I was so hoping to be able to come to the funeral home and express my sympathy to you in person, however, the best laid plans sometimes fail. Jim is headed to Newark today and I am going to Delaware with kids. I have fond memories staying with you at your house and speaking with your mom. May God wrap his loving arms around you.
