Had the privilege of calling Jim a team mate and brother in Christ for many years together at the store. It was a pleasure to work side by side with him for many years. Getting to know him on a personal level along with playing ball and knowing the family on a personal level was a great joy as well. Jim gave his heart to serving people at many levels! He was always a great example to his team and peers. Look forward to meeting again someday Brother! - Chad Ayers

Karen and I have been friends since 4th grade and I stood up for them when they were married. It has been an honor and a great privilege to have been both of their friend over the years. I will miss Jim terribly until we are able to celebrate together again in Heaven. Karen and kids, you all are in my thoughts and prayers. Hugs and love. Tami

I met Jim several years ago at a campground , Paris Park. We were neighbors there. The first time we spoke to each other I knew we were going to be great friends. Jim helped me probably more than I helped him. We enjoyed our quiet times when only the two of us we there, having a beer , solving the world's problems. He is going to be sadly missed but never forgotten. Until we see each other again, God bless.
