A Time for Closure

This afternoon, Jim's cremains were put into the ground.  Dad & Mom, David, Grandma and Mike Van Asten were present.  We all joined in this private event which took place at Calvary Cemetery in Tomahawk, WI.
The cremains were layed to rest along side of his Grandpa Farrand.  You notice, I say "cremains" as it really isn't Jim.  He is way ahead of all of us enjoying meeting with all dear to him in heaven.  I picture him totally embracing his Grandpa, aunts, uncles and friends with that big wide grin and giving hugs all around.  If you all imagine this, it will help comfort you.  
God bless you all and consider this a closure to this site without an official closing.
Will try to keep you posted on any information i get from the police and if you hear any announcement, please email me @
We will be heading to ATL on Oct. 14 then on to FL.  
Thank you all for being a part of Jim's life.
