Dear Family,I am terribly saddened to learn of the passing of my dear friend Jim. I enjoyed our many conversations throughout the years when I was running my automotive repair shop in Batesville and Jim and his brother were running their auto parts store. What a fine fella and friend. I know he will be missed by his family and by his many friends. Sincerely, Robert Ford, Jr.

So sad to see that Jim has passed. We enjoyed visiting with him a couple years ago when we saw him out in his yard when we were driving through Concord. He was my mother’s first cousin and he knew all about our family. May God Bless all of you and comfort you in the days to come.
My sincere condolences❤️🙏
