Dear Dawn....I never got to know Jim very well but I do know for sure that Ashy and Carter loved him.....referred to him as their "other grandpa" and they loved sleeping over at your house....
Remember that we all love you too and will be praying for you in the days ahead.

Dawn- I am so sorry for your loss of Jim! I know words can't help right away, but please know Jim was felt in my heart. He was such a nice, gentle man with a huge heart full of smiles and hugs!
I know you'll miss him, but know that he no longer suffers any illnesses and is watching over you and your loved ones from above. GOD SPEED JIM!
