Papa Jim was a quiet man but lived to make sure his kids had a stable home with a loving father! He didnโ€™t know it but he also provided a warm home for me to sleep in when I had nowhere to go! He will surely be missed and my prayers for strength and peace for Jen, Jimmy and Megan๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป
