Jim,
You will be greatly missed. You watched over my mom's home while you were awake at night. That meant so much to me. I will miss you, you always had
a joke or kind words everytime I saw you. I will miss my neighbor in Farmville

I will miss you so much. All the times I would come home and you would be at the window and hollar over to me and always trying to help like when you came and put up my pully lines for me. And always had to come to tighten up the rope for me. Your friendship mean't the world to me and I will miss you and having our talks. You are in my prayers
