So many memories that weren't shared. Jim and our dad were great baseball players for the Palmer town team. Jim told me his batting average was over .600. When I was quite small, (Jim was 12 years older than me) Jim decided to drive the tractor thru the creek. It took two of our uncle's tractors to pull it out. A while before Christmas, he would put a red coat on and peak in the windows, going from one to another while the kids would run from window to window to see "Santa Claus" peaking in to see if we were naughty or nice. After high school, for my vacation enjoyment, I would go to the farm and help him plow and do chores. Virginia's cinnamon rolls were the best!

Aunt Virginia, Ann, Pat and families, Uncle Jim was so loved! I vividly remember 4th of July weekends on Jim and Virginia's farm, playing in the pasture with cousins, sleeping in a tent on the yard, and lighting off fireworks. Some favorite memories of childhood. Uncle Jim's sense of humor and his ability to focus on you and make you feel like the only person that mattered in that moment are what I remember and cherish.
