Sorry to hear about Jim & Lorna. Our family has shared many wonderful memories with them and you...Amy Stephanie & Craig. Starting with Christian Fellowship, Keister pig roasts, singing along with Jim playing the guitar. Tupperware with Lorna and those occasions when we'd just run into each other. Sorry we couldn't make it to visitation this evening. From our families yo yours, take care. Know that Jim and Lorna will be missed! David & Judy Taylor...Craig, Lisa, Leslie, Sonya and Betsy and our families.

Oh kids. So sorry to hear this. Know it is bittersweet to handle. But at least you know their suffering is over. Loved the years with your Mom in Tupperware and such good memories. Cherished the memories of the years afterward . Thoughts and prayers for all 3 of you. Love and peace for you.

I loved Jim and Lorna so much. I sure hate that I hadn't seen them for awhile. Thank God they are together again. I am praying for the family.
