Amy's wedding prayer a few years ago was the time I recognized his determined spirit. It was a sweet thing to remember him by.
I hope all the family have collected some of these moments
My memories of Jim are slightly skewed because, as a brother-in-law, my intro was late....after he and Lydia had grown children and grandchildren...i know he was proud of his kids...I'm not sure if he was as proud as he was of his cabin & tree farm...but I think the kids outranked. I have a memory of Jim meeting and driving us around in a front-entrance three-wheeled car which was a kick, if you didn't concentrate on his driving. I also tried to take him and Lydie to a "new" restaurant when they came for a visit...Jim would smile the whole time he ate...and he could eat. I also thought his smile was that of a river-boat gambler...stay on your toes. Bless him on this journey....
