  1. CandleImageSo so sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. He was one of the nicest – if not the nicest person, I had met in my career at Pueblo County. It was so nice when he was in a meeting – or just walking down the hall – he ALWAYS had a kind word. My condolences to his family and friends.

  2. Carol, I am so sorry to read about Jim’s passing. I just remember a very kind person who had a great smile and a calm persona. I wish you peace as you go through this time.
    Sincerely
    Paulette Stuart

  3. I am so sorry to hear about Jim. He was a truly nice person. Our good friend Bob Phelps thought the world of JIm and your family too Carol. God Bless.

  4. CandleImageI’m so sorry to hear of Jim’s passing, and though it’s been a number of years, I still remember the great times we had at get-togethers when we “girls” were in college at USC Behavorial Science classes. My sincere sympathy and prayers to Carol and the family.

    • Pearl, it is so good to hear from you. I have often wonder what happen with you, if you were still in Texas or retired. I remember our Wednesday “afternoons” in Pat’s van drinking beer and watching the young kids on campus. Jim and I often talked about our trip to Red River and what fun it was.
      We were married for 57 years and the time has passed too fast. I sure miss him and we knew he had a bad heart but he always took care of himself and you just don’t think it is going to happen.
      Thank you for contacting me and I hope you are doing well.
      Carol

    • Was so sorry to hear about Jim. We enjoyed getting to visit with Jim and Carol at various events and at Roy and Sue Allen’s dinners. Sending Jim’s family prayers and hugs. It has been a honor to know Jim. Bev and Alan Kochevar

      • It was always fun to have dinner at Roy and Sue’s. I don’s know who’s laugh was the funnier, Roy’s or Jim’s and watch out when they both started. My Jim was an extra special nice person. he is missed so much.
