Hi Beth,
So sorry to hear of Jim's passing. I know that you did all you could to help him & ease his pain, but it's never easy to loose people that are close to us. Though I didn't know Jim well, I know that since you chose to be his partner, he must have been a great guy.
Our thoughts are of and with you....
Take care of yourself,

Rich & Ann Marie

I have a fixed memory of seeing you and Jim at the Portola State Park camping trip. You had just gotten together and I remember you embracing by your camp and looking so much in love. It struck me so intensely. I am so sad for you.

I would see Jim shopping at Draegers. He was happy and never in a hurry. He always was patient with the employees even when the lines were long. I will miss him. So sorry for your loss Beth.
