Cynthia, I am so sorry to hear of Jim's Homegoing. I remember the first time meeting you and Jim, he was cooking hot dogs at our church for fall festival and immediately knew we would be friends. He nicknamed me "meanness" (don't know why") but the hugs and smile on his face was enough. Don't think I never saw him in church without his arm wrapped around you and his eyes full of love for you. I will surely miss him but I know he is no longer suffering and is now in the arms of God. Love, Geri and Nick
