I have very fond memories of Jim and myself standing in the yards after hours of yard work. We use to discuss many things, but mostly talk about gardening and how to make our yards look better, after all we did have the best looking yards at the time! Jim always had a smile on his face and a laugh that was unforgettable! He will be missed by many. My prayers go out to his love ones. Jim and Beverley are the best kind of neighbors one could ask for! God Bless!
