Dear Pat, I send my condolences to you and your family. I really wish that I could have come in person. Sorry. I followed the suggestion given in the obituary and made a donation in Jim's name at St. Jude's Children's Hospital. Love, Carolyn (Chapman)

I am so sorry to hear of Jim's passing. My prayers go out to all of Jim's family. He was a true friend and I will miss his phone calls debating our choices of military service. Jim could dominate a conversation with his stories. His love for his family was always present. When he talked of his wife, children and grandchildren, his eyes lit up. He was a Brother to all of us at the OVV. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him. I love you Brother and may you rest eternally. Bob Keech
