    Jim was a very nice person, I wasn’t around him as much as my brother, but the times I was around him he was very quiet and peaceful person, sorry to hear he died. My brother Steve called me as it hurt him most that Jim had died. May he rest in peace.

    You came into my life after Dad married your mom who became my mom and Dad became your Dad. You and Ruthie and the kids were the family I loved to be a part of. We had a lot of good times and lots and lots of laughs. I will always remember your smile and sweet nature. It is so sad we could not have continued to be a big close family but we all got scattered about the country but memories are forever. See you in the hereafter with the rest of the folks! Love to Bud, Sara, Becky and Mally. May peace be yours. Aunt BG
