From the first time I met Reverend Beck he treated me as though he had known me a lifetime he will be truly missed. RIP

Mr. Jim was the most kindest man, who loved his family. I never will forget the words he said at my dad's service and the great friend he and Mrs. Norma have been to my mom. As I stood to rededicate my life to Jesus Christ, Mr. Jim stood there with me, because my dad couldn't. That will forever be in my heart. Words can not express how much he is loved, admired and appreciated. May his acts of kindness forever be carried on thru all of us that knew and loved him. Momma Norma, you are in my heart and prayers. I love you both.
