To the Family,
I am so sorry to hear of Jim's passing. The photo in the paper and on the Winterrowd website is exactly how I always remember him. Always, cheerful and smiling. He did much to help out his community and was certainly no stranger at his grandchildren's school. I left Woodland 16 years ago, yet seeing Jim's photo makes me feel like it was yesterday. I moved to the Kansas City area 10 years ago but have tried to keep up with the news from LaSalle and Livingston Couinties. I really regret that distance kept me from paying my respects to your family in person. Please know that I will have Jim and your family in my prayers while you go through the transition of life without this great guy. Losing a loved one always hurts, but know that anyone who knew him had the most respect for him and recognize how much he meant to the community. When you think of him, remember one of those happy moments. I know I will.

I am so sorry for your loss. Linda, I remember how close you were with your Dad and how much you were in the fields farming right alongside of him. Keep the memories close, they help over the loss. He is no longer in pain but with his King.
Love,
Nan
