  • Wear so sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. I have many fond memories of his teasing me and calling me Broomie…after the cartoon character Broom Hilda. Only he could get away with that. I remember the last time that I saw Jim a few short months ago. He was at Dads farm and he always had time to chat and catch up on the latest family news. He will be missed. Please know that your family will be in my thoughts in the coming weeks. I wish you peace and the hope that your memories bring you comfort.
