Well Jim, happy birthday! Today is October 14th. It's been exactly seven months since you left us. I still miss you so much, and my heart continues to break day by day. Sometimes I don't know what to do, or if I'll make it. I thought it would get better by now, but it seems to get worse. I wish I were with you. I know you're serving GOD in heaven, but call me selfish - I need you here. What am I to do? I ask GOD to heal my torn heart, but it doesn't seem to mend. I guess I'll just have to be patient and wait. And I'll continue to pray that soon GOD will bring me home. I can't wait to see you there. I can't wait to see you standing at the gates of heaven ready to meet me. Until that day, my heart will continue to break. I love you with all my heart. I always have and I always will. Deb
Wow. I worked for Jim and Butch in 1971 at Arrow while attending Bradley Univ. I remember those summer nights when Jim and Butch would get in from their day jobs and we would all hang around the office ( car wash ). I just saw this obit by chance. Jim always had a mile wide smile. I went on to build my own ambulance company in CT. But I'll always remember those days. I hope he had a great life. Rest in peace.
