  1. Dear Linda Whisenhunt and family, sorry for the loss of your father. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. May the many good memories of your dad comfort you now.

    Kathy Williams and your office “family.”

  2. What a wonderful neighbor and gentleman. He watched after our Mother Rachel and for that we will be indebted to him always. We were blessed to have known Jim. His friendship will be cherished forever.

  3. To the entire Towne family – my sincerest condolences on your loss. I worked with Jim for 8 years at Dana. I always enjoyed talking with him and we got along quite well. We often took advantage of an opportunity to give each other a hard time – all in fun. Anytime I run into any of the old Dana coworkers, Jim’s name comes up. It’s been 20 years since we worked together, but I still remember him on his forklift like it was yesterday. I think he made an impression on most everyone he worked with.

  4. Dear Linda,
    I was so sorry to hear that Jim had passed away. He was a good man and an excellant employee. He will be missed by me and his many dana friends. I hope to be able to come to the service. If I can be of any help to you please call. You are in our prayers

  5. Big Jim was a very special person and will be missed by all. He was a dear friend to my husband Paul; and it warms my heart to know that they are chatting and having coffee in heaven as we speak. My thoughts and prayers are with Linda and the family. I know – from experience – there are no words; just know you and Jim are loved.

  6. Aunt Linda, Cousins Beth Ann, Linda and Jimmy;

    I wish so much that I could be there with you. I know how important and special it is to have ones you love and who love you by your side in difficult times.

    My fondest memories with Uncle Jim are the many camping & “toat goating” trips we all made together and the Christmas time visits because he would spend hours with me playing with the train set.

    I will miss him always. I do know that though he is no longer with us in the physical aspect, the spirit never dies. We all have been and always will be a part of each other.

    I love you all.

  7. Linda,Beth,Linda,and Jim, My heart goes out to you at this time. I know how hard losing a parent is. I remember all of the times Uncle Jim would come to McClave and go rabbit hunting with my dad and brothers. Take comfort in the memories that will always remain in your hearts.
