Not sure what to say?

Jan, I am so sorry to hear about Jim. He was such a good friend to me when I was at Advance and even after I left. He was always so helpful. He was so kind to my mom when he would come to look at her computer for her. He would just laugh at some of the things she would do on it. He was a kind and funny person. And once you were his friend he would look out and do anything for you. He was very special. I did not hear about it until today. Again I am so sorry for your loss.

Much love and hugs to Jan, Crystal, Amie and the rest of the family. Stay strong and remember he will forever be in your heart.

Jim and I worked together for years at Advance. He and I were good friends. I just learned of his passing and was shocked. My prayers go out to the family and his Advance Auto co-workers.

Jan & Crystal, I am so sorry to hear of Jim's passing. He was such a kind man and loved you all so much. He will be greatly missed. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Please let me know if I can do anything for you.

Jan you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Sorry to hear of Jim's passing.

JIM JIM JIM....how we are going to miss you..So many memories. Especially you and Mike and all the Puerto Rico trips for work. So many stories. You were a wonderful man who cared deeply for others. Especially Jan. We loved the way you always cared/loved our kids. Caleb always liked looking for you at Dogwood in the mornings. We will miss you. Rest in peace now our friend. We are praying for family and if we can do anything let us know.

Jim was a kind and friendly coworker years ago. So sorry to learn that he passed, much too soon. My sympathies to Jan and Crystal.

As a oncology nurse practitioner, each loss takes a small piece of your heart. Sometimes you wonder if you have enough to keep giving. But then you meet someone like Jim so very proud of his wife, his daughter, his family, his trike, his job and co-workers, and his country....and I wouldn't miss being a part of his journey for the world. The loss is incomprehensible and I look forward to seeing him again someday. Love and appreciation to the Rettinhaus family for allowing me to be a small...

I know everyone is as shocked as we are by Jim's passing. Jim and Jan are great neighbors, we know they're there if we need them. Jim, you just didn't want to mow the yard this year! I can hear him laughing now.
Our love,
Beth and Greg
