Karla and I are so sorry for your loss. Your entire family is in our deepest thoughts and prayers. I met Jim in Recruiting many years ago, as we were both recruiting at the time and then we worked together as application trainers for the Oklahoma City Recruiting Bn. Jim was an outstanding Person, Trainer, Mentor and Friend! I will Miss Him! We will keep everyone in our thoughts and prayers. May God Bless You All!

We are so sorry for your loss. Jim was a good man and a great friend to us. He loved his family and spoke of his family and the Lord with every conversation he had with us. Our conversations was always about the Lord. He spoke of his love for the Lord and how thankful he was for the Lord's grace, blessing and forgiveness. We loved Jim like a brother. He was truly a loving brother to us. Your family are in our thoughts and prayer. We love you all dearly. May the Lord continue to strengthen you and your family in this time of sorrow and grief. Call me Martha when and if you need to share. Love you.

When I first met Jim, his mom and dad were both driving school buses. Jim had a heart of gold and a great since of humor. We played volleyball together on Wednesday nights...I think...down at the coliseum. He had a laugh that was contagious. He will be miss by many. Mom and dad.....my heart is filled with sadness for you, but know, you have the perfect angel watching over you. To the rest of the family, my thoughts and prayers are with you all. Rest in peace my friend.
