I am so sorry for your loss. Jim was a very special man. He could make you smile and laugh even if you didn't feel like it. I remember all those times of playing skipbo and phase 10, he loved that and it was so much fun.

We are so sorry for you loss and our thoughts are with you.

We were blessed to have met Jimmie and enjoyed our conversations with him. Although we did not know him long, we looked forward to seeing him. We chuckled when we recall him driving his new motorized chair along the sidewalk, especially when he was giving the kids a ride!

We will always have fond memories of him and truly thank him for making us feel welcome .
