Dearest Mary and family,
Imagine the celebration in Heaven as this good and faithful servant is welcomed home! Picture Jim's wonderful smile as he rejoices in the arms of the Holy One. May this vision bring peace and comfort to your heart as you walk the journey of grief.
Mary - remember when we sang He's Alive? Picture this now...Jim meeting Jesus....
"But suddenly the air was filled with a strange and sweet perfume. Light that came from everywhere drove shadows from the room, and Jesus stood before me with His arms held opened wide. I fell down on my knees and I just clung to Him and cried. Then he raised me to my feet, and I as looked into His eyes, the love was shining out from Him like sunlight from the sky. Guilt in my confusion disappeared in sweet release, and every fear I ever had just melted into peace. He's Alive! He's Alive! He's alive and I'm forgiven, heaven's gates are opened wide!"
Know that you and your beautiful family are being held in prayer!
Love always,

Richard Kadvan

Mary and Family, please accept my condolences on Jim’s passing. While you cherish memories of him as a husband and father, my memories are of him as an employee of Packard and a fellow parishioner if St. William Parish. He was truly a gifted man who shared his talents thru his innovation at Packard and in his role as a parishioner and later as Deacon Jim at St. William. May our Heavenly Father provide you with strength at this difficult time. God Bless!
