    Both you & Jim are special folks. Charli & Jacob’s reactions to my calls to them about Jim’s passing is proof positive of how Jim & you have affected our children’s lives. Things mentioned were times on the golf course of course; in general fond memories and special moments of their adolescent years around you both. Jim will be missed. Love, Donna & Butch

    I will miss you for the rest of my life Grandpa. This wasn’t to have happened. I don’t want to live without you. You were still so young, and before the last 7 months, so full of life. You didn’t deserve to have this struggle. I wish a day of it never happened. I am working on my anger from it. I was so looking forward to seeing you in April. I’m so sorry I didn’t get here faster. I hope you will forgive me. I will cherish every moment I had with you. You had an impact on my life that you will never know. Helped me make my decisions without even asking your thoughts. I just knew. You were and will forever be the most amazing man to ever be in my life. Thank you for being who you were to me and to everyone around you. I will miss your voice, your laugh, your jokes, your stories, your love for your day to day; with golfing, walking and playing with your dog, you favorite TV shows, sports (even if I never could follow). Simply, I enjoyed our talks and our time. I will miss them terribly. Thank you for our last visit together with us and the kids. You gave us all memories we will cherish forever. Ethan loved that he was able to golf with you, he talks about it always. Letting them drive the golf cart and taking them on a ride they wont soon forget. I’m so glad grandma chose you and you her. You were a blessing to our whole family. Grandma loved you so much. She and you took care of each other like nothing I have ever seen. She’s going to miss you and need you to keep taking care of her. We will all do our part here. I love you from earth to heaven and back again. If you want to come visit me, you can every day. I will listen for you
