Jo and Rae Nell We were so sorry to hear of your dad's passing. Bob just asked last week about Jimmy. Due to health reasons, we are unable to come to the cemetery or funeral home. Please accept our heartfelt condolences. Dad, Mom, Lawson and Dean were dear, dear friends and we have missed them dearly. Prayers for all. Karen and Bob Dulin
