I so loved this man! Lost touch when I got married and moved to Cartersville Ga. He had been on my mind so much lately, so I called and his phone was not taking calls at this time so I thought he may of passed and when I found his obituary it was like being punched in the gut.
I am so sorry for not keeping up with JIM! My prayers and thoughts are with his family.

Mr. Jim was a great friend to me and my kids... he helped me thru many things, one being my legal stuff! Mr. Jim was a very smart man and had such a kind heart. He was a very determined man, went from being in a wheelchair for 18 months to walking in 3 months of working with him... he will forever be missed and loved but never forgotten! My thoughts and prayers are with the family in this time of loss... it was a great privilege and honor to work with Mr. Jim and I’m glad he got to be a part of my life for the time he was...heaven gained another angel!

Jim was a neighbor of my sister. I always enjoyed waving to him or talking with him when I visited. So sorry for the family. Especially enjoyed meeting and visiting with his sister Anna. He will be missed by many.
