Greg, Steve and family,

I am sorry to learn of the passing of your father. I had very little contact with him, but always remember seeing him at our baseball games at North, and I know he was very supportive of you all. My condolences to you all.

Jim was a very close Christian friend and that shared many memories he had from his early child hood through his time in the Army. He was extremely proud of his daughter and two sons. His
three grandsons were the apples of his eye. Jim was one of the most generous men I had ever met, doing much for Country Acres Baptist Church, who he prayed for on a daily basis and attended every Sunday without fail.

Jim, my friend, you are, and will continue to be missed by many but we look forward to our heavenly reunion when our Savior returns. Hallelujah, what a friend w e have in Jesus!
