Jim was a good man. He was a kind and loving father and husband. He was talented in so many ways....on his farm, in his home and the creative projects he constructed for Megan when she was a little girl. His quiet but humorous and caring nature will be missed by all the family as well as many friends. He has blessed each of us and will not be forgotten.
