    candle 7Jim will always have a special place in my heart. We were neighbors for years and when times got tough for me he immediately opened up his heart and home to me. We both bonded greatly when we experienced a very unexpected life event and almost immediately gravitated towards each other as companions we both needed at that time. He was witty, caring, foul mouthed, stubborn as a mule most days, but ultimately he was one of the most kind generous and unjudging souls I’ve ever had the privilege of knowing. I will always always remember fondly of him and I know like in life he will watch over us in death. May the heavens shine bright upon you my dear friend. I love you

    candle 6Jim’s kindness was such a blessing to our family! The gratitude we feel for him is beyond words! He was incredibly spiritual which I take great comfort in knowing that he is pain free and soaring high. He will be greatly missed, but his kindness and light in a darkness will never be forgotten! Fly high Jim fly high!
