I’m so sorry for your loss. I enjoyed seeing Jim at Altercare every week. He was always telling me about his “girls”. He was proud of them. And his dream to get out and work on the farm again. I will miss him not being there to talk with anymore. “Now you are on the biggest and best farm Jim!”

I enjoyed seeing Jim stop by the house. What a fun guy to be around. He always treated me well and had a smile to share. He will be missed. My prayers go out to the family.
