    I am so sorry, Deb, to hear of Jim’s passing. I know how special Jim was to you. Like you said, “I was lucky to have him for as long as I did!”. I’m sure there are a lot of great memories for you to remember. Continue to talk about him, telling stories about your life together. Let people know how good of a man he was. It was wonderful hearing about the two of you, the other night. Please know that I’m here for you. I’m only a phone call away.

    Remember…Jim will be with you forever! ❤️

    Dear Deb, I just read a quote from a poem by Emily Dickinson I would like to share with you : ”Unable are the loved to die, for love is immortality.”‘ Brian and I are here for you please remember that! We love you!
