To the Bateman family--
Sorry to see that James has passed away. I was Manager of the Pella of Evansville Division of Lensing Wholesale from 1971 to 1982. My family also lived on Stringtpwn Road just North of Stringtown School for almost 30 years.
Having buried my own 1st and 2nd Dear Wives, I do know how to and will PRAY for your family during this DIFFICULT time.
Godspeed James and God bless and comfort you all
