Guest Book

Not sure what to say?

I liked his sense of humour, openness and the very gentleman-like way of calling his granddaughters, Zuzu and Phoebe, per: Miss Zuzu and Miss Phoebe.

Jim was a wonderful colleague on the national staff of the UCC. Great mind, humor, and heart -- even a tap dancer! God hold him close forever.

Jim's colleagues in the United Church of Christ join in thanking God for Jim's life and witness.

I will always remember how much I loved to hear him laugh! My children were lucky to have such a wonderful Grandfather!

Jim was a valued colleague, treasured friend, thoughtful encourager, and trusted confidant. I appreciated his wisdom, his humor, and his insight. My life is so much richer and my ministry finer because of Jim Smith.
