beach side restaurant for wings and beer.
I hope good memories help to comfort and heal your heart.
Hugs to you and the kids,
Terri

I remember when you first met her, Jimmy and you were going to 'woo' her. And woo her you did. Diana was probably one of the nicest and most genuine people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know. Although it's been quite a few years since I had seen you guys I know to me she will always remain the one and only "Lady Di". She will be greatly missed by all whoever had the pleasure of knowing her. My heart goes out to you and the kids. Huge hugs to you and the rest of the family.
