  1. Sorry to hear of my cousin Jimmy’s passing. Now he has joined his brother Sonny and mom and dad. He was a model for a successful man and Native American. He worked and had a good job and retired well. He and his wife Marsha lived his last many years in their wonderful house that Jimmy customized to perfection. With his hard work and healthy investment in his 401K he retired financially independent which always impressed me, and as his Native American relative, I have been able to do the same. May he find peace in the “land beyond” and my sons Shad and Preston will burn sage today to honor his life and family.

  2. Marsha, we are so sorry to hear of James passing. Jerry has been talking about him all day. Know there is no words that can really help, but please just know we are here if you need to talk or need something.
