    Jim and Peggy lived directly across West Oak Street from my mother, Phylis Tolbert for many years. When I would come to Mitchell to visit my mother, I would always look forward to seeing Jim and Peggy and having nice conversations with them. I am so sorry to hear of Jim's death. I know he will be deeply missed by his friends and his surviving family.
