Our most heartfelt sympathies go out to you in this time of sorrow. May your grief be lessened by God's enduring grace. May He take you and hold you in His heavenly arms and comfort you. Although we only went perhaps a dozen times, I enjoyed arrowhead hunting with Jim. He had a keen eye for artifacts and was "lucky" enough to have found some very nice ones. He will most certainly be fishing and hunting along God's heavenly riverbanks when next we see him. May God be with all, Dirk & Gina

Sally and family, we won't forget Jim, he helped us alot when we lost Daisy. There's not a day that goes by that we don't think of her. Bud will miss his friendship, I will miss his quirkyness, The one thing I will never forget is his funny collection of bows... and they weren't hunting bows.  I know he will know what I mean!
