Dear Peggy –
My sincere sympathy to you and your family on the loss of Jim. You are in my prayers.
My thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time. Buddy and James shared the same suite at The Elizabeth House. James was so quiet and Buddy was yelling “Tillie” every few minutes. I hope he didn’t disturb you too much. They are both at peace now in the presence of God. May they both rest in peace. My prayers are with you.
Peggy and family,
We’re so sorry about Jim but know he’s not suffering now. We’ll miss him walking the mountain with Ginger; perhaps we could help walk her now? Gus will miss watching for them every morning, but he will come to visit when we come that way. Anytime you need comfort and caring, we’re only a few steps away and will come help you anyway we can.
Paul and Leone Alexander
Peggy, I am so sorry to hear about Jim. I enjoyed all the trips that we shared together traveling with Toney Tours. Jim always was such a humble and caring man. He will be missed by everyone. You have my heartfelt sympathy. May God bless you and comfort you and your family during these trying and difficult times. In christian love, JoAnn
