Jim was a very loving and faithful man. Always sharing how proud he was of his family. When I needed friends and family after my husband died he adopted me as family. I will miss this gentle, wonderful friend always. My Heart and Prayers go out to his Wonderful Eileen and his Family.
He suffers no more.
