We were blessed to have known Jim, to have the privilege of being around him on so many different occasions. Having known him for over 45 years It is very hard to just pick out one memory is very difficult. He always welcomed me and my family into his home. There was always a cup of coffee ready and he loved to chat about the days news. He loved his family and was always looking forward to seeing them. He was very proud of all of you and your accomplishments. He loved having his grandchildren around and was there to help them when needed. From Florida, we send our love to all of you and we are sorry for your loss. Just know he is in a wonderful place where you will see him again one day. We cry with you tears of joy and some tears of sadness knowing that he will be missed. God bless all of you and remember Jesus is a whisper away. Our prayers are with you all.
Tom and Diane Walsh, Bradenton, Florida.
