My deepest sympathy Bertie and Lawrence families. From when I was little girl, I always thought Jimmy was the classiest cowboy in the world. He and mom (Kate) had many a good laugh with the ongoing jokes and pranks. Sorry I cannot be at the funeral, but my thoughts and prayers are with you; may his memories as a loving dad, grampa, husband and friend, bring you comfort in the days ahead.

Love, Susan Barfett X0X
