I don't remember any part of my life without Uncle JIm and Aunt Pat. We had so much fun when they came out to Montana to visit us with my Mom and Dad. They were friends with my Mom & Dad before they were even married. They worked at the golf club factory together and were chums for over 50 years. They camped together, rode motorcycles together, and more! Rest in peace Uncle Jim...you will be missed.
