    Jim will always hold a special place in my heart. I loved being his “buddy”, and I’m so grateful for all the good care and help he gave to Mom. Judy, Ashley and Sam, you have one very special angel watching over you now. Love and peace to all the family.

    Deepest sympathy from your cousin, Gary and his wife Terri. I remember visiting Lucy and Frank with my parents, Bob and June Meyer when I was a young kid. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family. Let perpetual light shine upon him.

  8. I am so very sorry for your loss of Jim, even though I didn’t get to know him personally. Losing a dear loved one in death can be very distressing to go through. But the Bible can be of great comfort to us during these times. At Acts 24:15 it says,”There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteousness and the unrighteous.” Very soon our loved ones will be resurrected and we will see them again!
