Your mom was an inspiration to many, as she fought through her illness. May her gift to you be the gifts of strength and love.

    Dear Jim, It was with great sadness that I learned of your wife’s passing. I know what a brave fight she fought and you were far more than a loving husband and daddy; but also a valant soldier. marching along with her in her battle. Anyone who has ever known you, Jim, was touched by your great love and devotion to your wife and family. With deepest sympathy, Carol Urick
