Dear Family, I am so sadden for your loss. May our Dear Lord be with you through this time of sorrow. There are a few memories I had with Mr. Imes. If I were at the front desk in the mornings, we would joke on going out and playing golf sometime during the day. Or we would talk about the game(s) Ohio State may have been involved the day or weekend before. One day (a few years ago), he took a walk out the back and I was having lunch and watched him, then ended up driving to where he was walking to give him a lift to which he kindly said, "he was out for a stroll". And for each night I would leave work, he be sitting in the lobby and bid me a farewell and good night. Being a few days and I miss saying good night to him. Now he is with our Lord and spreading the news about Ohio State while taking a little stroll. Rest in Peace Mr. Imes.
