Judy, Jody and Jimmy, I just learned of Jim's death today, and am so sorry for your loss. Many memories of good times on Carol Ann Drive. You're in my thoughts and prayers.
Judy, Jody, and Jimmy,
I am sorry we couldn't stay and visit a bit. I would have liked getting acquainted with the grandchildren. Also, there are some things on my heart I didn't get to express. I doubt I could have done it then so I will try now.
I join the chorus of people saying Jim was a great guy. In fact, in the years that we have been associated, I have never heard a single word spoken against him.
I know your loss is great. He was obviously a terrific husband and father, a friend to all. He was a great role model and a very good sport. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. The get-togethers just won't be the same without him. Such is the void left by a good man; and Jim was a good and decent man.
Judy and all of Jimmy's family...may the prayers and loving thoughts of friends and family comfort you. We are thankful for .. his life well lived, knowing that he loved and was loved, the opportunity to share at least part of his time here on Earth. E - E Class of 1955.
Jim was a good friend of mine ever since our first days at Town and Country Optimist. He will be missed greatly. God bless Judy and family, give them peace during these days.
My deepest sympathy on your loss. May your memories help during this time of grief.
