Lana, Jim, Debbie and other family. Please accept my sympathies on the loss of your dear loved one. I first met Jim well over 30 years ago when I started work in Belleville. He was always warm and gracious to me and always had a great smile. I enjoyed knowing him and was proud to consider him a friend. Sorry that I could not make it to the service personally. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
