I am so glad Jim got his final wish, to pass at home.  Bless you all for making that happen for him.  He was indeed the kindest of souls.  That ever present smile was his trademark.  Thinking of you all at this difficult time.

Dear Marsha, Trina, Deena, and Peter,
Melissa called about Jim.  Wendy, Andy and I all send our sympathy to all of you.  No matter where life has taken us, the sense of finality of someone's passing is still a lot to bear. There are still good memories and the kids remembered Ballreich Potato Chips! Peace and blessing to all of you. Sally Pinchock

Rest in Peace Jim. We have many fond memories of times spent together. Son Mike remembered the camping trip taken by the baseball team in the Ballreich Chip Truck to Mohican. Jim helped coach the team. Our sympathies go out to the extended family. He was definitely one of the good guys with the goofy grin. So long old friend.
