My sister and I were a couple of those kids he helps with cattle . As our dad had passed and our family didn’t farm anymore he gave us the opportunity to continue to show cattle. We spent many summers breaking cattle with him and a few road trips to show. Suv had a special place in our hearts and always will .

As a you g kiddo I remember Uncle Jim’s laugh the most. It is associated with Christmas Eve, and all of us being there together having ham, watching Man from Snowy River and then we’d all gather in the family room and exchange gifts. It was the good ol times
