Jan and Andy,
I was so saddened when I heard about Jim's death this past Monday. What a great man to have known. I always remembered his wonderful smile and his great sense of humor. We would always joke when he would come by the office and it made my day. Our prayers and love go out to you and your family during this loss. I am so thankful that one day I will be able to see him again as we sing together in the heavenly choir.
Blessings and Peace of Christ be with you.
In Christ Love,
Steve, Kim, and Caleb Wood
