hello Marg and Allan this is your old friend from years ago when we were growing up. We played so much in our younger days and we had great fun I'm your old friend Betty Van Panhuis {nee Heslop) who lived down the road on Appleby. Jim could hit the baseball over the trees at your place and we had to find the ball!! Just wanted to see you again but time factor and distance kept this from happening. Doug my older brother past away 2 years ago and maybe they are meeting again. Take care of yourselves and maybe we will meet again, much love to all ---- Betty

I wish I was able to be there today to share in the celebration of Jim's life. He was the most amazing and fun loving cousin. He will always be in my heart and I will miss him. Love and hugs, "cuz" Cathy.
