Jim was so loved and will be missed so very much. He was a wonderful brother to me and to David and a very special Uncle to my boys.

Dear Marilyn, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Jim was a such a happy and energetic individual with an amazing personality. He certainly was a joy to be around. We recently watched the movie Dream Horse. It reminded me of that time we all went to the horse races. It was a fun and happy day. We will certainly miss him. Hugs from Martha, Mark and Ross
