To Jennifer Eddie and Emily. Let me start by saying I was shocked to hear of Jim‘s passing.and saddened that I could not make his service last Wednesday. Know that my thoughts and prayers were with you and continue on. It’s so hard to narrow my thoughts and memories of Jim to paper there’s just so many because he touched all of our lives at one time or another depending on our ages. He was more like another brother than an uncle and we all love him. He was the patriarch left in the “Swift” family. He is missed already but then I smile just thinking of him being reunited with your Mom, our Granny and my Mom and Dad...can you imagine that⁉️ May the Lord give you peace and guide you through the coming months. Call, text, message, fb, e-mail anytime.
