Mike and the entire Steffens family I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I hope the days ahead will bring stories of joy and laughter replacing the sadness and void that Jim leaves behind. I know he was a rock of your family, husband, father and grandfather. My thoughts and prayers go out to you all.
