    Dear Wendy,
    Lea and I were saddened to hear of Jim’s passing. Bobbi Jensen informed us a few days ago. We only met you and Jim a couple of times but Stobies are great people and I knew Clara, Gordon and Betsy very well. It’s always hard when we lose a partner especially one so young but fate intervenes with our hopes and plans. It sounds like you both had many wonderful times together and you’ll always have those special memories. Believe me when I say he’ll always be there for you in your heart. I still think of Astrid every day. I’m sure Jim is already with his mom and dad and he’ll be taken care of. We wish you all the best in getting through these dark days and remember Jim is watching over you all. Love Lea and Lindy (Thorsen)

    Dear Family,
    Jim’s Grandmother Hazel was my step-mother for her last 15 years and Betsy was the treasured step-sister I never had. Distance prevented us from spending a lot of time together but I did get to know that Jim was a wonderful person and part of a caring and delightful family. God bless you and keep you.
