Jim, I loved you and your family very much. So does Jimmy. Our kids grew up together. I have so many memories of us it would not fit on this page. I remember laughing together and I remember our sadness together. I cannot believe you are not here physically but to me you will always be in my heart. This is not good bye because I truly believe you are in heaven. When it is Jimmy and my time to go I hope to see you and give you a big hug then a kick in the butt for leaving us the way you did. Love you my dear and I will see you later.

Beverly notified me of Jim's passing and I was shocked. Belinda and I want to convey to you and your family our deepest sympathy in your loss.

I always enjoyed being around Jim as he and I were the same age. He died way too young but I know his was a life well lived.

Will not be able to make his service but we will make a donation to the American Heart Association in Jim's behalf. We will be thinking of and praying for you and your family during this difficult time.

Richard & Belinda
