As a former DHM caregiver of Jim’s my heart is broken. He was so much fun and knew how to make you laugh. My favorite memory is taking him to steak and shake for a 1 on 1, and he had wrapped his wallet in a sock and spent half the time untying the sock to get to his wallet. Will miss him SO much, so thankful to have known him.

Jim loved coffee time at church! He always threatened to pour coffee on my shoes! Emma (Mom) would always tell home to stop, it became a weekly ritual. Jim's father John was a mentor to me on church council, we went on many home visits together. My blessings and sympathy to the family.

Jim was our neighbor on Hogan Street. Very often in our younger days he would stroll over with his plastic bat and whiffle ball, sit with us on the picnic table and say, "Betty you want to hear a joke?" He loved to laugh! I am sure he brought joy to many hearts. Our sympathy to you Fran, John and family.

Jim was a regular attender at Calvary Church.
His friends in the Go-Getters group will miss him dearly. His presence was a joy and we will miss his beautiful smile. I can almost see him singing praises in heaven with Jesus 💙
