Mr. Ashworth and I worked together many years ago at Pool Company (now a part of Nabors) in the Engineering Department. Jim was unfailingly polite and kind with a ready smile and a sense of humor - a pleasure to work with. While a true professional on the job, his family had his heart for he always praised his wife and children.

Jim was such a class act! He was a favorite of mine in my step-father's family, a good friend and brother-in-law to my mom and step-dad. He was a sweet and generous father to you kids, a friend to many, and much loved. Accept my condolences; I know he will be missed, but God has called him home for a reason. "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints." Psalm 116:15. So know there is rejoicing in Heaven this week. May the God of all comfort wrap His loving arms around you. I love you guys and have been praying for you. from a cuz, Connie Lattoz
