My condolences to you, Diane and family, for the loss of your James. I never met either one of you, but in this small town, saw you as you went through the journey that took your love from you. We smile and nod. I last saw you sitting on the bench outside CDH with James on a stretcher in the warmth of the sun. never knew your names, but felt you had a special warmth and kindness about you. May you find comfort in the love you had for so many years.
