You always let me tag along and "help" when you fixed things around the house. You helped me to be handy around my own house. I always appreciated your help. We love you and miss you.

I remember the first time I met you. It was the first time you saw my sister, Cookie. You didn't take your eyes off her. It wasn't long after that you became a member of our family. Thru the years you helped all of us.Not one of us can look in our homes and not see something you fixed or made for us.
(me especially) Thank you Jim for all you did.I miss you, and will hold your memory in my heart
