To my Stepfather,
You were my role model since I was in the third grade. You were always positive and watched over me through my journey through life. I'm so grateful to have shared one last time, not to long ago our trip to Amish country with my husband Lou and mom Karen Joseph
You were a wonderful husband to my mother through the years, a great stepfather to myself, my husband Lou, my sister Tracie Ellison, her husband Bill Ellison and your grandchildren Meghan Crowder, Emily and Paige Ellison. You were a great man and you will truly be missed. We love you Jim.
