Randy and Tony, I'm sorry about your dad. I remember him fondly when I used to hang out at your house in high school. He was a kind man and I remember him as a man who could do anything with his hands. Multi-talented. I also remember your mom, very nice and cheerful with a lot of energy and great humor. He will be well taken care of in Heaven. Steve

Vicki and I would like to send prayers and God's blessing to Jim's family and friends. I was able to work with Jim before he retired and then lost touch with him over the years. He was a wonderful guy to work with. Always level headed, smart, and calm in any situation. I'm am sorry that he is no longer with us. Rest in Peace brother.

We had the wonderful opportunity and privilege to know Jim and Laura while they spent their winters in Florida. Jim was a delight to know and we personally had the opportunity to get personal golf lessons from him. He improved our golf game immensely (Thank you Jim!!). What a great man we enjoyed many sunsets and great food with Jim and Laura. We also had the opportunity to met his son Tony and Bill very nice people that Jim was very proud of. We will miss Jim and pray that Laura and the family can endure theses trying times. What a great man! until we meet again Jim, Phyllis and Denny Wilson. May God be with you all in this time of sadness and healing.
