Condolences for James “Jim” Pettit

Pettit Family, So sad to hear of Jim's passing. We loved having you guys as our neighbors. Jim was always there to talk to and lend a helping hand. Towards us, he was always in a good mood despite what we imagined he was going through. My belief system tells me that we will all meet again and the pains that troubled you here trouble you no more. Keep looking down on us, Jim and especially on your good family and grand kids. You will be missed.
