Memories Timeline


  1. I am sorry for your loss. May you rely on the God of all comfort during this difficult time (2 Corinthians 1:3,4). He lovingly provides us with the hope of seeing our loved ones again by means of the resurrection (Isaiah 26:19, John 5:28,29 and 1 Thessalonians 4:13,14)We can trust this promise because God has furnished a guarantee to all men in that he resurrected him from the dead (Acts 17:31). “Him” is Jesus Christ.

  2. I know that Jim is in a better beautiful place and left this earth a very proud man of the wonderful family he raised and was a part of. He will be missed!

  3. So sorry for your loss. Jim and I were life long best friends. We grew up together and he was the closest thing to a brother I ever had.

He was very proud of you all.
