Condolences on the passing of your Dad, grandfather and great-grandfather, the patriarch of the Worster clan. Grieving with you all, especially my daughter-in-law, Brittany, my son, Cameron, and my grandson, Tristan. But we are joyous in knowing that to be 'absent from the body is to be present with the LORD.' Praying for the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of our Heavenly Father. May the Holy Spirit, the Comforter, come to you all and give you PEACE. May that light of the LOVE of the Heavenly Father shine through those that are in our LORD Christ Jesus...of whom the whole family, in Heaven and earth are named. (Eph. 3:15). May you once again smile, laugh and reminisce and remember your joyous times together and envision Millie and James dancing together again. Love, Blessings and Peace to you all.

Jim would come to my deer camp and coerce us into coming to his camp to play cards and we always did! We'd eat, play cards and talk about everything under the sun until late night! Jim was a pleasure to be around and will be dearly missed. My sincere condolences to his family.

I was fortunate enough to have known Jim, and to know the Worster family. Many years ago, as a teenager I had the privilege of working with Jim in his auto shop. He taught me a lot about the mechanics trade, and more importantly welcomed me into the Worster circle.
Over the years I have not been able to make it to Arkansas as often as I would have liked, but I am thankful I was through there a couple months ago, and got to see Jim one last time!
Rest easy my friend, you will always live on in the hearts you touched.
