Grandpa not a day goes by were I don''t think of you! I miss you so much and I wish you were still here. I love you so much and I hope to see you again someday. We still cry over your pictures. It still doesn''t seem real. I''ve been keeping up on my solitaire so when I come up there I can possibly take you on and win a game! I love you grandpa.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Rita & Family: My condolences to you all. Rita, you and Jim were such wonderful neighbors to my Aunt Fern and Uncle Art. They always spoke very highly of you both. I know they enjoyed the get togethers of the "Madison Street" gang in later years after all of you had moved to different places. I will share Jim''s passing with my uncle when I visit him this week. God''s blessings to you all.

To all. Jim over the years always was someone I looked forward to seeing. Mostly up north, but also at all of the get togethers in Beverdam. My heart goes out to all of you. I will never forget my time shared with Jim and was truly honored to have been able to spend the last two years at deer camp with him. Sorry I could not make the service, I was there in my heart. Gods love and peace to all of you. Dave Richmond and Family

Dear aunt Rita, What can I say when you lose your best friend of 50+ years. My prayers go with you and the kids even though I can not be with you in person. I will always have fond memories of uncle Jim ( dressing up as Santa, taking us out on the boat, the amazing crafts he cut out for you.) His big grin lighted up a room as he walked into it.
