One Tribute to “James K. “Jim” Ammel”

  1. I was sorry to hear about Jim passing away. Jim worked with my Dad Jack LaPine for many, many years. He and Lucy were friends of both my parents. Their camp/home was in the same area of ours. We would stop by on summer days to visit. They were both always so warm and welcoming. They would return the visits to our camp too. These are fond childhood memories. Again, I am sorry for your loss.
