    I met Jim years ago at the church when I reserved it for a Scout Training. He was a first class guy. Condolences to the family.

    A great man of God. A pastor’s best friend; loyal, trustworthy, kind, full of wisdom. Thank you Jim, for your faithful service to our Lord. You will be missed.

    I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your beloved father. While I did not have the pleasure of knowing him personally I heard nothing but great things about him. You are a wonderful testament to what a lovely man and father he most certainly must have been. I know you will treasure the wonderful memories you shared together. Nothing will ease the pain and loss you now feel but your faith in God will make it bearable. Please trust in your faith. Bill & I are always here for you in TN!

    Every month we mention James when doing our Welcome Pardner mailings. We pay nonprofit organizations to collate, stuff and mail. James ‘ordained’ that we would always get top service since we help the community.
    We are still committed to serve many, and our PO relationship continues to be a blessing.
    James worked with my dad (also at the USPS).
    We later did a few projects together at Quail Creek. Thank you for sharing James with us! love dj

    I had the pleasure of working with Jim at the post office and following retirement we served together representing our employers with the postal mailers council. Jim put his faith foremost in whatever he was involved in and had the respect he well deserved from those of us within his realm. God and heaven have gained a wonderful man and for the family please accept my condolences.
