I worked with Jim at Cooper and have a lot of good memories including our talks about the Detroit Tigers, and always teasing him about being my dad...just a joke, because he said he would never claim me! I was so sorry to hear about his passing...please know you all will be in my prayers.

Sending condolences to my cousin Pam on the loss of her husband Jim. He was a fine Christian man with a good heart. I held him in high regard for his military service and enjoyed our conversations on many different subjects. I will deeply miss seeing him. I pray for the Lord’s comfort for Pam and Jim’s family.
