Shirley, I want to pass on my sincere sympathies to you and all the family members at this very sad time. I know you will have many recent memories to share about Jim at the Saturday gathering, and I have shared some with Alexis which she agreed to read about his Elementary time together with myself. I enjoyed writing this, inbetween tears there were lots of happy thoughts and joyous moments to remember. Best friends never leave each other. Please share my sadness at this time, as you meet to celebraete Jim’s amazing life!
Take care and I will be thinking about all of you on Saturday.
