I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Prime several times through my sister Janette Morrison who was his housekeeper for 37 years. Janette always spoke highly of Mr. Prime and often shared snippets of his life and activities with her own family. As a a result, we all seemed to know Mr. Prime and enjoyed him as much as she did. He was a true gentleman and will be greatly missed. I know he will be held in the heart of my sister Janette forever. We extend our deepest sympathy to his family.
