    Auntie Carol,

    I still can recall vividly our Lolly the Trolley tour around town, our fun and treasured stay at your beautiful Eastlake home, your precious dogs and hearing of Uncle Jim and my father’s stories of the ‘good, old days’.

    Uncle Jim will always live on in our hearts and the fond memories we shared together. May he Rest In Peace and fly high up there. We love you dearly, Auntie Carol and hope to see you soon.

    Love always, Ali and Angie.
