  11. Bryan,
    I am so sorry to read of the loss of your dad. It’s hard enough dealing with the death of a parent when you know it’s coming soon, but I can only imagine the grief and anguish you and your family must be going through at this tims.
    Remember, God has his arms firmly wrapped around you and will constantly be by your sides as you learn how to handle this tremendous loss. My prayers to you and your family.

  12. Elaine and family. We loved Jim as you did. He was often the face of our saviour while here on earth. But he is experiencing the new earth in the face of the saviour today. We both rejoice and mourn this seemingly meaningless event–only because it is likely quite meaningful in the big picture and with tremendously painful meaning to us today who feel the loss. If we may ever be of service, it will not repay the service he gave us. Please call on us at anytime. Love, Krazers

  13. Nesbitt family, please know my thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. I worked with Jim and had a deep respect for him.
    May your memories be your comfort.

  14. Dearest Elaine – May God Bless you and your family giving you strength during this time. I know how much Jim will be missed. My family extends our love to you, Courtnay, and all. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Love Becky, Amy & Lane Hudson and Emelda & Hannah Hudson Brown

  15. Elaine – we are so sorry we won’t be able to attend Jim’s service, as we will be out of town. Please know our hearts are broken for you. We pray the spirit of God will surround you and give you peace and help ease your pain.
    We love you.
