I had worked with Jim for a few years on the weekend rotation which was 24 hours/day from Friday evening to Monday morning. I also soon discovered that we were neighbors. I was able to get to know Jim well as this was not a popular shift to work, so with only the two of us, we took care of all the patients. Jim was an excellent nurse. He could start an IV with his eyes closed. He was extremely dependable and committed to his responsibilities.
He had great nursing skill and rescued me more than a few times!!! May the Lord's peace and strength comfort you (Phyllis), Jimmy and Brian. "Vee"

I like to think that God creates the stars from the smiles of his saints....somewhere there is a new, very large and very bright one shining.
I'll remember Jim as a Scouter I was proud to have served with and a great father/husband and look forward to seeing him again when the Lord calls me home.
My prayers and sympathy go out to all who will miss him.
