Our thoughts and prayers go out to Joe, Joni, Mark and Craig and your extended families. Living in Shreveport we regret that we are unable to share our condolences directly at Claudette's or now Jim's memorial service tomorrow. Will never forget the great times we had growing up and when it came to Jim, the motorbikes, fast cars, pole vaulting and poker games, which one way or the other he usually won. I hope your families can take some comfort in the fact that they are together again in heaven... God's blessings on you all through this difficult time.
