Jim overcame many obstacles in his life with the help of his Savior's loving grace, and shared this love with hundreds of people throughout New England with his music ministry. Always loving toward his wonderful family, especially his mom, he was a role model for all of us. Although the pain of losing him is acute, we can take comfort in knowing he's forever singing and praising his heavenly Father. May the Lord be near to his family in this trying time. I feel blessed to have gotten to know him for these few short years.
