To the family of Mr. James(Jim) Alvin Greer: My condolence to you at the lost of your Dad and Grandfather. I would like to share a memory of your Dad when, soon after, he was joined in marriage to his wife, Marilyn, came to the family reunion that was held at the home of 3701 South Felton St.,in Marion , Indiana as the Newlyweds Couple of that year! It was an exciting and lovely event. I think that Jimmy (as I called him) is once more joining alongside his wife, May he rest there in peace.

Dear Jim,
Thank you so much for your friendship all the years we attended Grace Community church. I enjoyed our lunches, your teaching, so full of godly wisdom, small groups, the senior dinners and most of all you visiting us in Florida a few months after Marilyn passed. You are now reunited with your beloved Marilyn.
Thanks to your family for allowing us into your life. I send my sincere condolences and pray for comfort and peace for all of you. Jim’s legacy continues with you and future generations. I am thankful to have had the privilege of calling Jim and Marilyn my friends.
Love and prayers,
Bev Nijhawan

Praying for peace and comfort from our Lord, and may He keep you in His arms and bless the entire family. Be comforted by the Holy Spirit as he ministers to each of you.
Both Bev and I are tearful at the passing of Jim but also rejoicing in his eternal home in Heaven. He is now fully restored and rejoicing with Marilyn, at the feet of Jesus. I can only imagine the joy and peace in Heaven.
Jim was always my mentor and spiritual teacher and through him and Marilyn, we came to know what a true Christian walk was all about. It was a short walk in the history of time, but an impactful journey for the rest of eternity. He was blessed and now he has blessed us all with his rich legacy of descendants.
Rest In Peace my loyal and trusty friend, and until we meet again, in the Lord.

For Cindy, Perry and Lori and your family - you are blessed beyond measure. May you be filled always with the love of your father (and mother), and your lives be fruitful in His name always.
With our love,
Pradeep and Bev

Rest in Heaven Mr. Greer. I will always remember as a young boy at Carver Center just watching you and seeing how a man should conduct themselves. We all gave you the respect. Life lessons from a good man lasts forever.
