    My sincere condolences on Jim’s passing. Always enjoyed our rare visits,
    especially my last visit in 2005, I think, when Jim greeted me at the door “Louise, it’s the old man” referring to my dad. Always hard to lose family, but Jim even more so! Great husband, dad, grandpa and cousin. Love to all, Cousin Jim from Chicago.
