    Dottie, So sorry to hear about Jim, it was unexpected. You too were vey special friends and I regret to this day that we lost that friendship. Although I will always cherish our trips together and the good times we had. Hawaii, Florida and Gatlinburg will always hold a spot in my heart. Jim will still be in every buddy’s heart. He is now in his resting place and watching over you.

    If there is ever anything I can do for you please do not hesitate to contact me.

    I graduated with him in 1968. I went into the military and lost contact with him. God bless you always.

    I don’t think I have seen you since we graduated together some fifty plus years ago. Nonetheless, I wanted Dottie to know that even though you were not in my life after we left Moeller, I know some of your friends who kept up with you and they always spoke highly of you and Dottie. May you find great peace in heaven.

    Jim, I am completely heartbroken but have comfort knowing that you lived a wonderful life full of great adventures with those you loved. I am honored to have met you, my life is enhanced by having had you in it. And although you are no longer physically with us, you will be with me on all my future travels and adventures. Thank you being you and for giving me some of the greatest memories in my lifetime. We will continue to take care of Dottie – she is wonderful person.

    My dear Bro you filled my life with laughter, laughter and love for 47 years. We have travelled this country and around the world. We were insane in our twenties, Crazy Dincs in our 30’s, worked hard on our careers in our 40’s, focused on travel in our 50’s, lived the full cycle of life and back to being crazy old farts in our 60’s. Because of you I met the sister I never had and that is your sugar Dottie, my sis from another mother. You, Dotti, Bradford and I shared so much together as framily. As you said when the four of us were driving on our California trip many years ago “This is great I have such a sense of family.” All my love bro and hug your mom and dad for me. We are all here for Sissy.

    What was so memorable about Jim was his huge smile and fun personality. Whenever we talked he had a twinkle in his eye and was full of fun. He was a gentle soul and you knew this was someone who would help you if you ever needed support. We will miss him dearly. You both are in our thoughts and prayers. Heaven obviously had an opening for a sweet gardener.
