Just wanted the family of Jim to know we are thinking of all of you at this sorrowful time. Jim lived across from us at Lakengren and he was a wonderful friend and neighbor. He always watched our place because we were part time residents. We loved talking to him especially when he talked about his wife who he loved very much. Knowing that they are together again with no pain or suffering gives us comfort. We hope all the memories you have of times spent together will help in this sad time. May God bless you all.

My memories began as a child. Uncle Jim and Aunt Bettya wedding. Karen and I were flower girls. I loved going over to visit them especially in the summer when the pool,was ready and we had hamburgers and hot dogs. Jimmy, Danny and Amy came along which created more fun. Now the two of you can be together forever. Enjoy the family reunion and ask Jesus to keep His gate open for the rest of the family. No more tears, no more pain in heaven.
