Wendy you and your family are in my thoughts of late, more so, please know that i believe all the good that Jim did in close proximity will be amplified in his new position. His take on many issues improved my understanding and allowed a perspective that was very helpful. I m sure his friendship and council will be missed by so many. From the elevator to the bank having your husband present was always a betterment to all! Please know that our hearts are with you and yours.

Wendy and family ;
My deepest condolences on Jim’s passing. I was so sorry to hear this. I know through the passing of years we tend to lose touch with old classmates and friends, as was the case with Jim, you, and I. But I never forgot about what a very good man Jim was. He and I played on the St. Louis School Basketball team together and grew up as friends. I later on met you in high school as my parents moved us to Taylorville. When I heard you married Jim, I knew you had a good man and husband. And knowing you for a short time I also knew he had met a wonderful woman. You are both in my prayers as I write this. May the peace of God help you and your family through these tough times. God Bless

I am so sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. My condolences to the family. I have many fond childhood memories of Jim, especially playing basketball together at St. Louis Catholic school. Jim was a really good basketball player. I always remember his smile and laugh. He will be missed.
