Our thoughts are with you all during this sad time. Jim treated me like one of the family, as have you all, and it meant a lot to a girl far from home. Condolences from all the Weaver family.

Dear Emma, Mary, Jimmy and Family,

May you all find comfort and peace knowing how much Jim (your dad) loved you. I feel very lucky to have been considered an extended part of your family. Jim (your dad) and I hit off from the very beginning. He always made me smile and I loved seeing how much enjoyment he got from being around all of you. He was a true family man in every since of the word. Hard working, honest, tough on the outside and someone you could always depend on. I know you will look back and treasure the many memories you have.

Jimmy and Jeannie your children were the light of his eyes. I''m so glad he had time with them. You will I''m sure share many stories as they grow up and they will know there Grandpa as a special man.

Mary, I know the loss you feel is great and what a good and loving daughter you are. You got a lot of that strength from your Dad. I always admired how close you all were. You knew the true meaning of family and never gave up even when your Dad''s disease progressed. I know he looks down at you with pride.

What a blessed experience this has been for you. That may sound a little strange, but you had the opportunity many don''t. You were able to be with Jim from the beginning to the end. Rarely being apart. I know there were many tough days, you pushed through them because of the love in your heart. You hear people talk about true love often. I believe you and Jim are shinning examples of true love. Your loss is great. May your memories give you the strength and peace during this difficult time.

I wish I could be there to give you each a hug,
Love to you all,
Patty Neal
