Hello Betsy, Pat & I were saddened to see you've recently lost Jim. It's a little strange that this morning, I'd been fishing on Lake Murray & stopped by a favorite place John & I would take Jim during your SC visits. When I got home, I did a quick search & discovered Jim's obit notice. I'd always enjoyed your visits with John & Eleanor. John was proud of his kid brother & I enjoyed your visits & fishing on the lake & at the prison farm. We know this is a difficult time for you & your family & you're all in our prayers. Take care.

Jim was a special guy, I enjoyed being around and talking with, He was a very loyal Deacon. I remember walking all around town. He was the best trout fisherman I knew, he was also the best trout fryer. He enjoyed life. A lot of good memories.
