Nadine and family,
Words cannot express how sorry I was to hear of Jim's passing. It has been a pleasure knowing you and seeing you two together and to have a part in caring for Jim at times at Hillcrest. You know I always teased Jim and tried to get him to say, "Bye...I love you!" but though he usually didn't do it, it was obviously the love you had for each other. I usually shared jokes or made up funny poems, but I thought I'd leave you with something a little more serious this time...

We'll miss the man with eyes of blue
Whose shirt determined just the hue
He always had a grin each day
His wife Nadine would come his way
Their love was quiet--not always spoken
But we all know it can't be broken

Praying that God will comfort your hearts at this difficult time.
