Please accept our condolences on the death of your father and brother. We would have been there in person but we have made our home now in Las Vegas and couldn't make the trip at this time. Our prayers are with all of you.

Sorry for your loss Kuhn Family. I will always remember Jim riding around in his convertible while I was growing up and waving. I am sure when he arrived up to heaven he got in that car and picked up your mom. He was a great man! Brian Meyer (Schaumburg, IL)

One of my favorite memories last summer was sitting on our front porch one Sunday afternoon, when a stranger parked in front of our home, walked up our drive, and introduced himself. It was our privilege to meet and share memories with the original owner of our home. He was so kind to grace us with his stories and memories. We share our prayers with the family and friends of Mr. Kuhn.
