  5. Evelyn, I regret that I never had the honor of meeting you, but my heart broke when I heard of Jim’s passing. He was such a kind-hearted and gentle man, and I very much look forward to reuniting with him on the other side! I was Teresa’s first husband, and I was there when she was first reunited with her dad whom she had not seen from the time she was an infant. What a joyous reunion it was, but there will be another even more joyous reunion which neither distance nor death will ever disrupt.
    Tim, Tammy, Teresa, Brad, Matt, & Katrina, my deepest condolences and heart-felt prayers go out to you all. Dave Altis

  7. Oh Evelyn – we are so sorry to hear of Jimmy’s passing. He was quite a nice man. We always enjoyed visiting with you both. Living at Town House was the best, because of you two. I will keep a memory of Jimmy- him sitting on the balcony in his chair enjoying the sun and a cool breeze, healthy and happy. May you find comfort and peace in your memories. God bless.
