    To Gail and Marcie and families, So sorry to hear of your dad’s passing, he was a good neighbor and friend for many years. I spoke to him earlier this year, he called once in a while to catch up and see how we were doing (and to trade Wildwood Dr. stories). Jim was a good guy who always looked out for me and gave logical advice when I was a rambunctious kid and young adult. Paula sent me his obit, I was out of town last week. She sends her regards also. I hope you are all well (wow, you both have large families). Thinking of you and your folks with many fond memories. Sincerely, Steve Alvito
