I just read of Jims passing. I had known Jim since 1990 and havent met a finer man. I was workshop Director in Crawford County and met with Jim at many of our regional meetings. He was the nicest, most sincere, friendly and intelligent guy. I am so saddened to hear of his death. All my sympathies to his family. He was a great guy and we have lost a very good man.

Bev: Your husband was a dear sweet friend. To say that he was once my boss seems unfitting as he was so much more than that. What a gentle soul. He cared about his employees which is why most of us considered him a friend. He always wore a smile and he talked incessantly about his dear sweet Bev and nephews and nieces. I feel blessed to have crossed his path and shared a short part of his beautiful life.

Beverly, we are so very sorry for your great loss. Jim was always pleasant and kind. We enjoyed seeing him when he would accompany you for St. Peter's events. A friend once spoke to me about the loss of a loved one and how he wanted her back but he would never dream of depriving her of the joy she must now be experiencing in Heaven. That thought has comforted me through some tough losses. I hope it helps you, too. You are in our thoughts and prayers and we'll keep you there. Love you and God bless!
