  4. Linda and family,
    We were so so so very sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. We know he conquered some really serious health issues and the Lord brought him through. But we imagine it was his time to go to the Father and help find homes for all of us.
    We will miss him coming into the office to get taxes and just being the kind and gentle man he was.
    Please know you are in our hearts and prayers.
    If we can help in any way, please do not hesitate to call.
    Paul and Rhonda Kelley
