    You will be missed forever and always. The times we shared and the laughs we’ve had will always remain. The Husband, the Father, and the Uncle you were will always speak of the great person that you were. Rest in peace

    I worked with Jim at Elba Tool. We shared a lot of laughs during our time as coworkers. We stayed in touch over the years since then. Jim was a great guy. The kind of person you’re proud to call a friend. He had a heart of gold and would do anything he could to help people. Jim will be dearly missed. My heart and prayers go out to his family and friends.
