I remember Jim and Sue as bigger than life. Whatever came their way was met with a smile and a vote of confidence in their Savior. Maybe that is why so many were drawn to them, and also why they were able to minster God's love so effectively. It appeared that just about every week they were bringing someone new to church. I wonder just how many people will spend eternity with Jesus because of Jim and Sue's infectious love for people.
Jim was one of those guys that every guy who knew him thought of Jim as their best friend. He never seemed too busy, and always a friend. I look forward to seeing him again.

Unforgettable charm. I know how difficult this time is lean on the Lord with everything you have I promise he will carry you through ... Today this precious man is in paradise... lifting you all up in my prayers.

Sue and family,
My heart is sad learning of Jim's passing, but also rejoicing that He is with Jesus today! I know that when he arrived, and I'm sure greeted by my momma, that Jesus shouted the words welcome My good and faithful servant!
What a wonderful life the two of you shared rooted in grace and love and forgiveness. You loved! I know his passing will bring an eternal ache to all of you. What an amazing example the two of you have lived for your family. I send you hugs and love!
