    That was a lovely obituary, Jenny. May your father, my brother Jim, rest in peace. He was a good man. Now he can renew his relationship with his wife Judy. I will miss my phone calls with him. Love to you always, Aunt Gloria

    Uncle Jim used to send us to the little mom and pop shop store for “Dentyne” gum when we were little and he always gave us extra to buy candy. One day he gave us a 1 dollar bill and told us we could keep the rest. That was huge amounts of money to us back then. We came back with fistfuls of candy, but somehow forgot to get the “Dentyne” He was always kind and patient with us. Rest well, Uncle Jim.

    So sorry for your loss Jenny. When we were little kids living in the Cities it was always a big event when our handsome bachelor uncle came for a visit (this was before he married Judy). I think me and my sisters all had a little bit of a crush on him. He was a good hard working man and he will be missed.

    Your cousin Dawn
