Karen and family Jim will be greatly missed, would be so hard choosing a memory , maybe our Carnival Paradise Cruise Ship, the great pictures we have will be looked at more often now. Jim not only a fun kind of guy he also was a great Christian brother and also a song he would sing (Look for me I will be there to) has more meaning now. Love you Brother
