I always remember your kindness to my parents from the Brownville days. Jim often stopped in when driving a bus. They enjoyed the kindness both of you showed them. Mom is 96 and lives in a care home here in Crete where I live. Please accept our condolences.

Your husband was one of the nicest men I've ever met. His ready smile and quick wit will be sorely missed! The sadness being left behind is overwhelming, but we can revel in knowing he rests safely in the arms of Jesus. I'm praying for your peace and comfort and healing, Jackie.
