    Dear Judie,I admire you. You are a Christian lady, a devoted wife, and a dear friend. James suffered for so long, and you were committed to giving him the best of care. James adored and loved you. I believe that is why he held on” for as long as he did. I remember that James would watch church services on television, and read his Bible on Sundays. Judie, your faith in God will carry you through the sad and lonely times ahead. I feel blessed to have you and James as friends.Most sincerely, Minnie Irwin”
