Jim and I went through HS and graduated together. He was such a cute, sweet and happy boy! My husband and I were stationed in Japan with USAFMC during height of Vietnam Nam War. Wish I had known of his unselfish service to our Country. I would liked to have thanked him personally. Those were horrendous times. He filled a place in my heart that will remain void until we meet again in Eternity with our Lord Jesus. My deepest sympathy to all his family and those who knew and loved him.

Dear Ann & Andrea, I am truly saddened from hearing of the passing of Jim. I thought the world of him. He was truly one of a kind. I have many memories of him growing up on the lake. I can still see him driving by in that old VW Beetle. No words I say can take away the pain you are feeling. All I can say is that I'm so sorry. Just want you to know you are in my prayers.

Ann, So sorry to hear of your loss. It has been so many years since I've seen you, but my heart was saddened when I heard of Jim's passing. As I recall you and Jim met while you were living just below my daddy in Greshamville--many years ago. Fond memories of you and Jim. Prayers to you and your family. Dianne Yearwood
