Our deepest condolences to Theresa and family on the passing away of James. James was a kind and hospitable person to us when we met him and spent time visiting with him and Theresa. I know he will be sadly missed by his family and friends and our thoughts and prayers are with all his family.

We only knew Jim the last few years he spent winters in FL, but count Jim and Terri as our very special friends. Jim was soft spoken and happy. Always ready to go for a ride, or have a coffee and share stories. His love for Terri, and family was there,in his smile and voice as he spoke so proudly about all of them. It was a blessing to have met Jim and will truly miss him.
