Helen, Tim and Family,
Our condolences to you all. You are in our prayers. I had the privilege of working with Jim for many years as our drywall contractor. Jim was always such a gentlemen who ran his business with honesty and integrity. I know he will be missed.

My condolences to Helen, Tim, Cherie and the rest of the family members. I could go on and on about what Jim meant in my life, he is someone I truly looked up to and learned from. His honesty and integrity are second to none. I have missed him since I left Kingman, but I have never forgotten him, nor the lessons he taught me.
