Chris, Sorry to hear about your Dad, I remember when he let us go motorcycling with the XR 75's in your back yard off Lincoln rd. and was he was working on some cars in the garage. He reminded me of John Wayne with his deep voice and him calling you Duke when he needed you. Take care and remember the good times. Nick Sieverin, wasn't able to make Mass at St. Mary's but my mom went for the family.

I never really got to know Jim & Joan until the last few years of my mother’s life. They visited my parents, Clem & Marge Adams, several times at Sherwood Forest Campground in Arkansas. After my mother passed away, my dad moved in with me in Florida, Jim & Joan became frequent visitors to my home, and Dad & I spent many happy times visiting them at River Ranch. Jim was a larger than life man in stature and personality. Dad once said that walking into any room with Jim was like walking in with the mayor. Everybody knew him and loved him. And his heart matched his personality. His kindness to my dad and pleasure in my dad’s music brought much happiness to Dad in his final years. Rest In Peace, cousin Jim, and enjoy the music with Joan & Marge & Clem in Heaven!
