  1. Sometimes there are just no words...Thinking of you and your family with sympathy and the hope that time will bring comfort to your hearts.

  2. I was shocked to read this! I have been away for 10 days. I cared deeply about Jim. He was SO lonely without his love, Kitty. Now he is with her again and happy,
    Please accept my sincere condolences. Jim and I had many long talks while at our mailboxes. He was a wonderful neighbor and friend. I will miss him very much.
    God rest your soul Jim.
