Please watch over us, especially Zak, Please send a bluejay or red cardinal to me, Zak wants a Eagle I pray i did you well for your funeral, PLEASE let me know you are ok you know how i feel about that come visit me, let me feel your presence.

My condolences to Jim's family on such a tragic loss. I got the opportunity to know Jim many years ago, when Kristi's children were young and shortly after Austin was born. Jim and I got to know each other well during that time, and I always had a great deal of respect and appreciation for the opportunity to know him. Jim went through a lot in his life, much more than most people know, and yet he worked hard to overcome the challenges that he faced growing up and as a young adult. Jim admitted that he struggled to express himself and be vulnerable with others; but rest assured, Jim had a big heart, and cared very deeply for his family and those around him. Jim knew he had a wonderful family, and he loved all of you with all of his heart. I always considered Jim a friend, and always felt a positive connection to him even after we lost touch over the years. I am so sorry that he is gone, and that all of you must process this difficult loss. My sympathies to all of you who are grieving Jim's passing.
