    Dear Pam, Sara, Mia, Miles and Shelby, and family,

    I was so shocked to hear of Jim’s passing, but Praise The LORD he excepted Jesus as his Savior before hand! I’m confident God took him home this quickly to shorten his struggles with the cancer. What an inspiration this is to hear. I’m looking forward to spending more time with Jim in heaven as I only met him once here on earth.

    I should be home this weekend and I’ll see you on Saturday. May our God bless and comfort you my dear friend!
