Well to say the least I'm heartbroken...I knew when I started writing I would start crying.
I grew up going to you and Aunt Dianne's house on all Holidays, celebrating, laughing, eating etc. Nothing but great memories.
You and I would always go back and forth saying things and laughing. In later years we would go back and forth about football. We were always laughing.
I can't believe how things have changed in this last year that it will never be the same. I will miss you and Aunt Dianne so much..
May God hold you both tight in his arms.
Love you forever

I remember my Uncle Jim's laughter. He always was kind, patient, and caring. He reminded me of my Papaw Harris so much. Those chuckles I'll never forget. When papaw Harris passed I was crushed, when mamaw Harris passed I thought oh no I lost my gentle person who rubbed my feet and was an amazing cook. I saw the same things with Aunt Diane considerate, thoughtful, and really good cook, and made me feel special. Now with Uncle Jim's passing I'll never hear that jovial
laughter, the warmth he shared, and they both were a joy to be around. I truly wish I could've made it there for their funeral but unforseen health issues kept me at bay. I didn't get to know the extended relatives in KY, and that breaks my heart. I give my strength, love, and prayers to my cousin Christopher and his family as well as other family.....☚ī¸đŸ˜§đŸ˜ĸ💜💜💜🙏🙏🙏 Kristin & Keith Naszradi Clawson Michigan
