    Jim was a great guy. Loved his kids and grandkids. And many kids that were not even related. I know he sure could put a smile on one little guys face. He will be missed by many. Love you Jen and Jimmy

    Jenny and James and families,
    My heart goes out to you. You are both too young to lose both parents who were also young. God only knows His reason for taking them. My prayers are for comfort! Keep all your good memories close to your heart!
