To Aunt Ruth and family: On behalf of the Price family, I wish to express our sincere sympathy and offer prayers of peace to you at this difficult time. Jim was a wonderful and kind spirited man- my father thought so highly of Jim. Losing someone is never easy. But if you hold the memories you have of Jim close to your heart, Jim will never be far from you. Douglas Price and family

Jim and Ruth (my younger aunt) and their children, were constant and wonderful relatives. We all know that Jim was the quiet one, and he was easy to be around. May God bless his family as they continue on through this loss.

Jim was the quietest man that I took care of. He was the type to have you start the conversation. He knew exactly what was going on. Would answer any questions for me, unless he was half asleep of course! He was the most kind and stubborn human being. I am so sad to see him gone, I absolutely loved taking care of him. His wife would bring him frostys from Wendys and would sit and talk with him multiple times throughout the week. I truly cherish such love. Thank you for letting me take care of such a sweet sole RIP Jim
