I offer my most sincere condolences for the entire family. The loss of a family member is always difficult. I hope and pray that you all may find some comfort in knowing that Jim spent many years, but most importantly, his last years, surrounded by those he loved and cherished, and may you find peace in knowing that he will no longer suffer, while rejoicing in the thought that he has reunited with those who proceeded him in the Kingdom of Heaven.
