Jacqueline and family, I was so sorry to see that cousin Jim had passed away. My memories go back to when the Freidly family lived on Jackson Street in New Holland. After Uncle Jim died, we kind of lost contact with the family. Cousin Jim was a bit older than the rest of us and was often the leader when we visited. May God give you comfort and peace in your time of grief and sorrow.
Art (Butch) and Pat Rettew. By the way, I am the son of Uncle Jim's sister, Miriam Freidly Rettew.
