    Dear Joan and Family,

    We are so sorry for your loss. We have such wonderful memories of Jim when we were in Buffalo. We learned so much from Jim’s wonderful gardens. He was a master of gardening. Jim had a wonderful sense of humor and he was fun to be around. He also was a wonderful husband,father and friend. I know he will be missed.
    Warm regards,
    Rachel and Dale
