  1. Hi Caren,
    I just heard from Mike about Jim’s passing. We are so very sorry to hear of your loss. We remember Jim being full of life and laughter. He was very personable and welcoming. We sure appreciated that when we were new to the neighborhood on Cambell Creek Road.
    He was very entertaining and told great stories.
    We are grateful we got to know him.
    Blessings and peace to you and your family.
    Mike and Katherine Plysiuk
