To the Ragard Family - my most heartfelt condolences. Your Dad, Jimmy, and your Mom were wonderful neighbors for the many years we lived close by. They brought life and color to the neighborhood. We had so much fun over the years, Jimmy was a happy guy and had a little room in his heart for everyone. When my gang of friends was growing up, we hung out at Jimmy's Lunch next to the Keystone. Cousin Bud Stiles met Jimmy one day and Jim said "Buddy, I got Rocket Fever", and with that insisted Bud ride up the "3-Lane" in Jimmy's new black&white Oldsmobile. Bud & I recall that & many other stories often. There was more than fun in that guy though. He loved and encouraged us kids across the counter in sports and school. Perhaps it was having a big family, he had understanding and genuine feelings for everyone he knew and when he spoke with you, he expressed happiness or sadness for them. He also was "duty-bound". Funerals are never easy, and Jimmy seemed always to make time to visit grieving friends. So we are losing a really nice guy and a wonderful neighbor. RIP, Jimmy.
(sorry this is so lengthy, wish I could be there to speak with you all)

Please share this with Mrs. Ragard....The two of you were so special to me. I loved our visits at the veggie stand; there was never a dull moment with your stories you shared. Always laughter!! But this past summer was a very emotional one for both of us. I hold a very fond last memory...as I held his hand, he talked of his wife, I got in the car and gave him a big hug and said "love you guys!" Rest in peace, Mr. Ragard! You were the best!
