Our deepest sympathy to Karen and all of your family. We were so blessed to have known Jim, and as Jack has said so many times, he wishes he could have spent more time with Jim. We enjoyed our visits when we came through NM, only wish there had been more. Jim's great sense of humor and kindness leaves us with feeling truly blessed to call him " friend". May God's Grace and promise of eternal life give you peace in your hearts. With Love and Prayers, Carolyn & Jack
