No one can prepare you for a loss; it comes like a swift wind. But take comfort in knowing that he is now resting in the arms of our Lord. My deepest condolences to you and your family.

We were all so fortunate to have Jim apart of our lives. Both he and Donna were wonderful people and gave their heart and soul to all their family and friends. Although he will no longer be here in person, he will remain in our hearts forever.
