Default Information on Jim Melton (Mr Jimi)

Please post messages and/or condolences here: http://xlforum.net/forums/s...d.php?t=268374

I just got off the phone with Lorraine.

Jim died sometime between 4 - 9 July. An autopsy is being performed to determine the cause of death.

Lorraine told me that Jim will be cremated and that a memorial service will take place later. It could be a few months though.

She would like to receive cards and flowers at her home.

I asked if she needs any financial assistance but she said at this time she did not.

Please contact me via the Contact Us if you would like Lorraine's address if you wish to send her a card, flowers, or a few dollars. Please do not PM me to ask for this info since my PM box fill up and you would not be able to get the info. I will try to keep up with my email and get the info to anyone who asks.

I will keep in touch with her at least weekly for a while to insure she is ok and determine if there is anything that we can do to help her out. I think right now she is still in shock and does not realize the help she may require and the number of people who are willing to help her out.

UPDATE - I have just found out that Lorraine went over to clean out Jim's other house and was to emotional to go in. The house needs cleaned so her friends got a quote from a cleaning company. The cost will be $1000.00.

If you plan to send car please send a few dollars to help her out if you are able.
