    Fondest of memories of you and Nana. Remember teaching Jack to “spit”. Uncle Jim you have always been a true southern gentleman. We can not tell you how much we will miss your presence. You will be in our hearts forever. Lauren Bacall loved her visits and constant attention you showered upon her. All our love to you. Anne, Allan, Jack and Lauren

    I only met Mr Meehan one time. I did some typing for him and he was very complimentary on my work. He even tried to pay me more than what we had agreed upon but I only wanted what we had agreed upon. My hope and prayer is that he went peaceful even though I knew he was sick. God bless him and the family he left.
