I have never met this wonderful man. I have heard wonderful stories from Terry my friend. His daughter. What a great and happy life he had. Look at his grandchildren and great grands. What a history and life becomes from him.
God bless him for ever may he be in peace and enjoy the glory of heaven. I’m sure he is. Just knowing Terry and the stories I know he is. What a wonderful dad !!!!
God Bless your family.

One of the things I will remember most about Uncle Jim is what my
daughter Mandy always said every time we saw him. He would always remind me that he was 20 years old when I was born. Mandy would always ask, "are you sure you were 20 years old?"
She could not understand why he looked so young. So go with God Uncle Jim, you will look just as good in heaven as you did on earth.
