  1. Please know that your family is being lifted up in prayer by us and many of our church family at Good Samaritan.

  2. Judy and family … Paul and I were both shocked and saddened when receiving the news of Jim’s passing. I wasn’t even aware of Jim being ill. It seems like only a couple of days ago, we saw him in the front yard smiling and waving as he always did. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time. You have been wonderful family friends and neighbors for a very long time. Jim will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him. Sincerely…
