    My sons and I are so sorry for your loss. We also lost my husband .. so we understand the hurt. It will get better with time; I can promise you that. Take comfort in the fact that he is no longer suffering and is in a better place. Someday you will all be together once again! Love, The Rongo Family

  2. Scripture has gotten me through these weeks of trial.
    God is ever faithful and loving to those who seek Him.
    Smiley accepted Jesus as His Savior at Easter time.
    Yes Lauren! I will be with him again!
    I do have a peace and comfort that only His Holy Spirit can give.

  3. Dear Nan,
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. We are so thankful that Jim accepted Jesus. God touches our heart when He knows we are listening. Jim was a caring, loving man and I will always remember him as being a gentleman to me in every situation no matter where we were. I’m so relieved you can have the faith to heal your heart knowing you will be with him again one day. We love you!

  4. Nan,Pop was one of my best friends we had a lot of good times together. We shared a lot of good fishing stories a lot of laughs and fun.a lot of sweat and labor at work, I think I was the one that nicknamed him Pop. My ole buddy will be missed a lot by this ole friend and coworker Maddog.

  5. Nan,I don’t know what to say. For several years POPS was my fishing buddy,stew cooking in the shed buddy, and my second DAD but most of all he was my best friend. I pass your house on the way to work and I always say I need to stop and see POPs. I’m devastated and heart broken.
