Linda and family, there are just no words to help your feelings of such sorrow. Like my brother Daryl said about Jim, he never heard him use a cross word about anyone and all the great times he spent with Jim whether it was housing tobacco, fishing or all 4 of you having fun together. Awesome memories, all my love and prayers to you and the rest of the family.
