    Dear Mary Ann, Jamie and family. Our sympathy and prayers are with you.

    We requested that Father Dean say Mass for Jim and for Mary Ann.

    Eternal Rest grant unto Jim, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. And May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
