  1. Deeply saddened and sorry our dear neighbor and our special friend is gone. He will be sadly missed. He earned his wings on earth and is reaping his rewards in Jesus’s arms. We love you Jim. Thank you for the privilege of being our friend. God bless you.


  2. Cindy says:

    So sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. I know he loved his family and will be truly missed.

  3. The celebration of life service today was befitting for Jim.

    The Pastor stated the truth, Jim never once complained– about anything. His foremost priority was always taking care of Joyce as the Pastor stated. He always put others before his own needs
    He was a fine, Christian man and we will miss him terribly.

    How befitting Wawa began their fall coffee special, $ 1.00 for any size now. I thought of Jim and how he enjoyed their Columbian coffee with a dash of French vanilla. I know he’s having all the coffee he wants and some Hostess chocolate cakes with cream filling. Heaven is nothing but goodness, exactly how what Jim exuded and how he conducted his life.

    Jim Jr.– Too funny about the bike ride and swimming “instruction” stories you shared today. Yes, I could just imagine your Dad saying ” Don’t stop.” An encourage. That’s what memories are made of…You learned to bike ride and swim because you didn’t stop.

    “Mr. Joe” and Brandon (employees at Sheetz on Hull) and Teresa and David, mgrs. at Wawa- Hull all asked me to convey their sincere sympathy and condolences to the family. They’re really going to miss Jim too.
