    We love you so much and will always cherish all the wonderful times we shared. Your help and care for us before and after our health started giving us problems, gave us comfort and eased our pain. The many things you did for us and so many would make a great book. To write a book would be the only way to have room to explain how much we appreciate your many talents and abilities and all you did to help so many. We thanked the Lord many times for your care and blessed family gatherings we enjoyed. down through the years. Pray for all family members and friends have God’s peace and strength to sustain each one. We love all the great talks , singing, laughs and especially when you came by not long ago and had another great visit. Thanks for having Jesus send a beautiful bright rainbow as you enjoy the beauty and wonder of Heaven!

    He will greatly be missed. He was one of my favorite season ticket holders. He taught me the ends and outs of hockey.
    I am so sorry for the loss of this great man.
    Prayers for his family during this time.

    I was so sorry to hear about the passing of your sweet husband Jim. I had heard so many kind things about him from
    Barbara and Bob over the years. I knew he had a heart of gold because he was always doing for others. I am praying for peace for you and your daughter and entire family. The road of grief has you know is a very bumpy road.

    Take good care of yourself.
