Dear Lynne and family, I was so sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. I came to know Jim years ago as my brother, Josh Wilson, worked for him. I always enjoyed stopping in at World Cash and visiting with Jim. He always had a smile on his face and his dogs by his side! He will surely be missed. My son, Zac, also had the privilege of working with Jim and equally enjoyed visiting with him. You are in my thoughts and prayers. -Tanya Wilson
