As most of you knew I am Jim's granddaughter Loree. My dad spoke last night about how the family was blended. Papaw had my aunt Debbie and then his mom had him which was my dad Daryl papaw's son. Papaw ended up marrying mamaw Fran. In the year of 87 mamaw Fran passed with a gran mal seizure. There for that left papaw all by himself. My dad was 21 got married and took on the responsibility of raising me. I was not his. Later on in 97 A wonderful lady came into this picture named Patsy she was wonderful in everyway. Little did I know that she was going to become my mamaw. Papaw dated her for 6 months and then we was at a wedding. My aunt Debbie knew her from St. Joseph Hospital where they worked together at. I was so glad to gain a mamaw she accepted me as her very own. I wanted to say this last night but knew I would break down. So I am telling it now. The greatest gift that papaw gave me is giving teaching my dad to love unconditionally and how to be a wonderful father. It takes someone special to raise someone else's child. My dad has be phenomenal. I thank papaw for that everyday. Cause if it wasn't for him teaching him those morals about life I don't know where I would be. I am thoroughly glad to say that I had the most wonderful GRANDFATHER in the whole world.

We are so sorry to read of Jim's passing. we have fond memories from when we lived across the street from Jim and Fran when the children were small.
Nelson has special memories working with Jim at Parker Seal. They shared many laughs and pranks together.
We send our sympathy to Patsy, Debbie, Daryl, and all of Jim's family. May God bless all of you at this time of sorrow.
Nelson just had surgery and we will not be able to come to the visitation, but our prayers are with you.
