    Sorry I’m not going to make it to this last “get together” for you Cousin Jim. Glad I was able to spend some time with you when I was up there in August. I’ll always remember the times we spent together growing up as kids and fun we had at the various curling bonspiels we went to together. My love, thoughts and prayers for all of the Profeit family, especailly to Linda, Dan, Marjory and Michael.
