What a great great friend Jim was. Always enjoyed our Tallahassee visits with him the past few years.
We were lucky to have both he and Yvonne as our good friends.
They both are missed.

Jim was a wonderful and caring man. His wife, Yvonne, was my cousin and a very important part of my life. Jim moved into that position, also. I love them both very much!
