Jim was always such a gentleman and quiet man. He and Adrian always made me feel so welcome to the family and gatherings. I always thought of them as brother and sister. Don always thought so much of Jim and Adrian and we enjoyed all of our get-togethers. We will miss Jim's quiet sense of humor and all the love he showed his family.RIP Jim. You and Don behave yourselves up there in Heaven and the both of you send some kind of sign to me and Adrian. We love you.
