So sorry for this family's loss. Jim was like a 2nd father to me and like the rest of the family, my heart is hurting. But knowing that Dad is at peace, whole once again and pain free helps with the hurting.
Wish I could be there in person to say my goodbyes but am definitely there in person!
My family sends hugs and condolences to your family! Love you!
