Jim and Family, my deepest sympathies on your loss. I remember your mother as full of life, always laughing and with a funny story to tell about one of her recent antics, usually self-depricating. Your parents were wonderful neighbors on Kinney Pike - good people! As we spoke not long ago, the incident with your father, needle and thread and the lamb is one of my more vivid childhood memories. Now both your parents will be missed.

Jim and Pat,

So sorry to hear of mom's passing.  I know she has not been good for some time and is now at peace with your dad.  I so enjoyed talking with them when they attended church.  They were a wonderful couple and will be greatly missed.  Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Sorry for your loss, Jim.  They were part of the neighbors on Kinney Pike!  Your Mom might have been one of the shortest people I knew, but she was tall on smiles and laughs.
