"Death is something that we cannot sever, but love and memories last forever.." I know that your love one will be truly missed. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy . But in God word the Bible, he tells us about the wonderful promise of the resurrection, found at John 5::28, 29. Look forward to seeing your loved one again.

Jean and family, you have my deepest sympathy and condolences at the passing of Jim. I did not know him well, but what I did know was he was a stand up guy. Always there to help, lend a hand. I was saddened to hear of his passing. May God bless him and you, and keep you and may God make his face shine upon you and give you his peace, at this time of loss. I ask this in JESUS almighty name. Amen.
