So sorry for your loss. Growing up as neighbors I spent a lot of time visiting, hanging-out, and of course watching the Midcap Girl Band with Jim watching over all of us. Very fond memories, and Barb marrying into the family to my Cousin Ronnie. Wish I could be there.
Much Love & Sympathy for the entire family
