My sympathy to the family. Jim was the Kiwanis adviser to the Peoria Manual High School Key Club for many years, and I as the high school adviser, always appreciated his support and his interest. A good man who will be missed.

Dr. Case was a wonderful vet and took great care with all of our pets over the years. He was always gentle and caring with not only the animals but with the "parents" as well. He will be missed. Our thought and prayers with the family.

Jim was our Vet. for a long time but I did not become to know him as a personal friend until recent years. That pleasure began when we became fellow volunteers at Camp Big Sky. He was a faithful volunteer. He and I had the opportunity to fish together as well as working together assisting the campers. I observed Jim on occasion leaning against the fishing dock safety rails to catch his breath but would not stop an go home. He loved what he was doing at the camp for the disabled. Camp Big Sky will miss him.

We took our pets to Dr. Case for many years. He always took plenty of time with us and many times went far above and beyond for our family and pets. He typified a kind and Christian man and I was humbled to know him. Deepest sympathies to his family. The Jones and Light family.
