Eric, Jimmy, Linda and Family,
The impression of his love and acceptance of me and my family always brings thoughts of gratitude for him in our lives, especially at a time when I needed a father figure. He was that and always will be. My love and prayers for you all, and his life will always be a celebration for me.

We were saddened to learn of Jim's passing. His friendship and support down through the years have been so important to us. It was a joy to know him through church and Sunday School for so many years. We will be praying for all of the family at this time of loss until that certain reunion we will have with him in the clouds when we meet the Lord in the air. Until then, we shall be lifting you up in prayer.

In Christ's love,
Ann & Ed

Jim and I worked together at Acxiom Jim was a good worker and enjoyed working with others. Jim would stop by my office everyday and would talk about his church or the RV road trips he had been on or was fixed to go on. He would always laugh at me when I would tease him about his Ford truck.
