I consider Jimbo one of my oldest and dearest friends. We shared so very many memorable experiences throughout our childhood and adulthood. Through the years we kept in touch and recently fun times on Facebook.

I will truly miss him.....he was a wonderful friend and I will always remember him in my thoughts and prayers.

To Kathy and family - Joan and I will have you in our prayers. As Jimbo would say, "God Bless." He will be remembered as one of those "special people." LOVE, John and Joan Martin

Jim, Charley, and I started The Way Group many years ago. I barley knew Jim at that time but we become great friends. His legacy will continue on. He touch many lives and many hearts. My recovery was strengthened by the years I spent with Jim in the group. I will never forget Big Book Jim.

Kathy and family
Both of us have a hole in our heart upon hearing of Jim's death. Somehow, it just seems the most likely way to end a crummy year, doesn't it? Kathy, God has a plan...we both know how strong you are.... you can do this. We are sending extra prayers up to heaven for you and your clan. May God bless you all
