Dottie and Roger, I'm so sorry to hear about Jim's passing. I am continually grateful that I stumbled across 1309 Malbay Drive some 20 years ago when I was looking to buy a house. How lucky to have the seller of my house also be a good neighbor afterwards! Condolences to you both, as well as the rest of your family. Sharon Horky
