Charlotte and family:

It is in times as these that knowing Jim was a Christian man that great comfort comes! Jim had a special place in my heart that no one else could ever fill. We shared many great times together and even though the miles and years have separated us-I will never forget how Jim shared his time and talent for all. He was truly a remarkable man. I thank God for putting him and your family in our lives. He made the world a better place-now heaven has made it’s gain! We love you all.
