Will miss Rhonda's laughter and great stories at our wives' lunches & Subvet meetings. Always enjoyed her company. We will miss the memorial service as we will be in Ohio but will be thinking of Jim and family.

Lew, Words can not express the sadness I am feeling for you. You have always been like family to me, and your beautiful wife was no different. Rhonda and I shared a book near the time of her sons passing, The Shack by Paul Young. We found comfort in it. Let me know if you would like a copy.
Sending all my love, thoughts & prayers
