Darlene and family, Sorry to read about the loss of Jim. Tho' we were cousins, we did not have much connection -- except in high school -- where he always sat behind me in homeroom -- my name was Diedrick, too. (Elmer & Martha were my parents.) He had a great sense of humor and liked to tease. May all your memories of happy times help you during the difficult days ahead. Blessings, Char (Diedrick) Steenis
I am sorry to hear about Jim. The Diedrichs were a special family in the third ward and good neighbors. Jim and I had some good memories together. He was an excellent baker and my family enjoyed the times we had a chance to have a taste of that good bakery when he visited his mother who lived next door to us. I have many memories of times I spent with Jim at Lake Lucerne and at Packer games. I extend my sympathy to you and your family in the loss of Jim. ......Porky
Jim, Thanks for all the free donuts at your Mom's house. When Mark and I were kids and playing basketball in your Mom's driveway, we always knew there were donuts on the counter in the kitchen. Thanks for showing me how to get nightcrawlers for fishing too. You taught Mark and me how to run the water hose and the electric stick in the yard so we could round-up the nightcrawlers for fishing up 'Nort in Crandon!
Jim, I will miss you everyday. I will also miss our daily talks.
Sorry to hear about Jim. Our prayers are with you and your family.
