  3. Gloria and family: we are all saddened by the loss of Jim. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Dale and Jan Brandes family

  4. Gloria, it sadden me when I heard the news. Jim was like a brother to us. Prior to you getting married, our house was his second home. He would always know when to show up for dinner and ask the questions, how did you make this….or that. So he could try to make it himself.

    May you find peace in the Lord.
    God Bless.
