    Judy, Jim & Donna,
    We will miss Uncle Jim very much. He was my favorite uncle. He always took interest in me whenever we were together. I am so very sorry we didn’t get up to see him this year. You guys are in our prayers every day lifting you and your families to our Father.
    With all our love,
    John & Teresa

    Judy, Jim and Donna.

    I was very sorry to hear of Jim’s death. Several years ago, I stopped at the McDonalds in Chillicothe and ran into him. After all these years, he was immediately recognizable to me and we had a great conversation. Learning of his death has brought back a flood of great memories of our families growing up together.

    God Bless you guys.
