We will love Uncle Jim always and will greatly miss him. Many wonderful memories for Jay, spending time as a young boy on the farm, with his grandparents, Uncle Jim and Aunt Lou and his cousins. Our boys, Cody and Casey, also have memories of visits to the farm and tractor shows with their Great Uncle Jim. We shared laughter, joy and sorrow with Uncle Jim and Aunt Lou. We shared meals at the diner in town! Delicious! We love you, Aunt Lou. We will pray for you and for all the family as you grieve and heal. May God comfort you and give you His peace. Jay, Bridget, Cody and Casey Grove
