Our thoughts and more are with Jim Neff!!!
« on: July 16, 2019, 10:54:24 PM »

It is with great sadness that I share the following news with all the spinners on this forum.  As many of you know, Jim Neff's wife (Renee) has been quite ill.  Someone told me things were going even worse for her.  I talked with Jim and he told me that it has been a tough time for their family and Renee.  Last night she could not hang on any longer and she passed.  I am not sure about all the details but Jim did say she will be at Kaiser Funeral Home, 1950 Whitehaven Road, Grand Island, NY  14072.  He said there will be a wake from 4-7 on Thursday.

I never met Renee but she must have been a special person, as all our significant others are, to put up with our spinning hobby.  Of course, if you have ever seen Jim's truck loaded with all of his whirling gear, it seems like Renee was extra extra special!!!
