Karen and Family, so sorry to hear about Jim. I always enjoyed his quiet personality, he always spoke to me even if it was just a tilt of his head or a "hello". My prayers and thoughts are with you.

Was a year older in school than Jim, but always had a lot of fun conversations with. Just a good ol boy! If there were more people in the world like him, it would be a much better place. I am sure he will be remembered well.
