    Jim was a great man in every way. He was a Christian, a good husband and father, and very well respected. May God be with Kay and comfort her.

    With deep sadness we learned of Jim's passing. I enjoyed my many years in Jim's Sunday School Class. I even more enjoyed Jim's participation in my class and his great insights into the lesson. Kay, I really appreciated all of Jim's stories that derived from all of your travels throughout your many years in the military. I regret that we will be out of town and unable to be with your family at this time. You are and will be in our prayers.

    I (Ken) had the distinct pleasure of working for Jim before I retired from the USAF in 1979. Both Linda and I have known the Marshalls for many years. Our hearts go out to Kay and the family.
