Norma, Michael, Wendy and family.   I am so very sorry for your loss of Jim.   Jim was always ready to stand with the Richwood Honor Guard for Veteran Funerals and so many other Veteran-related events.   I appreciated his willingness to be there when I called upon him.   May God watch over you all during this most difficult time.
