  1. My family and I are so very sorry to hear about your loss. Jim was one of the most kind hearted men I’ve ever known. Our prayers are with you all.
    With Sympathy,
    Lori Barbato and the Parco family

  2. Bill, Marianne and families: Please accept our sincere condolences. We won’t be at visitation or the funeral – we are heading out of town for the coming week. Your mom and dad were some of the first people that welcomed us warmly into the 6th line community and we always enjoyed visiting with them whenever we ran into them whether it be in a driveway, on the side of the road or at church – just super nice people. It sure isn’t easy to say goodbye to a parent. I never remember your dad without a grin and I just bet it was ear to ear meeting up with Rachel again. With sympathy, Bill and Betty Watson

  3. Memories are special at a time like this. I had such great visits with Jim and Rachel at work . Thinking of all of you at this time.
