Judy, I am very sorry to hear about Jim's passing. I still think about you guys a lot. Remember when I came to your house in New Jersy with my Beta and he did not make it. I still remember waking up to his wooden replacement. If you ever come to Arizona, please feel free to come visit my children and I. We would love to have you. Thank you for taking me in to stay with you while I was in college.
