    i am so sorry for your loss! I remember Mr. Fortune’s TV repair days but mostly his Western Auto years. The store was so interesting to me as a kid and I enjoyed renting the “two-seater” bicycle there. Keeping you all in loving thought and prayer.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.  Uncle Jim was a wonderful man.  I'm sure Aunt Barbara, Mom and Gram B are there waiting to embrace him.  You will be dearly missed!
