Rest in Peace Jim:
Know that we are here, and will always be there for Mitch; he’s an amazing young man, a wonderful son-in-law, and we love having him in our family - you and Barb should be proud. πŸ’™πŸŒ·πŸ’™

Jamie really was a tender person. He used to stop at our house frequently to visit with me when I was married to his brother, Steve.. I feel very sad that he was not able to overcome his illness.
