  5. Renee, Em, and the rest of the family: I’m so sorry for your loss, I hope you find some peace and easement of pain soon. Love you all.

  6. Rest in peace Linda. I was the first person Jim (Boyd) told about Linda being pregnant. That has been 50 or so years ago. He agonized over what to do, and eventually he did the right thing, marry Linda. After he told me he was marrying Linda, we were out in front of the farmhouse squalling his tires on his almost new car. That blew out his transmission. That same day we went out to squirrel hunt behind the house riding the old F-20 (I think that is/was the model). Those were the days.
