Jim was one of the nicest people I have ever met. I have such great memories of playing ball and just goofing around together. He had a great sense of humor and a very kind heart. I had a great life in New Washington and Jim was part of it. His life will truly live on in everyone of us who knew him. God Bless Eric Kibler
