  18. Kelvin and Angie :

    Dear Terry, our hearts go out to you. Jim was an amazing person, as you are yourself. We enjoyed so many runs with you two, and Boomer, of course. While we live so many miles away, we have thought of you often as we enjoy runs in the forest by our farm. We had a private celebration of Jim’s life with a run, dogs in tow. Jim and Boomer will be with us all in spirit. Jim has left us the best gifts he could have- that of friendship, kindness and laughter. May God bless Jim and Boomer as much as they blessed us all.
