My dear friend my heart is broke.  I am so glad I had you in my life.  I will miss those big hugs and that smile.  God Bless you till we meet again.


It was truly a blessing for the short time that I knew Jim. He always put a smile on my face whether he was on his scooter or telling me a joke in my office. There are people in the world you should always learn from and Jim was one of them. Thank you Jim for your smile. I will miss you. God Bless you and your family.
