  1. Dear Teri,
    Jim and I were so sorry to learn of your loss. I hope you will take comfort from the knowledge that you always did everything you possibly could have done for him. No one could do more. I hope we’ll see you at TOPS again when you are feeling up to it.

  2. Tribute to a wonderful man, James Louis Driggers, who loved my sister, and loved our family. Thanks for all the laughs, nicknames, hugs and kisses. We love you, and miss you, dearly, already.
