Uncle Jim ... I never got to really know you, but every time I seen you with my Aunt Artist you were always wearing a smile. She always talked highly of you. Thank you for taking good care of her and loving her those 19 years. I know she loved you very much.

Attending school at Miller with Jim for all the many years we had many memories we shared. One or two of them have been with me all of my life. I thank God for Jim's presence in my life.
