    We are so sorry to hear about Jim. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of the Niedfeldt family. We loved Jim’s energy here at the office and he always had a way of bringing some fun to the day. Jim and that big booming laugh will certainly be missed by many. (I wouldn’t doubt if he is the Captain of the Heavenly Angels Baseball Team up there.) Take Care and God Bless!
