Please except my condolences. May you find comfort in knowing that your dear one is safe in the memory of God, who will remember every detail about him and bring him back again. John 5:28, 29 gives this assurance.

Jim was indeed a good man. I remember him as a gentle and wise counsel to the youth of Oaklawn. He was also my supervisor when I worked for a moving company during a summer off from college. He treated those of us who worked for him like family. He came to my dad's viewing and I wish I could return the same, but I hope this message serves as some level of comfort to a family that played an important role in my life as a young person at Oaklawn.
