Donna and I send our warmest prayers of faith and hope. The beautiful butterflies included in the memorial video are the very symbol of the new season awaiting us. We know the sight of a butterfly will comfort you as they have us since we lost our Jimmy. Condolences to John and family on the loss of Louise, and congratulations on 53 years of love.
