Memories Timeline


  1. Our friendship of over 70 years was a very special part of my life. College, early marrieds at reunions, family get togethers, and wonderful visits at both ends of the country. Jim and Dee were friends also and that was extra fun. Special memories will be with me always.

  2. Rest well with your beloved Jim. I was so happy to have had you in my life and will be ever indebted to you for bringing Jill into this world and all the Goldies into my life. We will forever remember you.

    Those who touch our lives, stay in our hearts forever.
