Jim: I did not have the pleasure of knowing your wife. But I do know you and my heart goes out to you at this time. I know how much she meant to you, and I am also aware of the fact that no words can adequately sooth your pain. But know this – people care about you deeply – I am one – and are willing to do anything that can be done to help you in this particularly painful time for you.

My sincerest condolences Jim!!

Take Care!
