    Condolences to Jamie and Karen and Uncle Mike and all of Jim's family. I remember Jim and Carol from North Syracuse days. Over on Redwood Dr. All of my friends used to babysit the kids and swim in the pool. We all have great memories of the family. We kind of lost touch once they moved to Jamesville. Hoping the happy memories comfort the family at this difficult time. With deepest sympathy, Dan Derocher and the Butterfield club
