My sympathy is with all of you at this time of your loss. Jim and I emailed and talked on the phone for work. He was great to work with and will be missed.
“Thy memory, my dear father, fills my soul at this solemn hour. It revives in me thoughts of the love and friendliness which thou didst bestow upon me. The thought of thee inspires me to a life of virtue; and when my pilgrimage on earth is ended and I shall arrive at the throne of mercy, may I be worthy of thee in the sight of God and man. May our merciful Father reward thee for the faithfulness and kindness thou has ever shown me; may He grant thee eternal peace. Amen.”
Although I’ve never met Jim in person,I’ve worked with him for several years and spoke with him quite often over the phone. It was a joy to always speak with him because he always had something witty to say or made sure I got a good laugh at some point during our conversation.
He will truly be missed.
Jim was a hard worker and did a wonderful job handling the PLDS account at Ceva Ohio. I will miss him and will continue to pray, that Jesus will comfort and heal the pain of Jim’s loss as only He can do, for the family. My sympathy’s to all the family for their loss.
