    Dear April and Family,
    We are so very sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. Very hard to believe that this happened. Jim was a friendly person who loved his family and would offer advice to anyone who needed it. Covid is a horrible disease and everyone needs to take it more seriously. Even tho Jim had both shots he was still unable to fight it and Covid won. Jim will be sorely missed by his family and friends. May he Rest In Peace and watch over everyone and keep them safe. I’m sure his dog Sasha was waiting for him on the rainbow bridge. Love to All of the Family. ❤️❤️ Marlene & Terry
