Mary Ann, we want you to know that you are in our many thoughts and prayers at this difficult time!! You and Jim were by far one of the best neighbors we have ever had. You became like substitute grandparents for my children at a time when they needed it most!! We love you both very much and are so saddened by Jim's passing. We will stop by with lots of hugs and kisses very soon and speak of the wonderful memories that we have of Jim. Love you!! XOXO
