Very very sorry to hear of Jim''s passing. I used to work with him at Community LIFE, and he was just a pleasure to be around. He always did his best to make us laugh, and the world will be a much less bright place without him in it. He always talked about his family and it was apparent how much he loved all of you.

Our deepest sympathy to all the family. We knew Jim from Kmart as we both worked with him at several stores. He was truly a pleasure to know, and when I heard of his passing, I said to my husband how his laugh will be missed. He could always bring a smile no matter what kind of day you were having. May God help you through this very difficult time. Our prayers are with you, we will remember Jim with smiles in our hearts.

Your baby
