  1. I love you dad. You are with Jesus now and completely healed. I’m sure you are being welcomed by your mom and Dennis. I can’t imagine the joyful reunion you are having. We will all celebrate together one day. God is so gracious and good. ❤️

  2. I know words can’t take away the hurt you’re feeling, but I want you to know how much I care. Sending you love and strength in this time of loss. Our condolences to the family. You will be missed. Rest In Peace Uncle Jim.
    We love you!!! Mario and Stephanie

  3. In later years we didn’t see a lot of each other but as my very favorite cousin we had wonderful times when we were young. Love to all of Jim’s family. Especially my love to Karen and all of the family. Turned 85 this week so I’m probably going to be meeting Jim before long in that beautiful kingdom we so look forward to meeting all of those that we love so much. Love to all.
