Jim and I had some great conversations while he was in the dental chair. He had much character, morality and confidence. You always knew what Jim's opinion was about any topic. This was refreshing in a time when we see less individuality in personalities. He spoke of many happy times and we laughed often. I will greatly miss Jim and I'm am so sorry for your loss. May you find peace and a healing heart.
Dear Aunt Eleanor,
I just found out about Uncle Jimmy and my prayers and thoughts are with you.
He had such a great sense of humor and how I will miss that. In addition I will miss his weekly emails-they always made me laugh and sometimes cry. I admired his convictions and his patriotism. I agreed and shared his stand on so many issues.
I pray you can celebrate a life well lived and that you will cherish the memories forever. God bless you.
