Due to time and distance keeping us apart, we understand if you are unable to attend. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers. There will be no flowers at the church, "Where have all the flowers gone?" - Joan Baez. Veterans, your personal stories of your time with Jim are appreciated and may be mailed to the church. Acquaintances and family members are also invited to send stories and reflections to the church.
While we heal together, we wish for your family to celebrate Valentine's Day together. Some Hershey family favorite ways to celebrate Valentine's Day are by watching a movie together or by reading good stories: Mary Poppins Returns, Stan & Ollie, The Gospel According to Peanuts, Family Classics - The Wizard of Oz (1939 80th Anniversary 2019), The Snowman and Raymond Brigg's 1982.
