Jim will be sadly missed! We played alot of golf together several years ago. I remember after the Owen’s Corning Thursday Maintenance league, we would always head to Scioto Downs to bet the horses! I will miss Jim. RIP My Friend…

When I think of Jim, I see him as the photo above. The big brother that I always went to for advice. He was the one who walked me down the isle to my one and only. I know now he’s at peace and being welcomed home by all his beloved family and friends who have been waiting for him. My deepest sympathies to my wonderful sister and law and to all his family and friends who will miss him dearly.

My heart cries for what you & Jim have been through. No one knows how hard it is to be that caretaker unless you’ve walked the path. You were always putting Jim 1st, now take time for you. It’s a chore to try to put yourself 1st but I’m only a call away. There’s nothing like a personal touch but when that’s impossible, reach out, I’m here. I love you my friend. You suppose there’s a golf course in Heaven?

Sweet, sweet Jim. You can rest in peace now surrounded by people up there that love you. Linda made you a promise along time ago time ago and stuck to it and I’m so proud of her! Now she can put herself 1st and heal her body. You will be missed. Till we meet again Jim…..

Missing grandpa, but choosing to remember him as he is in this photo, and when he took me Easter egg hunting at OCF, to my first rodeo, and when he tried to convince me to take golf lessons (he failed) in elementary school. Then there is that phase of time when he use to paint along with Bob Ross…that still gives me a laugh. Linda, my heart breaks for your sorrows. I love you and I’m here. You “played house” 😉 so well! One day at a time.
