Best father anyone could have including to my friends. Nothing will express how much i love and miss my dad and best friend. Thank you to everyone for the support you have shown us through very trying times. And to his close friends that are still my family <3
Although I haven't seen you in a few years, I was sad and shocked when I heard of your passing. I have so many good memories of you and your family. I am sorry for everyone's loss. You were a great guy. RIP
Jim was one of my two best friends growing up. We were all w/in 6 months of age, and lived 3 houses in a row
beginning at the age of 5 until early adulthood when we flew the nest. 45+ years later I still have an image of the first time we met near the rear of the cactus garden in the front yard of his parents home. We were instant friends as we had a lot in common (We both had the same cap pistol and were both amazed at how "real" they looked. lol) Eventually we grew apart as many friends do though. A short time later we re-connected and stayed in close contact for several years, but eventually again went our separate ways. I always kept the eventual hope for another reunion but that hope is now gone along with Jim and sadly closes this chapter in our lives.
Sadness and a deep sense of loss abound, Chris
once a kid for me to sit for, then an annoying little twerp with the other wee ones, then a groom and a pop. now a warm, sweet memory forever joined in my grey matter with the others who created my past.
So sorry to hear Jimmy. My deepest condolences. I will always remember the little boy I used to babysit. May God be with you in your time of sorrow.

I am so sorry. He was always such a gentleman. May he rest in peace.
Norm and Family,
I am so sorry to read about Jim. Grief can be so hard, but your special memories help you cope. Remembering you and your loved one today and always.
Trials like these can be very hard. Please allow the fond memories, the love from family and friends, and most of all relying on the strength that only God can give, bring you the comfort that you need at this time.
Our thoughts and hope for you all to remember all the joy you had together with Jimmy. He will always be known that to me having watched him grow from a boy to a young man and a family man along with our children. Love is a strong bond for remberance.
May the many memories Jim helped create find root in your hearts and bring sweet recollection to your minds as you both mourn and celebrate his life.
Norman and Family,
My heartfelt prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. Dad and Mom showed us pictures of Jimmy and his family from their visits with you and talked about them often. He has a beautiful family.
I am so sorry for the loss of a wonderful devoted father, all our love and prayers go out to this family.
The most loving father and giving, unselfish person. My daddy whom I'll always love and cherish. Nothing could compare to a girl loving her daddy. I love you daddy and even though my sorrow is great, i'm glad to know you're united with the love of your life- my mom. I will always think of you both and know you're near.
My thoughts & prayers are with all of you! Always remember that Jim is where he wants to be - with Lyndia - and he is full of energy, healthy at last and there to help each of you in your every day struggles with life! Don't hesitate to call on him - he's listening!!! Love to you all.
To other family members and friends of Jim; Uncle Wade in Chillicothe, sends his heartfelt condolences in regards to the untimely and sudden death of Jim. He shared that when Jim was a tiny boy he used to carry a pillow in to him and cuddle up while watching TV. Wade said he still remembers Jim's voice, when he was a little boy, saying "Uncle Wade". Also Cindy, Wade's girlfriend, expresses the same sentiments as above.
No bond is as great as that between a parent and child. Our deepest condolences are with you as you and your family grieve. Jim was practically a brother having grown up together since we were 5 yrs old.
The words are too difficult to find to express the depth of my sorrow. I miss you.
