Jim is my father. I will write more about him in a future post. After re-reading his obituary something struck me as odd, and that is the fact that there were two different funeral homes involved with his death. One was where his body was available for visitation, and another one took care of the actual burial. I don't remember seeing this anywhere else. Has anyone else seen this?
