Marge, I don’t know if you remember me or not…..I used to work at Pierre and so did my daughter, Shari Bice. I also knew Jim….we worked together at cvs.com a few years ago. We talked quite often about our birds. He was such a nice person and I am so sorry to hear that he has gone on to his eternal home at such a young age. We know that God has a plan and we must trust in him. I feel your grief, but please remember that it will be replaced one day with wonderful memories that death cannot erase. God will give you the strength to get thru this and He has his arms around you at this difficult time. God Bless!

Aunt Margie and Steve – Deepest sympathy and love to you both.

Cuz – Your big hug, WARM smile, and same greeting ‘come here my best looking cousin’ will be SO missed. From the time we were little kids playing in Sharon Woods creek, to lighting off cherry bombs after dark on Jerry Dr, to middle age visits (always not often enough) and NASCAR race trips to Bristol and Atlanta – all wonderful memories – our family now has a HUGE void. The void your Dad left leaving our family so early changed the path of everyone’s lives and so will your early departure. By God’s grace, promise and faith, may you all be together again now. Much Love – Cuz’in Lisa
