My time at Harmony Hills UMC in Stillwater, NJ, was long ago.
So grateful a colleague called to let me know of Jim’s passing.
I remember him as one of the “quiet” ones, never demanding attention, always extending support if needed.
The kind of person who blesses every pastor’s ministry.
Peace to you, Jim,
and comfort to your family.
