For the family of Jim Crompton: I am late in learning of Jim's passing. I know that losing him and Nadine is difficult for all of you. They were both fine, upstanding people and will be missed so much. Sometimes it is the quiet, ordinary people who contribute the most. Bless you all in this time of sorrow.
