Jim & Teri, condolences on your dad's passing. Our thoughts are with you and your family.
Kelly & John Leaver

Very sorry to hear about the passing of James. Meet him through Leo when he would ride to dialysis with my mom. He was always very friendly and would reach his hand out to help my mom when she was getting on the van. After reading his obituary, I realized his family used to be my country neighbour in Ravenswood, until they moved to Sarnia. Maria was was one of my childhood friends . I would often visit Maria when they lived in Ravenswood and when they moved to Sarnia.
