Linda and family,
Sorry to hear of Jim's passing. I remember his generosity of spirit during and after high school and his Austin Healey 100/6.

I am so sorry to learn of Jim’s tragic accident. So easily can I remember Jim’s smile and hear his laugh from our days at BJHS. He truly was a good guy and I’m sure that he will be missed by so many. My condolences to you, Linda and Denny, and to your families.

So sorry to hear about the death of your dad, Scott and husband, Linda. Thoughts and prayers are with you from the staff and students of Lakin Preschool. Judy

So sorry to hear about Jim. I was reminded of the time that you and I won a contest at Central JH and were the lucky ones to have dinner with Mark Hazara at Snuzzles. Our husbands were polite but it was an awkward night for both of our spouses.
Please let me know if you need anything.
I'm here for you and only a mile down the road.
