Was so sorry to see you lost your wife, Diane. I remember meeting her at one of Werner Kade's parties. She immediately talked to me like an old friend. Hope the Thompson Center reopens later this year and we can all meet again to play cribbage.

Jim - My deepest sympathy for your loss. Diane was a class act, an intelligent, warm and witty woman. When you introduced her to Bobby Rammer and myself and we golfed together she treated us as if we were old friends.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
