My husband and I so enjoyed getting to know Jim better on our visit for Joseph and Kristin Capps wedding. We were related by love to Jim through Bee. He had the most heartwarming smile and sweet calming presence. He was so welcoming and accepted us as family. We pray God’s peace and love envelope all of the family. May the sweet memories of him bring you solace. God bless and all our love.
Craig, Joanna and Jonathan Strickland
