Sending my love to you and Robert and your whole family today to comfort you all in the loss of your father. Praying that the Lord's peace will reign abundantly in your heart, Margaret. I only met your father a couple of times. What I am thankful for is that he and his fellow comrads-in-arms waited at the cemetary on a very cold day to provide military honors and graveside services for Louie. It was an act of fidelity and love which I shall never forget.

We knew Jim through our association with the American Legion. He was such a great supporter of the mission of that organization, that of serve to our veterans and their community. He has left his footprints in our hearts. Prayers to his family as they are saying their earthly goodbyes.
