  4. Dear Janet and Family of Jim: We were extremely saddened to hear of Jim’s death. I have always kept Jim in mind, because of my long work history with Jim. He was a fine man and was always very courteous and honorable, and, we did share our funny and heartache moments. I especially admired how much he loved you, Janet, and often spoke highly of you. He also loved his children so much and was very proud of all of them. I never forgot Jim and always thought of him even though we did not stay in touch. May God bless you all. Our faith tells us that Jim is at peace and resting in Our Heavenly Father’s mansion. God bless all of you. With love and prayers, Patricia and Mando Reyes

  6. Mrs. Yaden and family; We want to offer our sincere sympathy to you in the the loss of Mr. Yaden. Our thoughts are with you.

  7. Dear Janet,
    So sorry to hear about Jim. I knew last time I saw him he was pretty sick. I’m caring for a very sick husband so I know what you’ve been through. Probably not much anyone can say to help the grief one must feel.
    as I look around at most if not all my older female relatives who were widowed years before, I know you survive. I suspect I’ll be like them when it happens to me, I just never talk about it. It sounds trite and I don’t mean it to be but have courage and enjoy what you have realizing that we here have so much to be thankful for. Fondly Kathy Bacino

  8. Barbara and family please accept my personal condolences for your loss.
    from Dora and class of ’61’

    You will be missed.
