    candle 8Doug and I first met Jim & Shirley when they joined our group for a Caribbean cruise. They welcomed us in to their family with open arms. Jim was such a pleasure to be around. He had many life stories which gave him great pleasure to share. It was clear that he loved his family and was so proud of them. We were blessed to know him.

    Jim you will be missed by many may your Family find comfort in knowing that you have taken you place in Heaven.

    WHEN I COME TO THE END OF MY JOURNEY,
    FORGET MY PAIN REMEMBER MY COURAGE

    FORGET MY DOUBTS,
    REMEMBER MY FAITH

    FORGET MY DESPAIR,
    REMEMBER MY HOPE

    FORGET MY SADNESS,
    REMEMBER MY LOVE
