We are so sad to learn about Kip. What a sweet man. Jim enjoyed his friendship and they spent many hours together golfing. He would tell his stories but also endeared himself by asking you about your life. He was a special person. We will miss knowing he was just around the corner. Our sincere love and sympathy to Marguerite and family. Sincerely, Linda and Jim Freeney
