At my brother Al´s funeral mass, when I reached back to give the handshake greeting to Jim, he followed that up with a big ol´ kiss on the lips. I don´t think Cyndi would mind me saying, "That was Jim!"

Our condolences to the family for your loss. We are sending virtual rib-crushing hugs of love to all. Extra-long, edging on uncomfortable, hugs to Kim, Evie and Ezra. (Kim is also my boss) Hold onto happy memories. Stay safe.
