I can remember Jimmy staying at my place with Chad. He was always respectful. He was close to my heart for a long time. I know that now he always will be. As well as to Chads heart. Jim will be missed & tragic accidents will never be understood by the ones left behind. Maybe God just needed a very special extra-bright star to guide us through all the grief here on earth. Jim will never be forgotten; he touched so very many loves. May Gods blessings be with every member of his family.

I will forever be grateful to Jim. There was a time several years ago when my Husbands mill was on strike. Jim gave my husband a job. Thanks to him we were able to make ends meet and provide for our 2 children. He was a good man and a dear freind of the family. My prayers our with your family as he and Chantel our together.
