AS I look around my beautifully landscaped home I see signs everywhere of Jim and Ryans wonderful touch. It will always be a visual reminder of how well he treated Mary and I and how we will miss him

Meredith, Ryan, and Pamela;

Jim was a very special friend. We will really miss him but will never stop thinking about him. I've known him for 57 years, since the beginning of 7th Grade at Sherwood Junior High when they divided the students into two classes A - L than M - Z. He looked at me and said I've never been first. In his lifetime he changed that.

Love and Prays,

Sherry Fiore
