Dear Mike, Johnny & Amy,

I'm terribly sorry to hear about your dad. He was and will always be "Uncle Jim" to me, Jen & Greg. I reflect on some of the wonderful memories, like those runny pancakes at Scarborough Beach, breakfast at Peg's (aka: Barbara's) before "biddie" basketball, and grilled English muffins. And how could I ever forget the Uncle Jim impersonations we'd laugh about. He was a good guy and we'll miss him.
