Beautiful memories of a life gone too soon. My brother-in-love, cousin, my friend has gone home. Jim, life will not be the same without your amazing humor and kind words. Although we are thankful for the time we spent with you, there is nothing that could prepare us for goodbye. We find peace knowing you are enjoying 18 holes with Peter on a golf course made of gold. We will see you again, but until then a piece of our hearts have gone with you.

Jim was the oldest sibling of four children. Jim was a great older brother with a big heart. He loved his family and was always on stand by to insure his younger brothers and sister were safe. Jim and I were inseparable as kids, we did everything together. Jim’s friends always treated me as one of guys and called me little Acree. Jim and I started mowing yards around the ages of 6 and 7 years old to earn spending money. We were so small it took both of us to push the mower through the yard. This spectacle of determination to get the job done resulted in us getting plenty of lawns to mow on summer vacations from school. I feel this early childhood experience was the motivation for Jim’s outstanding work ethics. Jim never was interested in retirement and worked until his health started to fail. I was truly blessed to have such a great BIG BROTHER! Rest In Peace Jim , you leave behind a legacy of Love, great memories and an example of what a big brother should be! Love you brother . Little Acree♥️
