Not sure what to say?

Jim and I were classmates from Jr. High - WCHS and enjoyed our friendship throughout the years. I will always remember his warm smile. Condolences to all the family. I know he will be missed.

I was six years younger than Jim, but so him a lot when we came out to pick up ornamental concrete at their home on Truman Road. My Dad and I had the most
respect for the Barbour Family. I have not seen Jim for a long time, I am sad that he is gone before I got to visit with him. One of the best family 's that I have known.

While getting a degree from UMKC, I worked for Barbour Concrete part-time from 1971 - 1974. He was a good, honorable man who took care of the people who were part of his company. It's been many years but I'll always remember him kindly.
