I have known Jim a long long time. Even before he and I worked together at Legend. He was a great friend and mentor. We had shared the happiest and the saddest of times in our lives. I will miss him always. I pray for peace and comfort for his family and friends.
I’ll miss you man!

Dad, no words can describe the pain I am in. You always knew what to say to me when I was feeling down. You were the best dad, papa and husband ever! Our family is broken, but we will continue to be strong and move forward because you would not want any of us to be sad. I know I will smile or laugh again soon and it will be in your honor. You always had my back and I’m still going to need that from heaven. I LOVE YOU! I will never be the same. RIP daddy! Love “ your favorite child” ❤️😘😢

Dad would always make sure his family was safe, protected, warm and fed. From the beds we slept in, to the blankets that tucked us in at night, to the nightlights that lit up our hallways at night and to the THICK Vick’s vapor rub that he would smear into our chests we were sick, dad took care of all of that for each of us. Thanks Dad! We love you!
