I remember when Grandpa was about to get off the phone with me and we had this little song we would ALWAYS sing together....
"" I love you a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck. "" and we had another one...
"" I see the moon and the moon sees me. God bless the moon and God bless me. "" I will forever miss that. I love you and I will ALWAYS miss you. Love, Brandy

Jim was a neighbor of mine who never failed to wave, smile or say hello when I went by with my dogs or in the car. He was the kind of person everyone would like to have as a neighbor, and he will be missed here on Mohican. My condolences to his family.

Dear Wade and Val: Your dad will never be forgotten. We always enjoyed speaking with him at Carl's and Mcds. We thank God for his long life. We considered him a friend. He had tremendous faith in God so we know he is in the arms of the Lord. Now he is reunited with your mother.

With sympathy, Maria and Steve Trapasso

This is my favorite memory of Jim. I lived on Cheyenne Avenue, one street east of Mohican. I met Jim when walking my dog around the neighborhood. Chuck, my husband, and I got to know him as a God fearing, loving, and caring man.

Chuck and I had just recently purchased a 32' RV and we knew Jim stored his RV parked alongside his home. Time went by and eventually Jim sold his RV leaving the space next to his home vacant. I asked if he would be willing to rent the space for our RV. He checked with his son, Wade, and said "yes". On moving day, Jim helped direct Chuck backup the RV into the side driveway. At one point, Jim gave control of the directions to me without either of us telling Chuck that Chuck should now be looking to me for direction. As I stood at the back of the RV, Chuck continued to back up slowly, looking at Jim in the side view mirror, while Jim watched me to see what I would do. As Chuck continued to back up, the RV backed into me, pushing me against the gate, and eventually breaking the gate and squashing my right breast before Chuck stopped. Chuck pulled the RV forward, holding my breast I looked at Jim. He asked if I was OK and upon my positive response immediately said, "Well it's a good thing you have personal air bags!" I will never forget that. I never thought Jim would say something like that. We all three laughed and it is a story I continue to tell.

Jim gave me a perspective of what it means to continually look on the bright side regardless of the circumstances. Chuck and I love him and will miss him. We are so happy that he is once again with his wife, Edith. Rest in peace, dear friend. Our lives are better because of YOU!

Our sincere and deepest sympathy to Wade, Valerie, and families.

Carol and Chuck Schmitt
