Andy was my brother. Growing up he meant the world to me and I loved him dearly. As adults life took us in different directions but he was always there for me. I will miss him and love him always. Karen

The video is beautiful and shows Jim and Jacki's love for family. Ginny, "Laci" and I have known our Colony neighbors Jim and Jacki only for a short time but their kindness to all shown through. And I know Jim loved keeping up with his (and my!) Phillies! Rest in Peace Jim and may our Lord give Jacki and Jim's children & grands the strength to deal with their loss.
With Love--Joanna, Ginny & "Laci"
