I am so sorry to hear about your dad. I know my mother Ruth Bustin called your relatives thru Earl McFadden in CA to let them know. It seems like the end of an era of people who went thru a lot but were strong. It feels like the time went by so fast as I remember Bobby and your dad in church in Neche. My sincere sympathy to all of you. Sincerely, Ann Paulson

We acknowledge the passing of your husband, father, grands and greats and friends; happy in the knowledge that Jim chose to go on living with his Creator when faced with the question. I'll never forget stopping to see Jim and Helen at home in Cavalier. Helen said Jim was out at the farm, probably sitting in his easy chair in the barn. We took a drive out there, me thinking of all the things Jim might have went out there to do. But no, as we pulled up the driveway and stopped in front of the open door of the barn that has seen so much hard work and held so many different implements, held so many good memories, there in the middle of the empty room sat Jim in his old easy chair looking out on us, exactly as Helen said we'd find him. Our sympathies go out to all of you, Paul n Marilyn Mullen
