You will be missed...

James Dean Canfield
February 14, 1927-January 16, 2008
Just was notified last night that our really dear friend passed away sometime Wednesday. He died from lymphoma which he didn't let anyone know about. I'd been asking him this past year if something was wrong. I'm sure he didn't tell me because Andrea had died from cancer. I bet he is so excited to now be reunited with his wife whom he adored above anything and called her his bride. He's known me all his life..was like a grandfather to me and the last 10 yrs. we have been really close. He lost his wife and I'd lost both of my grandfathers. We'd talk for hours on the phone and joke around...Him and hubby were really close too...going to Nascar races in AZ and having a blast together. So many wonderful memories....We love you Jim!
