Dear Kris, Carrie, Matt & Nick and the entire Yakich Family:
Our heavy heart goes out to all of you. Jim was an outstanding person, the best Dad ever! and he will be deeply missed. Thoughts and prayers are with all of you. The fondest memory that I hold dear is when growing up in our old neighborhood in Bay View, Kris and Jim were like the only parents I knew that weren't divorced. Carrie would invite me over for dinner in their big house and everyone would sit down as a family, eat and talk to one another. The family bond they all shared was so incredible, and 39 years of marriage is something you don't hear of anymore. The fond memories of Jim will always be with me.
With all of our love,
Jen, Thor & Faith-Rae Hansen
