Ruth and I are so sorry to learn of Jim's passing. We know that he is at rest and peace with the Lord. We enjoyed the many years you were our neighbors and felt the loss when you moved to Kokomo. I still have visions of Jim practicing his chip shots in the front yard with those plastic golf balls. He never could hit them very far. Our prayers are with all of the family.

Jim and Ruth McKinney
