Uncle Jim always made sure I was smiling or laughing! Spoiled me rotten but would get after me if I was naughty! I cut my foot once and he brought me in a bunny and let me feed it lettuce so I’d stop crying. He always loved animals. Uncle Jim, Grandma Marge, and Grandma Ma all had KINDNESS in common. Unconditional love.
I'll never forget all the fun times when I and usually Kevin too would stay all night at Ma and Uncle Jim's house. Jim was living proof that you didn't need a whole lot of money to have a whole lot of fun. WOW did we have fun going there. We're going to miss ya Jim. Hugs and kisses to you Michele as I know you are going to be lost without him. Love, LuAnne and Donj
