Dear Mr. And Mrs. Wandrisco and family,

Please accept my deepest sympathies and prayers for your loss of Jimmy.
He and I went to school together and even went to the senior Prom together as friends.
He was funny, sweet, and a super nice guy to be around. I am sad to learn of his sudden passing.
May your memories bring you comfort in these difficult days ahead.

Dear Marlene and Dave,
We had the pleasure of meeting Jimmy and enjoying some of his gourmet cooking at one of your Christmas parties a couple of years ago. He seemed like such a friendly, hospitable fellow. We are so saddened by your tragic loss and send our most sincere sympathy. You remain in our prayers.

Mr. and Mrs. Wandrisco and Dalene,
I am very sorry to hear about Jimmy's passing. Jimmy sold me my first motorcycle, his Suzuki DR125. I had that bike for many years and I continue to ride dirt bikes to this day. It's not cliche to say that I had thought of Jimmy over the years due to his role in getting me started on this lifetime sport that I now share with my son.
May time bring you peace and healing,
Dave Priganc
