Kitty and Ryan - Jim always had a smile when I saw him - always! I read the news on Facebook several hours ago but I am still in shock over his passing. Kitty, I know you have lost your soulmate. Ryan, I know you have lost a wonderful father. I know you both must have a treasure chest of wonderful memories to sustain you, but the loss of his physical presence has to be very difficult. No doubt he is in Heaven - He got there the quick way! Prayers for both of you as you adjust to your new life. He will be missed. Muriel RAmsey
Kitty, CeCi and I share your loss. I'm so happy we were able to connect with you and Jim these past few years. Was looking forward to rekindling our 65+ year friendship. He will be missed and I will never forget him. So long old friend. Lee McC

Dear Kitty and Ryan, we are so very sorry to hear about Jim's passing. It breaks our hearts to know you have lost such a wonderful man in your lives. May all the wonderful memories bring you peace to know how happy he was with you both. We have always cherished our times with you and will cherish the memories as well with Jim. I still remember the Halloween story he told in the back yard when you suddenly had that large hole back there off the patio. Be strong and know all the prayers and thoughts are with your family right now and always. Love Dave and Donna Tebo and Stephanie and Jaimie.
