Dear Bob and Diane and family - our sincerest condolences on Jim's passing. I mostly knew him from his time at Royal Terrace where I would often visit him and talk with him about how I knew his family! He only had good things to say about the food and his care at Royal Terrace and he was always so pleasant and gentle. May many happy memories of his long life help to sustain you all. From Paula Blagrave and family.

So sorry for your loss, Bob. I have many fond memories of your family from when we attended the church just up the road from your farm. Your family was so good to ours, and I know where a tremendous encouragement to our parents. After Dad died, your parents took our mother 'under their wing,' and made sure she was able to attend church and community functions that she would not have otherwise been able to attend. (and, your Dad taught me how to drive my first farm tractor when I was 5 or 6) You guys are in our thoughts and prayers. Ron and Phyllis Montgomery

I am so sorry for your loss, Bob and family. I only knew Jim through Bob and Diane, and he was obviously a wonderful man. You are so very fortunate to have had so long with him, and so long a time to build the memories that will be in your heart forever. I’m sorry that I can’t attend on Wednesday, but know that my heart is with you.
