Barb and family,

We were very sad to learn of Jim's passing. He was always such a friendly and welcome face on Sunday mornings at Olive Branch. We miss his stories and jokes during the passing of peace.

While his passing creates a void for all of us, please know that he lives on with our Lord. May God be with all of you during this time.

Joe, Lori, Hannah, & Abby Jones

I am sorry for your loss. You were good neighbors when I was growing up. I used to see Jim when I voted in the old neighborhood. I'm sorry I missed the visitation. May you find comfort in the days ahead.
