    Dear Dianne and Johnny and Family;
    I was so sad to hear about the passing of your me years ago, "Uncle Jim"
    Although it has been many, many years since I have seen your Dad (or you guys for that matter), I have so many wonderful memories of all of you, including your Mom.
    I remember your Dad's wonderful, kind and generally quiet nature...and his distinctive, hearty laugh!
    May YOUR wonderful memories help to comfort all of you at this difficult time!
    My Sincere Sympathy.

    Just wanted to send our sympathy to you, Andrea, Brock and Dylan, following your Dad’s passing. We are not able to make the Celebration of Life on Saturday.  Obviously your father led a very active and interesting life. He will be missed by family and all who knew him.
