    Jim I know you are not suffering now, know your family loves you,your sis Judy


    Jim and I were school class mates from third grade through high school. Never met a person that was a finer friend or Mushroom hunting buddy in my life.
    Always enjoyed our birthday and Christmas cards all of these years.


  25. DonnaJean Dowty says:

    Every time I visted Jim at the hospital he would thank me for coming to see him. It should have been me thanking him for allowing me to spend time with him. This prideful man also allowed me to help him with his meals, even though he really didn’t need it. It help my heart to heal knowing I was there. I Love You Jim, If you see my Dad tell him I Love Him too.

    R.I.P. DonnaJean
