Jim was a very caring person. I was a single mom when I met him and Linda 14 years ago and he was always there for the hard times of raising a child alone. I know he’s in a better place, but he will be greatly missed.

Linda, Jamie, Uncle Jim, Aunt Jeanine and Vicky,

My prayers are with everyone in the family especially for James and the progress of his dear soul. Hearing of his passing brought all of the great summer memories of him and Vicky at the lake. And how he loved fishing! The video tribute is just awesome!

All my love,

Uncle Jim, Aunt Janine, Linda, James, Vickie, I’m so sorry for your loss. I don’t know what else I can say.

We used to enjoy having Linda, Jimmy and James stop by when they were visiting in the area. I’ve missed seeing them since I moved to Grand Ledge.

Know that my love and prayers are with you all.
