It was with sadness that I read of Jim's passing. I know it is a difficult time for the family. It's hard to lose someone you love, no matter the circumstances. Reading his obituary was very enlightening. It sounds as if Jim had a great career teaching and was loved and respected by his students.

May you feel God's loving, comforting presence during this difficult time. With love and sympathy, Martha Jo Wilson
