Now the Angels’ wings pave his way. Being friends with Dianna means that you are friends with Jim. Truly, they are an example of a marriage that flows with love, laughter , comradery, adventure, friendship, social graces, and God’s wisdom. Jim will remain a hero in my heart until we meet again in our Lord’s house to dwell forever and ever. Oh how you are loved.

Condolence from Bonnie Covey on January 21st, 2020 3:11 pm

Jim was my cousin. I met him when we were young, but sadly did not get to know him growing up. Having lived in Maryland, with parents who didn’t own a car, we didn’t get to visit our relatives in PA very often. . I loved his dad, Uncle Jim, very much. He must have grown to be a very nice man. I am so sorry for the loss to his family and all who loved him. I pray for all of you.

Condolence from Rod and Karen Baldwin Blaisiure on January 21st, 2020 6:19 pm
