I am so sorry to hear that. I was just thinking about him the other day, that I had not heard from him in a long time. We used to joke and call each other cousin. Prayers for his family.

Not too long ago I saw Jim & his wife shopping. We chatted for a few minutes & he told me about a health problem he had. I'm glad we had a little time together. I also recall several years ago at a reunion committee meeting (could it have been 30 + years ago?) he was very nice, a gentleman. Bless his family during this much difficult time. Rest In Peace Jim.   Kathy Alexander
