    Since Thursday morning, I have read and heard many words to describe Jamie Dunn smart, talented, skilled, happy, sociable, kind well the list could go on. However, as I ponder 38 years of knowing him and sharing birthdays, Christmases, Thanksgivings, Fourth of July, and Sunday dinners, I believe one of his greatest attributes is that of tolerance. He could disagree with you about many things and at many levels, but I have never once heard an unkind or judgemental word spoken as a result of those differences or unkind words spoken of him. When ones own frailties serve as a reminder not to judge or harbor ill feelings about another, that is a dimension of greatness to which most should aspire, and few obtain. My love always, my dear BrotherinLaw

    My deepest condolences over the loss of James. The Bible says that fathers should bring up their children in the Lord and that is what James endeavored to do. For that I know his children are grateful. He loved his family deeply and I know he will be greatly missed. May God grant the family comfort and peace during this difficult time. Galatians 1:3. Please remember that you can lean on your Heavenly Father for support. He is a comforter of all those who mourn. In His Word the Bible, He tells us to throw all our anxiety upon Him, because He cares for us, 1Peter 5:7. Isaiah 41:10. He also tells us of a brighter future when our loved ones will awake from their restful sleep to enjoy life in paradise. John 11:11 John 6:40 Revelation 21:3, 4. Many are finding solace in this promise. I pray that you will also. Heartfelt prayers are with you.
