Dear Sorenson and Atkinson Family,

I am so sorry for your family&s loss. I keep you in my prayers and thoughts every day. I am sorry I could not be there today because of other conflicts, but I wanted you to know that I will always love and care about all of you. Your family means the world to me and I don&t know where I would be without all of you.

I am glad that your Father and Grandpa is now out of pain and in a better place looking over all of us. I am sure he is very proud that he got to see Ashley get married and his family grow and prosper over the years. He knows that he has a wonderful family and the memories he shares with you are precious.

Love always,
Nina Sadeghi

It was a shock to receive the email today that Jim had passed away. Sandy and I are in Italy and regret we will not be back in time for the service. You have lost a love one and all the rest of us that new Jim lost a great friend. My memories of him will never be forgotten, and as my father said our time on this earth is only a blink in eternity, try to leave it better than we found it, and don?t worry we will all be able to sing together again in heaven. God Bless
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Dear Arnie, Ev, and Joy,
I was so sorry to read of Jim&s passing. I wish I could express these condolences in person but I have to be with my son, Jamie, daughter-in-law, and two grand daughters for an appointment on Friday, made some time ago.

Please know that you all will be in my thoughts and prayers tomorrow. May you all feel peace and love in your memories of Jim. I have some memories of him being ""a little brother"" when I used to spend the night with you, Joy...and those summers at the Lake too.

I hope you all are doing well. (I envy your warm weather especially this year!)

With deepest sympathy, Sharon Spencer Moore
