  4. There are few people who have the ability to put a smile on your face each time you see them,Uncle Jim was one of those individuals. I will never forget his joyous spirit and the impact that he had in my life. Many family dinners, camping trips and card games, God certainly blessed us with a wonderful uncle. Rest in peace.
