Uncle Jim, you have always been one of my favorite uncles. This is a day that came too soon. I actually still have a small toy bear that I am pretty sure you gave me when I was a small child, when you first moved to Pendleton. I will always remember you with a smile, and will always be proud to be your nephew. I will miss you greatly. With lots of love from your nephew John

I'll always remember Uncle Jimmy's big hugs. He always made me feel like he was glad to see me. I'll miss him, and think of him with both a smile for the good memories, and a tear. I pray that God comforts all those that loved him best.
