Teresa and family,
We are heartbroken to know he is gone. We knew he had fought and fought, yet we still denied he would leave us all so soon. You know what your family always meant to us. Though we went in different directions, our friendship and love for you never ceased. Jim was one of the best and I know he is happy with the Lord now. Prayers for peace and comfort.
