My uncle Jim was and is very special to me for so many reasons! Like his mother, he was somewhat of a quiet person, not the type to initiate a hug or to say to say “I love you,” yet you knew he loved you deeply, maybe more deeply than most. His sense of humor wasn’t always evident to others as he seemed to be serious yet when he thought something was funny, his face would light up so much so that it seemed to embarrass him. He was and remains one of the most respected men I’ve ever known because of the he always took care of his family and his extended family! He grew up in tough times but with his inner strength and his faith in The Lord, he was and is an overcomer! Love you Uncle Jim!

I have so enjoyed knowing Uncle Jim over the years since meeting Mark & visiting with his family. He was such a welcoming, nice ,interesting, knowledgeable & adventurous man. I loved spending time with him & listening to his stories. & especially enjoyed his pancake breakfast when we stayed in Cincinnati. He will be missed sorely!!! But knowing he is in the presence of his Lord is comforting! Love & prayers to all..
