Don and Marty Herr

Dear Jennifer, Daughters, Dorothy, John and Family, We were so saddened to learn of Jim's death. We first met Jim when he traveled to Portland, Oregon, sometime in the early 80's and came to visit soon after we moved into the house that Don built. Although Jim didn't know us, he called and wanted to come to see us. (Thank you, Dorothy, for suggesting that to him.) He was here on business and didn't have time for a meal with us, but we had such a good visit. He was so warm and personable. We send our sympathy at this time of grief and loss. We know your comfort is in the promise of life after death, and we find our hope in Romans 14:8, "For if we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s." May your faith, your good memories and the love of family and friends give you courage, and eventually peace.
We are holding you in our hearts with love and prayers. Marty and Don Herr
