Not sure what to say?

I liked the way Jim planned things in advance. Several years ago he said he made a 'bucket list' and started acting on it. I couldn't help but ask, "Aren't you a little young to be working on a 'bucket list'?" He disagreed. He said that nobody ever fully completes their bucket list so he might as well start early. He had a love for life that came only second to his love for Rose. My sympathy to Rose, Barbara, Terry and their families. With much love, JAN BAIRD

Jim was a wonderful big brother. I will miss him dearly and will cherish all of my memories of and with him always. Love you Jim.
