    The Raw family in the U.K. are both shocked and saddened to hear of the recent loss of Jim.
    As total strangers, Jim and Carol welcomed us into their lovely home way back in 2001. Instant friendship and immense hospitality was the result. Magical memories of happier times. .

    With our love to Carol and all the family at this time.
