    I had the pleasure of Jim’s awesome smile, while working at Hickory Hills Alzheimer’s special care center. He was always willing to participate in our activities area. He was kind, caring and loving. He was deeply in love with his wife and the sparkle in his eyes was evidence of that everytime he saw her. You couldn’t help but smile when he smiled….it was contagious. He loved dancing and being with others. Thank you Jim for making a difference in my life. I’m so happy we got to spend time together!

    I am so sad to hear this news. My mother and I wish we had known earlier so that we could have visited you. We loved him, and Sam especially loved him. He was a dear and lovely man and friend. What a wonderful testimony of God’s steadfastness and love. He was a true servant and had such joy, and he brought that to me every time I saw him. I am praying for your comfort and peace.
