    I can’t believe it is almost 2 years, There are times it seems like just yesterday. I miss you so much! I love you more than words can ever express. Tomorrow would be our 48th anniversary Oh how I wish you could be here to celebrate. You will always be in my heart and on my mind, until God calls me home to be with you again. Until then I will always love you and cherish our memories. Love you, Joanie

    Knew Jim as a 17 year old STAR Basketball player! He was a quiet, polite, fellow classmate newby to our high school. Never pompous, always rule conscious, you could pack 50 of him into a classroom and it would still be every teacher’s dream!
    Blessings! J. (Ranheim) Coltz
