I just heard about Jim. I am sorry for your loss. I always enjoyed chatting with him, and I am saddened that I will never have the chance to chat with him again. I loved telling him stories and listening to his. Some of them were probably even true. He was a good man, and really loved life. Take care.

Just seeing Jim would make you smile.
He had a natural way of uplifting everyone he met.
I was blessed to have known him.

My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. There is little that I can say or do to ease your pain and suffering. May knowing that you are in the thoughts and prayers of many, bring a measure of comfort. Life is so short and those we love are gone from our lives too quickly. God's promise to empty the grave in the near future is found at Hosea 13:14, may the God of loyal love comfort you during your time of sorrow.

Julia and I are deeply saddened by the passing of Jim. He was a kind and a generous person. Quick with a smile, always an encouraging word, ready to lend a helping hand. Passionate about his project cars and boats, great skill and willing to share his knowledge. We will miss Jim, but are thankful to have known him. Our deepest sympathy goes out to all of you. May God bless and comfort you.

Jim Cobb was a great man and a great friend. I don't think you could love sailing or love people more than Jim did in his every day mindset. Jim was all-in if he was helping you on a project or if he was committed to doing something. He was cheerful even in the midst of a disaster. He could be turned over and cold in the middle of the lake and still smiling while being rescued. He also is the man who would come rescue you if you were in trouble or needed help. He would give you about twice as much help as you asked for. He was on time, he was devoted and he was a giving soul. All those who were lucky enough to be his friend will back all this up for generations to come. Jim, I am sorry you are gone. You did great for your fellow man. You took care of everybody you met. You made the world a better place day by day and deed by deed. God Speed Jim, you deserve the great reward which you are going to receive. An eternity of sunshine and good wind are all there for you. You are missed already.
