For two and a half years Jim was my best friend and partner. He became a wonderful father to my son and an uncle to my nephew. Jim was a generous kind talented and genuine man. I loved him with all of my heart as did my ten year old son whom Jim treated as if he was his own. I looked forward to many years of happiness with the family we formed. I am sad to say we never made our way to meet Anne Jim and Krista. I am so sorry for your loss and I can truly say I know how you feel because my heart is broken and a huge part of me is missing. Im trying to find comfort in the fact that Jim is in a place where his soul can find peace.
