Dear Jim, We remember when we came to visit you and Earlida in 1968 and you and Virgil built a larger cage for the monkey. Then as our daughter Brenda, one and a half years old stood sucking her pacifier and looking at Suzie, the monkey reached out and grabbed the pacifier and started sucking on it. We also remember when you came to MI in ’96 and our son Doug gave you the wild ride on his motorcycle. You were always young at heart. We have so many special memories of you.

I love you and will see you again, Bonnie

All Of Our Love, Virgil

Uncle Jim,

You always had a smile and a hug for me. Thank you for being so special in my dad’s life. You were like a father to him and he often talked of how much that meant to him.

I’m planning on seeing that smile of yours again and getting another hug. You’re my

best uncle. To all the family, I want you to know you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Love & Hugs,

Laurie
