Jim my Godfather will be truly missed.I can still hear his distinctive laugh, and feel his easy going nature. I have so many special memories as a child and into my teens spending time with Jim & Marilyn & the kids. They were extordinary friends to my parents David & Joan Pozorski. Even after we moved up North we continued to spend time with them. Wether camping, fishing or just hangout (our parents having a beer and us kids getting to have soda & what seemed to my Brother & I, limitless candy) I will never forget those times and how special he and the whole family is to me. I am deeply saddened and can only hope that some of the families memories can give them peace in there loss. Love to you all Marlyn, Ken, Keith & Cheryl❣️
