So sad to hear of Jim's passing, even though I am not in the family now, I did spend 23 wonderful years as his daughter-law. I will always treasure my time I got to spend with Jim. Even though life happened and I have not spoken to him in 2 years I still love him. He was a great man, always helping and wanting to give anything to anyone. He will be greatly missed. May you rest in peace POP, Jim. Heaven gained an Angel like no other. I pray for his wife and family to find peace.

So sorry to hear of Uncle Jim's passing. I am so glad that I got to visit with him the other day. I appreciated it so much that he helped Mom with her depression and spent time with her when she really needed it. He was a great comfort to my sister Bobbie when she was in OKC Hospital as well as her husband Dale. He was always a comfort to me as well. I love you all and pray for the family. Cindy Cantrell.
