Nancy, sending heartfelt sympathy in the loss of your Jim. Sending condolences from Bob Dufek family. Bob left us in 2013,, Mom in 1981. Memories of Mrs Karl’s specials Jim & our Mom would pick up. I personally haven’t seen you Nancy & Jim since 1986 were we sat together at my father in laws retirement party. May our Father send his peace to Jim’s family at this hard time of missing him. Sandra & Steve Valdovinos

Aunt Nancy,
So sorry for your loss. Our prayers are with you and your family. This is a hard time I know. Uncle Jim gave special memories to many people. I remember canoeing up the trout stream with him off Highway S. One of those days I will always remember.
