Jim and family, It is with such sadness I have to write this note. Chris was one of a kind...and Mr. Jim. you met your match in her, which says alot. I am so honored that I had the opportunity to know her. What a sense of humor and laugh. I am so sorry that I will not be able to join you on Saturday. My daughter and son in law have their annual bull sale on that day. And I know that Christina and you both understand that family thing.
I'll be showing up on your door step Jim so I can get one of those big ol' Jim hugs.
Please know you and your familiy are in my prayers.
