    This loss of life saddens my heart as I too have fond memories of that big loving smile and of a man that was always ready to lend a hand to help. I’m grateful to have known Jim and send my heartfelt condolences to his family that always meant so much to him.
    Jim thank you for always being so kind to Phil and I the years we had you here at the ranch to help us. It’s your time to go be at peace in the arms of your Heavenly Father.
