My sympathy on Mr. Morf's passing. We would see him every time we at at The Fun Factory, Hawkeye, Iowa when it was open. He always made a point of speaking with my then very young son who is now 18+. They would have fabulous conversations while Mr. Morf ate his meal and we ate ours. My son thought Mr. Morf was his bestest friend.

Sorry to hear of Jim's passing last week and I send my condolences to you and family. I vividly remember Jim, Carol and you thoughout my childhood, going to country school together, celebrating Christmas and birthdays, and playing in the grove between our houses in the summer. Jim always had a talent for building things and he inspired me to develop a love for building and woodworking. Your Mon and Dad, John and Ada, and you "kids" were great neighbors!

So sorry for your loss. I have many fond memories of Jim and always enjoyed his visits. The conversations were usually focused on cars, tractors, or farm sales. He was a big influence on me throughout my life and he will be very much missed.
