    My sympathy and love goes out to you at the loss of Gramdma Yanz. I don’t remember her well, but do know how much Jim cared for her. She will be remembered fondly.

    I fondly remember growing up on Foster Street. I remember going over to Mary and Linda’s house after school for warm homemade bread with butter. It melted in my mouth. I thought that was the most delicious bread I had ever tasted. I also remember my mom (Rachel) and Marj on both ends of the jump rope, so us kids could keep jumping. Their arms never got tired. What fun we had!

    May God comfort you and be with you.
