Our sincere sympathy to all the Family in the loss of Jim. He will be missed. He always had a smile to greet you. He would come over when we lived on Lewis Jones to see Doc and me. Lots of good memories. May the Lord give each of you much strength and courage at this time.God Bless, Much Love and Prayers.

Our heart goes out to your family for your precious loss. I can't take away your pain, tears and sadness. But please know we care.
"Just as a cultivator longs to see the roots of a cut-down olive tree spring up again, Jehovah God longs to restore his deceased servants and many others to life. (Matt. 22:31, 32; John 5:28, 29; Acts 24:15) What a joy it will be to welcome back the dead and see them enjoy productive lives once again!"

Jim was my friend from the time we were little kids, even before we went to school. I loved him like a brother and my heart is broken that he is gone. My sincerest sympathy to Betty and all of his family.
