Dear Mary and James, Cindy and I were so saddened to hear of James' passing. We have wonderful memories of him when he ran Hie's Variety. He will be remembered for his great sense of humour and his ability to talk to anyone. What a friendly guy! I know he loved his Pittsburgh Penguins dearly and had accumulated quite a collection of memorabilia. I remember the last time he visited our house with Mary. We had a great time reminiscing about "the good old days". He was especially interested in our gardens and wanted a tour to admire the different varieties. We were really glad he stopped by after all these years. he will be missed by his many friends and family! ~James Hie~ December 28, 1962 - June 6, 2020 May He Rest In Peace
