Jim and family, I'm so sorry for your loss. It has been a long time since I have seen you and your family but I cherish the memories of growing up. Mom and dad (Glen & Alleda) always enjoyed getting together with the Potluck bunch. I cherish the memories as you will too! I miss playing Euchre, we do not do much of that now, but sure enjoy it! Thinking of you during this difficult time. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family, with sympathy Darcy (Lutzow) Kothe (Madison, WI).

Jim and family, I send my deepest sympathy at this difficult time for all of you. Years back when all of us were younger we used to ha a lot of good times together. Mary was so nice and always had a big smile and something positive to say. She will be missed.
