I have many found memories of Jim. He came into both my son and my life 18 years ago. He quickly became Papa to us also. Michelle used to babysit John and Papa was always helping out and running errands with them. Thank you for being such a wonderful man and for allowing many others to have another Papa in their life. Fly with the angels!!!
