Our hearts are broken ~ saddened by Jim's departure even though we knew it was near the time. He was an inspiration to many, loved by many. His quiet demeanor was his gift. Our many lunches, dinners were always treasured and never taken for granted. What an amazing Christian he was. Loved hearing him recite verses from the book. He loved, enjoyed life so much. Many plans unfulfilled. He'll forever live in our hearts~never forgotten, our brother in Christ.
