Sorry to hear of Jim's passing. I saw him at the nursing home in Ft Wayne and we talked about Angola & the Cabin. I used to visit there often when I lived in Angola during my college days. He always knew I was there when a banana daquri was ordered and when you belong to me) by Jo Stanford was played on the jukebox! You will be missed,Jim

We are sorry to learn of Jim's death. I will not be able to attend the service this Friday since I just got GWEN out of the hospital today for surgery on her knee.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Jim was like a second father to me during my days of working with him at the cabin I was able to see him last year when I visited him at the nursing home and we were able to share memories for a few minutes

Will always remember working at the Cabin and the good times there. We weren't co-workers, we were family.

Memories are a significant comfort at these times and I certainly have many.
Sadly I will be out of town Fri. Will be thinking of you and Janie. Talk soon.
