I didn't learn of Jim's passing until tonight, am sorry that I didn't get to the viewing. I remember Jim from our school days when he would do anything for any of his classmates. Jim was the sweetest, kindest guy and if any of us needed a ride, Jim was there to be our taxi. Jim would take Donnie, Linda and me home after school or after a school function. I have not seen or heard from Jim since he went into the service, and didn't know where he ended up, but would have visited him, had I known he was nearby in a healthcare facility. I am so sorry that I didn't know. He was a father to some good looking kids! You are all in my thoughts.

Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another;
Romans 12:10
This is how Jim Marshall treated people. He was always so sweet and nice; he was appreciative of his friends and had kind words for strangers.
Jim Marshall loved everyone!
What a man he was! We love you Jim. Love always,
