My condolences to Carol, Lynn, Laurel and Grant on the passing of your stepfather, Jim. I do not know where Jim stood in his faith, but I do hope to see him again. I remember the many cups of coffee he drank in Chicken Delight when Jack Denbow was the owner and Jim always seemed to have a good sense of humor….. always recognized his laugh coming from the back table.
Once again, my sympathies go out to each one of you.
Sincere sympathy to the family. I got to know Jim years ago when he drove school bus, and I was saddened to hear of his passing. I always enjoyed and respected his honest opinion and the fact he was such a common sense guy. May memories sustain you all. I just wanted to say, “they don’t make them like Jim anymore!”
