    Prayer for the family
    October 23, 2008 | 08:24 AM

    Blessings and comfort to the family. Our loss is heaven's gain. I consider son Jim one of my dearest friends, and knew the elder Jim to be a very pleasant gentleman. He always had a great smile and a friendly greeting. His influence and love lives on through his family and friends. May his family sense God's presence in this time of loss. They will continue to be in our prayers.
