So sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. Yet rejoicing with him of his home going. I so appreciated all the encouragement he sent several times by mail. I Particularly remember after William passed he sent me encouraging scriptures that lifted my spirit. He was a remarkable man here on earth always walking by the spirit & now fully living it. Sending you Kay, & all the family my condolences & prayers for all of you. Much love, Vickie Lay
