    I spent a very sad and upsetting day today as I just found out that my friend of 55 years passed away on Sunday. Jim and I grew up together since we were fifteen (he was older😬) after school we went to work , him at Adams, me at the fur store. Through the years Mr Van taught us how to fix and do things then Jim showed me more. We went for coffee every day at the Pink Lantern. After Jim left Adams we tried to continue but alas we drifted apart but would still run into each other. Through the years however he was my best friend, he was always there for me and we were always there for each other. I will miss you my friend but Rest In Peace. I will always remember our memories and we will never forget your snow angels👍
    Norma, Scott and family our thoughts are with you.
