Jim’s life was a life well lived.
-As we pass thru the grand adventure called life, some of the triumphs become warm memories, the mile stones turn to stepping stones and then to tombstones. We love and remember and say thanks before the relationships and people who mean so much wane with the mists of time and we give the final thumbs up. – Jim Seehafer, Feb 2016.
