Dear Donna, I am so sorry to hear about Jim. He was such a wonderful person. I am so glad I had the opportunity to know him. You and Jim have always been so good to me , always positive and kind whenever I saw you. You know the old saying,"People will forget what you said to them, they'll forget what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel". You and Jim have touched so many lives including mine. Thank-you, Stephanie Rice
