I have known Jim and Nancy for many years. As a young person and adult, I have fond memories of Jim being a Deacon at Bainbridge Christian Church. He was always a quiet and very nice man.
My loving thoughts and prayers of comfort for Nancy, David, Beth, his brother Jack and the rest of the family.

Nancy and Family,

Paula and I are in Florida for the winter. We are thinking of you in this difficult time, and remembering the good times with Jim over the years, whether sharing discussion over dinner at a local restaurant or morning coffee at a local gossip bench.

Thinking of you all, Joe and Paula Martin
