    We are really glad we got to see Jim and Dory a few years ago at the Blue Moon in Petersburg. A lot of years have passed since Jim stood up for us at our wedding. May you find some comfort in knowing he is not suffering any more.

    Dear Dory,
    It was wonderful to meet both of you in Wuxi, China on your arrival in April 2003. I envied you, as you got to stay – what an adventure! I know you became very good friends with Kiri and later with, Simon. Kiri always kept me updated, and it was so great to see both of you again in Shanghai, October 2004. Thank you for your emails this past year. I will miss Jim and I will always remember him, laughing and enjoying life.
