Jim was my cousin, a little older than me, but he was very special in my mind. All Aunt Mary’s kids were special because they lived in “California“– that far away land that we only dreamed about and would probably never see. As kids, we saw them sometimes in the summer when they would visit Arkansas. That was great, but once they moved back to Arkansas, we really grew to love them.

Jim was quiet, even though he had a strong voice and a strong personality to go with it. His interests and talents were amazing. We recently visited in his home and saw his woodworking creations. His storage area was filled with wood creations: flower planters, turkeys, wishing wells, and other beautiful creations. I had no idea how talented he was. He was never one to brag on himself, but I immediately had an appreciation for his talent. He wouldn’t let me leave without giving me one of his planters, and I will treasure it always. I wanted to buy one of the wishing wells, but our car was too packed. They were amazing. I told him to bring me one to the family reunion and I would buy it. He was always making something special for the reunion auction. Sometimes he and I would even have bidding wars (LOL).

Though we may not have one this year, my thoughts will definitely be on Jim and how he played such an important role in our reunions and in our family. We will definitely look forward to our Heavenly Reunion.

I will miss you, Jim, my sweet cousin.

Our love and prayers are with Jim's family.
