Although we only knew Jim a little more than 2 yrs, it seemed like much more from all the laughter I shared with him. When I moved to florida, Jim was very helpful to me, whether it was on the golf course or dinners with our wives, we allways had a great time, Rest in peace my friend, you will be missed.

Although I never met Jim, I knew him through his loving daughter, Tonya, and through lively upbeat phone conversations with him and Jan. Tonya and my son Andrew reside in Raleigh NC and I live in Charlotte NC. I could always tell Tonya gets her bubbly personality from both her parents. I am proud to love Tonya as my daughter. She and I share a very special relationship which I treasure deeply. I am truly sorry for your loss and know how much you and your mother will miss him. Love and prayers, Momma ♥️
