God Bless! I knew Jim from Burges High School and St Paul's Methodist Church. I knew Ann and missed them when they moved to Cal.
Please know that I care.

I had the pleasure of meeting & talking baseball with Mr. Parker at the Diablos baseball games many years ago. In fact, he taught me the basics of how to score a baseball game, which I still do from time to time. May God bless you and your family.
