Love you so much Pockey!!!
To my dear friend Jim Fife and his entire family. I am so saddened today as i have lost one of the closest people ever to be a part of my life. I loved every minute of being a part of the Fife family when i worked for Jim and when we were just close friends. When Jim learned his TM meditation and later took the Art of Living course we shared very spiritual moments together. You will be greatly missed..Until we meet again in another life Rest In Peace my friend.
Lou, Please accept my deepest sympathies to you and your family. May you find peace and comfort in the coming days. God bless.
My deepest sympathy. Jim was a great person. You will be in my prayers.
I will miss you greatly my friend. You are like family. My condolences to your family. God speed Vic, Gigi and Vito
Dear Barb,Luanne,and Family, I know this is a very late sympathy but I didn’t put 2 and 2 together that this was your Dad. I understand what you’re going through because I lost my Dad June 16th 2010, and I am missing him terribly. Its so hard dealing with a passing of a loved one, I have no words to say that will make you feel better,I guess the only way I get through it, is knowing they are in a better place. I wish all of you the best, If you ever need to talk please feel free to call me, sometimes its easier to talk to someone who has gone through it. God Bless all of you and the grandchildren. Love you Sherri LaRosa Grieco
