  3. Hello there Penny its Cathy (from Watson Timbrmart),I just heard today and I just wanted you to know that I have been thinking about you today and will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I have to say you both were a joy to wait on at the lumber yard, we had our fun times and fun moments (when you and Jim would disagree on things that you thought you needed but he didn’t think you did !!). Those moments will always stay with me you both are great people, and even your doggy! So Penny he will be truly be missed in my eyes.

    Penny and family,
    I was so sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. I will miss his opinion on books and authors greatly. Jim was always my go-to guy on what was well written and what wasn’t. My sympathies to your family.
