Not sure what to say?

An old friend from Thurston Hollow, and neighbor in the 50's. Jim could ride a bicycle, standing up backwards. I was walking home from school one day and Jim had mustered out of the army and went straight to Turrel motors and paid cash for a new 1952 ford pickup. He pulled up along side of me and said "hay kid, Want a ride?". I looked at the odometer and it had 7 miles on it. The distance from Tunkhannock to home. Many good time together. I will miss You Bud.

Miss you, Pop. I love you.

Sorry for your loss our prayers for the Sickler family. James the true grit guy, Korean war veteran and all, 64 years marriage, raised a good family. God Bless you and comfort you in your grief and in celebrating your Dads life.
