    Dearest Sally and family,
    I was very surprised to see on Facebook the passing of Jim. I have such fond memories of him singing with my community group. You and your mother were so kind to attend those events, as well as celebrations for my mother. Heaven has a bright light, and we will rember all the joy he brought to us here in this earth.
    The peace of the Lord be always with you,
    Carlton & Bernard

    Dear Sally: As you know Jim and I were in offices next to each other for about 10 years. Always enjoyed talking with him about sports, music, politics, especially hospital politics. Enjoyed his company immensely, and shared a lot of laughs! Jim always did his best to assist the kids assigned to him. A gentle big man, his humanity will be missed. Rest in peace big guy! My condolences to you and your family.
