Know this is late. Sorry I missed the email. So sorry about the loss of Jim. Knew him in high school but sounds like he was quite a man, father and grandfather. Prayers for him and all.

This Brilliance
In loving Memory

The sun slides westward casting
long golden shadows;
night comes silently creeping.

Tears rise up filling stunned eyes.
Melancholy thoughts
take permanent residence.

wound of solitary grief.

Eternal presence, recall,

I love all the old photographs. It brought back a lot of memories of Valley Park. I wish you and yours well through this difficult time. I don't envy the road you have to travel, but cherish the memories that arise during this period.

James must have been an incredible person because Krista and Mat are so lovely. Soory for your loss.

You live forever now in our hearts. Thank you for the many gifts and memories you gave us. I am most especially grateful for our beautiful family. I know that you will be watching over us all. I hope you feel our love.

Really sorry to hear about your dad I have to work Saturday, so I will not be able to make it to Oklahoma. Robin and I are thinking about you and praying for you .

I remember the day Jim and I left for the army,on the bus from the cut rate drug store.
Jim and I spent our army hitch together all the way to the end,
We were high school classmates,and good friends,we'll miss you

To Jim's family and friends go my thoughts and prayers at this time. We were classmates through high school, and in home room for all those 4 years. He was a lot of fun and a very nice guy. Rest in peace my friend!
