  1. CandleImageHey, sorry for the loss, randomly stumbled across this, he had the same name as my grandfather, whom also was in the Military, WW2 he doped bombs from the planes instead of parachuting from them, he and went to become a doctor, and was a very generous person always wanting the best for everyone. My grandfather and this man are heroes that will be remembered forever. I ended up here googling my name, their is some uncanny names going on in this family and mine, I’ll just say my grandpa, father shares and I share first, middle and last names with the family, crazy.

  2. Dear Shirley and family,
    You are all in our prayers. I feel Jim is at peace now. No more worries or pain. Watching over all of you with love.
    God Bless all of you,
    Jeanne, Wayne, and family
