Linda, Robin, Jimmie, and your families
I am very sorry to hear about Jim passing. He was a good friend and Christian brother. He will be missed very deeply. I pray God wraps his magnificent, caring, loving, comforting arms around each of you steadying you through this grief. Please remember our faith and know that Jim is in Jesus arms. We all will see him again when we go home to join him with Jesus. God bless each of you. My prayers are with you all.

I was deeply saddened when I read Jim Glaspell's obituary. As all of you know it was just a short time ago that I was writing about Mary Glaspell's passing, both being childhood friends. My thoughts and prayers go out to all that knew and loved Jim as well as Mary. Best wishes to all as you go through these difficult times. As I have lived in Florida for many years I never had the priviledge of knowing any of their children but please know my thoughts are with each of you.

May God help & guide you through all of this...the loss of both parents so close together. May Uncle Jim rest in eternal peace in God's Kingdom. Our love to all your family, Garry, Rosanne, Mitchell, Aspen, Chanelle, Halston & Ellen.
