I feel that I have lost a member of my family. All of you were my family during my years in Spartanburg. I have so many wonderful memories of Jean and Jim. Jimmy, you've always been like a little brother after all the time at the travel agency. Jean and I went on a Mississippi River cruise and it was cold and rained the entire week. We sat in the bar and laughed and then cried remembering Jim. I know the pain of losing a mother. It never stops hurting. Somehow, you just learn to live with it. Cherish her memory and may God help you through this. I send my love to you all.
