    Jolaine, Steven, David and Joleena and your families….I am so saddened to hear of Jim’s passing. I have such fond memories of your family and I always thought the world of all of you!! I wish I had known sooner as I would have loved to have made the trip from Regina to attend the service and pay my repect. You father/husband was always so warm and kind and just had that charisma that attacks people! I remember how incredible kind he was to Sister Fortier when he was her home teacher. He was a gem! She would tell me all the time how much she appreciated him! Truly someone I have always held in high esteem! My prayers will be with you through this difficult time. I know that you take comfort in the knowledge that families are forever! What a wonderful blessing the gospel knowledge we have is to all of us! Know that although I am not there with you, I am mourning with you and praying for you. If there is ever anything I can do, please let me know. I’m living in Regina and married to Ray Clayton. You may remember him as he was probably in the Stake Presidency when you lived here. Call anytime, and I will do whatever I can for you – I love you all!
