Jim, Kes and families,

While I never had the privilege of meeting your mother, Jim, I gather that she was an exceptional woman from reading other messages on her Memory Wall. I extend to you and all the members of her family my sincere condolences, and may your fond memories of her help you all through this sad time.
Les McAllister.
