I am a church friend of Juanita and John Wilson. I have been praying for your family. My Father had a heart transplant, back in 1999-2000. So you all have been close to my heart for many years. Take care of each other and know God is in control. You will see Jim again!
We are so sorry for your loss. It is a loss to all that knew Jim. I have such great memories of our teenage years…a truly great friend. Those memories will help ease the pain…for us all.
Kathy, I was so sad when Alicia got your email saying that Jim had passed away. You and I both went on after our last marriages to find the true loves of our lives. And they both have the same sense of humor. Thanks for staying in Alicia’s life and thanks to Jim for welcoming her into his. Stay close to your family, friends and God and they will help you get through the bad days.
Love always. you will never be forgotten. we are all going to miss you. nobody is ever going to be able to replace you. Im sorry i couldn’t make it to the funeral i have to go to school, and my dad has to work. but i would have been there if i didn’t have to go.
My Dear Kathy,
My heart aches for you and I have felt your pain these past few weeks. I hope you find comfort knowing that we will be together again with the loves of our lives one day! I’m here for you.
Tara & Chris,
Our sincere sympathy to your family for the loss of your Dad. Remembering you growing up and the fun times we had together with your family. Your Dad was a good man who loved his family deeply. He will always be with you both & watching over your family.
Our love to you both,
Gary & Sue
Kathy and family, our prayers and thoughts are with you and your love ones that meant so much to Jim.

Our thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time.
Kathy and Jim’s family, we are truly sorry for your loss and it is a great loss. Although knowing Jim briefly, he was truly a samaritan. His love for people and those around him is a blessing from God. He will be missed.
We love you
Sid and Frances
Tara, we are so sorry to hear of your loss. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
Jim was an awesome Brother in Law and Uncle. He gave both myself and my son Ryan our first memory of Kings Island & the ever so famous White Castle Burger..I am sad to say that Samantha never got the opportunity to meet him.
Our memories will always be fond with the rememberance of his silly sense of humor..
Our hearts go out to Kathy, Christopher, Tara, Brandon, his precious Grand Daughters, family and friends..
He is in a better place now with my Mother who passed on July 2nd, 2007..I am sure he is making her laugh and will forever put a smile on her face for which we are eternally gratefull..
We love you Jim,
Dana, Ryan and Samantha

He’s going to be greatly missed by so many.I love you Aunt Kathy.
We love you and all of our prayers and thoughts are with you and the family.
