  • Dear Jim,

    I can barely remember a time in my life when you weren’t with my sister Shirley.

    I’ll never forget your kindess to me, especially as a teenager. Being my big brother, giving me advise and just being there for me.

    You’ve left me with many happy memories. One in particular stands out in my mind………the time you let me take your brand new Dodge to the movies!! I was 16, it was 1955 and anyone that knows how you felt about your cars might not believe this…but it’s true!!

    So many of us will miss you, but we’ll have our memeories to comfort us!

    I love you, I’ll miss you.

  • We all loved Grandpa Great Grandpa for Cierra, and since we couldn’t be there in person, we wanted you to know that we are there with you spiritually and have you in our prayers. Thank you to Grandma, Mom & Dad, and everyone else who have tried to keep us “there” even though we are many miles apart.

  • Jim, You will be missed. I will never forget the time that you, Shirley and little Jimmy came to visit me and little Garrett and I went back to Washington with you. I am sure you will remember what Garrett did on that trip. When we would get together we laughed about that for a lot of years.
