Jim and Nancy was the dearest of friends to Loyd and I. He was always wearing that beautiful smile. He was the truest of true Christians. I always had to kid him about his driving, and he knew it was coming. He was a perfect example for all who yearn to be Christ like. I am sure he had a glow on his face when he walked thru those gates to Heaven.

Jim was a man who spoke softly but his message of commitment to the Lord was clearly heard. He was a man of conviction and character. Nancy, I am praying for you as you walk this difficult journey.
