We were so sad to read about Jim's passing and please know that our prayers and love are with you Phyllis and the whole family. Jim was the kindest and God loving man whom we got to know through our Christianity and of course at the Yankee Clipper! May you find peace and warmth from our Lord and have comfort until you meet again in Heaven.
