Jim was a great guy, I never heard him gossip about anyone. I have known him my entire 66 years. I was at the hospital when Jim got hurt in the accident Jimmy was killed in and I prayed for him then. I have a smile on my face as I pray for him now he was a good one with a great sense of humor. Jim didn't rust out he wore, out something we talked about a few years ago. Our condolences to Jim's family he was a great example to his 9 kids of how to be. Stephen and lisa Ross
