I was so sorry to hear of Jim’s passing but thankfully we know he is smiling to be with Irma again and our Lord. Jim was always ready with a smile and a handshake every Sunday at Salem. Jim exemplified what a Christian should be as he was quick to help and I never heard him speak ill of anyone. His love for the Lord was evident in the way he lived his life. I know you will miss your wonderful Mom and Dad but you are well prepared for your future with beautiful memories and great examples. Jim was one in a million. Take care and God Bless! In Deepest Sympathy, Rhonda Whorley Field

Dear Ore Family,

My heart goes out to each of you as Jim was such a great man. He was caring, friendly, and no doubt ready to meet his maker. I know you all will miss him, but know that he is no longer in pain and reunited with family and friends in heaven. I will miss his standing at the entrance of the church to welcome everyone. May God give you comfort during this difficult time. RIP, Jim.

Pribble Town just won’t be the same any more. Sure will miss those waves as I drove by, as he diligently mowed his yard, and being, occasionally, stopped as I was passing by, for a little neighborhood news update. He was the last of the Pribble Town icons and will surely be missed.
Sorry I won’t be there to celebrate his life with you all, but I’m presently out of town. I am however, thinking of, y’all and Praying for you Comfort and Peace.
Prayers,
Vivian Greene

With deepest sympathy in the loss of your dad. Jim was always a great part of the Parker family and I remember he and Irma always being together for everything.
I wish I could join you all at this time but since I very recently lost my husband, I don't feel I am quite up to it just yet.
Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you.
Love
Jean
