Not sure what to say?

Nadine, we just learned of Jim's promotion to glory. We truly grieve with you and the girls as Jim was such a kind and caring man. We are praying that God grants great comfort to you in the coming days.

Nadine and girls,
Our prayers and sympathy are with you! We will never forget your kindness and generosity in letting Jeff stay with you when he first started working in this area, and you didn't even know us at all! I am hoping to be able to have an Elijah room like that someday! You both were such an inspiration to us!

Nadine and girls, I just learned of Jim's passing. I will always remember the many, many kindnesses you poured out on my mom and our entire family. Although her memories are growing dim, she always brightens when I talk about you. Your family has truly been a blessing in my life. "I thank my God upon every remembrance of you"

One of my all-time favorite people and someone that I learned from on a daily basis. A man of true strength. Jim, I already miss you.

Mrs. Ames and family,

I would email Jim when planning a visit and in spite of his illness when I asked how he was doing he would always say God is good. He was a special person indeed and I will miss seeing him when I'm in Canton. Please know that we will continue to keep Jim, you and your family in our...

It was my privilege and pleasure to work with Jim for nearly 30 years. His faith was always evident and served as an inspiration to others. He will be missed but not forgotten.

Nadine and Family, My thoughts and prayers are with you. Jim was truly an inspiration and his life demonstrated that when you walk in faith, you need have no fear. I am a better person for having known Jim. God's blessings for you all.
