    Laurie and Family

    We are so sorry to hear that Jim has passed away and that he was so ill beforehand. Its funny we still remember him winning all the watermelon seed spitting contests when we were building our fences (seems like one hundred years ago). And remember that card game you both taught us (where you play with 3 decks). Miss those days!

    Take care of yourselves and if you want to get together sometime email me or call 225-2528. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Lil Serack and boys
