Jim was always such a gentle, sweet person. I grew up with him and Carol and I always knew he was "a gentle giant." God bless your family in this time of grief, and know that he was very loved and appreciated by so many people

Jim Sr. and the Peacock Family:

We were saddened to read of James' death and it is extremely saddening to also read of his wife, Kelly;s passing only a few months ago.

James' accomplishments we are sure make you very proud. Please accept our thoughts and prayers of sympathy during this time of your loss.

JD and family,
We wanted to express our love for each of you at this great time of sorrow. Your father is one of our favorite people. What a fun person he was to be around. We had many laughs with your father. He had a unique and terrific sense of humor. We also shed tears with your dad at the passing of your mother. He loved her so much. He loves you too. He spoke of you often with such fatherly pride. What a wonderful son you are. You were and are such a gift to both of your parents. Remember how much they love you and the wonderful memories and great times you shared together. Before my mother died she told me that she knew that she would be more help to me from the other side than she could be here (she was ill and died at 57). I have felt her with me many times through the years. Your parents will live through your memories of them. They both loved you so much! You brought them so much joy. We love and care about you.

Jim was a great coach to my son and a great bishop. A man of great faith who conquered many obstacles with courage and humor. He left the world a better place. My heart goes out to JD and his parents.

JD and the Peacock Family:
We think of the old Christian hymn that says: "Not now, but in the coming years, it may be in a better land, we'll read the meaning of our tears, and then sometime we'll understand." We'll put your names on the Palmyra Temple prayer role, and pray for your peace and comfort at this hard time.

JD, I'm so glad I had the opportunity to work with your dad and get to know and love him while we were in the Bishopric together. Kathy and I are thinking of you and would like to have come to the viewing, but we are out of town. I enjoyed the time I spent as a friend and hometeacher to your family. With Love Blake & Kathy Mellor

Jim and Barbara/Lee:
So sorry to learn of the passing of your son and brother Jim. In a perfect world, we just are not supposed to outlive our children. Some day we will understand how and why.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and all your familiy in your time of great loss. It is such a comfort to have the understanding we do of the great plan of salvation. Comforting to know we will have fond reunions with those we love the most as he has had with his sweetheart.
May the Lord bless and comfort all of you and guide you through this until we can forever be comforted.
Please know of our support.

He will be missed but it's nice to know that him and Kelly are back together again. He kept everyone laughing at the 4th of July campouts with the family. JD stay strong, just know the family is always here for you!

There are no words to express how heavy my heart feels right now. I am so happy that James is with his sweet wife again, but oh how we will miss him. He was a constant comfort to me. My birthday was never just mine because I was always thinking of him right along with me. Such a special cousin...There are just no words to express my love and prayers for all of you.
