Jim was such a wonderful man. I can't tell you how much we enjoyed the time we got to spend with him. He was such a bold man of faith, and we learned so much from him. We will miss his stories, and laughter. God Bless you all.

Mike, Ann, and Patti your dad was the greatest neighbor anyone could ever have. In my minds eye I can still see him with his dog out in the yard and your mom doing her walks. Jim will be missed by everyone who knew him. RIP my friend, you had a good run.

Jim (dad) was exactly where he wanted to be, in his lovely home with all his memories. He was a joy to be around & talk to about the old days & now. He loved his family & was well cared for. He will always have a SPECIAL PLACE IN MY HEART. LOVE, JUDY

Dear Patty, I'm so sorry to hear you and your siblings have lost your dad. I attend Parkview christian church & received an email about your dad going home to be with the Lord. I'm sorry I never knew him-he sounds awesome. Reminds me of the kind of person you always were. Thoughtful, kind and loving.
your old friend, Lori Stokes Mysliwiec
