Brother Jim, it's an honor to have worked with you in the Civilian World and an honor to call you a Brother Veteran. May you be at peace and I will see you again at Valhalla.

Heaven has defanitly gained another amazing sweet angel. I will never forget you Jim you was a great friend to me and Donnie for many years. When it's my turn to go I will be expecting you to be waiting at the gates with a pole saying here comes "ding ding ding" ahhh you never let me pass you without banging that pole on the ground at Tennant and saying that then texting me saying it or just no matter where we would see one another you had to say it. I'm going to mess that. I'm still having a hard time believing such a great friend has left this world. Watch over Tina and your kiddos and grandbabies & let them feel you near. They are going to need that from you. Enjoy the beauty of heaven, we will see you soon.
