Default Jim Fraser Update

Hello

I just spent some time with Jim today.

The best way to describe him in a way that all MV owners will understand, is that his gas tank is empty and he is running on fumes.

We are requesting that you refrain from calling or visiting as he is unable to talk or visit. At this point in time he is surrounded by his family.

If for some reason you have made some arrangement with him for a manual or other item please send me a message at cmpmagazine@hotmail.com.

I will update this message when I hear of any change.

Thank you

Eric

Thanks for sharing this update Eric. I was just talking to Jim two weeks ago, and was in the process of sending him a few parts for a project on his M38... Sad news. Jim has been very strong to keep fighting. My thoughts are with Jim and his family.

Default funerl procession

Hello

I just talked to Linda

Following the funeral service, there will be a procession where Jim's ashes will be transported in his Dads M38, which was just restored. The family are inviting everybody with a vintage military vehicle or tow truck to participate. The procession will end up back at the funeral parlor.

In lieu of flowers the family would prefer a contribution to the Grandchildren's Trust Fund, which was Jim's wishes. This has not yet been set up and i will advise when details have been arranged.

Thanks


Eric
