Dear Cathy, Mary Lynn informed me of the great losses you have suffered. I have such wonderful memories of Jim, especially of the many evenings at your home the four of us spent playing games and eating from the card/dining table.Your Mom was a very gracious lady and she must of been so proud of you, Jim and Rachel. May you and Rachel be surrounded with comforting arms and great love during this sad time.In my thoughts and prayers, Liz
