SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS
I want to express my condolences to the friends and family of Jim.
I feel the need to share with you my prayer to Jim. Jim, thank you for your military service. It takes a special person to put their life on the line for others freedom!
Thank you for taking Bill and I hunting, especially those very early mornings, and the time when you had a sinus headache not feeling the best. I have a lot of fond memories from hunting squirrels at Turkey Bayou, deer hunting at Bean Ridge, to dove hunting at Washington County Conservation Area and many many more.
I will miss you!
We are sorry For your loss. Out thoughts and prayers are with you.
