My Dear Phyllis - I am so sorry to hear of Jim's death.  I will hold you in my thoughts and prayers.  I will never forget this sly smile as he put his hand in his pocket and came out with the goodies for us at the library!  My love and sympathy to you and family.  Noreen

Phyllis and Family:  So sorry to hear about Jim.  Just can't believe that it has been 65 years since we graduated from A.L.  Jim was just about a month older that I am.  My health is wonderful - had thyroid cancer in 2007, outside of that, I am feeling great.  My first husband (Elmer) passed away in 1984, and I remarried again to Joe in 1991.  We are now living in Greenfield, MO.  My prayers go out to you!!

Phyllis and family - Sympathy to All.  May the years of memories be yours to cherish.  Jim's picture was just like I remembered him with that smile.  As you probably know, I lost Carm in January 2013.
