Deklan and family, We are so sorry for your loss. Prayers for comfort and healing knowing that your Dad is no longer suffering. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Hope to see you on the pool deck in a couple of months. Devin Lamb and family.
I saved every penny I had to buy my first car off of Jamie in 1995. 1974 Chevy Nova, straight 6. Prayers to the family. He was a great guy.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. I always said if you needed someone to help with something you could count on Jamie to be there. Jamie gave my dad a Golden Retriever when dad was facing cancer himself. Dad named her Holly and she gave him the reason to get on with living. Jamie was also there in the worst weather with us when dad buried her. Hopefully all of you will remember all the good times and gain strength to get you thru the difficult days ahead. Love Don and LuAnne Steenhoek
