  2. Oh dad… I will miss so much our games of domino’s, our fathers day joint sermons, our late night conversations where we solved the world’s problems, late night hot tea, co-leading traditional worship services, your always ready advice mixed with the restraint to just listen. I love you and look forward to our heavenly reunion.

  4. I rejoice at Jim’s peaceful passing. Although I only knew him a short while, I always admired his dedication to being the best father he could be to his son and the best husband to his wife, Jan. Jim was such an example of true Christian manhood and I know Jesus welcomed him with open arms.
