Dawn, We’re so sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. He was such a great guy. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. Linda is living in Utica now and has no car, so she probably won’t be able to go to the services. I know she’d really like to be there for you. You’ve always been there for our family at times like this. Much love to you, Dawn. ❤️🙏🏻
