Diane: As you know, Jim's death brings to the end a lifetime friendship. Growing up in Homestead Park, this friendship developed and we were again re-united when you and he moved to the Heshbon property. Jim will certainly be missed- especially those many long phone conversations. It was amazing how many topics were discussed-many relating to the various illnesses.But now he has been set free. Know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and all the family at this time as always. When you need us, we are only a phone call away. All our love. Rich & Lura
