I am so sorry to hear about Mr. Lovett’s passing, I got the honor to care for him several times during my nursing career and was very fond of him, he was a wonderful man with a smile that I couldn’t get enough of. May God be with you during this difficult time.
We are so very sorry to hear about Jim’s passing. My daughter, Ashley and him were very close and he was her bowling coach at Steel Valley. He was always so good at getting thru to her and just a blessing for us all. Even though we don’t bowl at Steel Valley, he still found the time to come downtown and see my daughter bowl and give us all a good hug and a smile. We will miss him dearly. Our sincerest condolances on your loved ones lost. Tabatha, Ashley, Julia Herchuck
