Jim, "Dad",
I was heartbroken when I heard you had gone to Heaven. But my heart knows you are on the better side of this life. I am greatful for the memories but mostly for your sense of humor. I will always remember your laugh and silly jokes. You always greeted me with the phrase, "My favorite daughter-in law", and it always made me chuckle, because we know you had two of those and we are blessed that we had You.
My heart is at peace that you are no longer suffering and are finally free.
Jim, Thank You for the memories and may you Rest In Peace. ❤🙏

To Jim's Family:
I'm the girl from Timmonsville..James or back in the 60's we all called him Jesse was a life-long wonderful forever friend to me and I am going to miss him more than words can say. We had been in constant contact since Facebook came about and text nearly every day and he even came to Charleston several years ago and I took he and his family on a tour of our beautiful city and beaches. I did not know he was ill but he kept telling me he had good days and bad days especially this year. I send all of you my deepest condolences on your great loss. May you carry your memories with you every day and Jim will live within all of you forever. Rest in peace my wonderful, treasured friend.
