Condolence & Memory Journal

Whomever knew him was blessed by a higher power. He brought joy to the world. And will continue to do so. A great soul. Too bad Jimmy didn't inherit his sense of humor (ha ha ha ha).

Dear Lorraine,
We were so sorry to learn of Jim's passing. I will always remember that he and I were the only bocce players who used walkers. He was a nice guy and I will miss seeing him around. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.

Many, many memories of our closest friendship during our missionary days in Inchon, Korea. We stayed close while our children were growing up, visiting each other back and forth. The last few years, we kind of drifted apart, each dealing with getting older. God be good to him. He was a faithful follower of Jesus.
