Dear Carol & family, We thank God for Jim\'s friendship & love over many years. His smile & humor always lifted our spirits. We felt his love always in our Kiss of Peace during Mass & choir. He had a special way of crossing my (Alicia) hand with his big hand. That blessing will always be remembered. Carl says he used to say "Peace, Carl" & roll that R like a Hollander. Such a special man! We feel he will somehow continue to "teach us love" as in Hail, Mary, Gentle Woman. Peace to you all. We\'ll miss being there to hug you. Love, Carl & Alicia

Dear Carol & Family, We thank God for having known such a loving man. He often crossed my palm in blessing at the Sign of Peace during Mass. Carl says he had a way of saying "Peace, Carl" & roll the R like a Hollander. We\'ll miss his love & humor. I feel he\'ll somehow find a way to continue to "teach us love" as in Hail, Mary, Gentle Women. May you all find peace as I\'m sure he has. Love, Carl & Alicia

I was saddened to hear that Mr. Lamers passed away. I was so looking forward to working with him again. I met him only once as a prospect in the network business but found he was kind, concerned, respectful, knowledgeable, and caring. May God be with his family and friends to comfort and assure. I am confident he is in Paradise receiving his just reward.

To know Jim, is to know what an awesome God we have. Jim\'s life is to be celebrated. He is a messenger of God whose message has already touched thousands of lives and will continue to grow. He lived life large. Through all of this, Jim and Carol wore their courage like sunshine. We all continue to bask in the warmth of their light. Oh how Jim loved children. My boys would draw pictures of him when he wasn’t around and climb on him like a tree when he was. During one visit, my 6 yr old son was getting so loud that I was prepared to kick him out of the house. (After all, we had a visitor.) When I entered the room, it was Jim hanging my son Ryan upside down. Had to kick\'em both out. More than anything, Jim loved to laugh. During his last visit we were late for nearly all our appointments. We kept missing our turns because Jim kept us entertained with story after story. We laughed until we cried. That is the Jim we know and love. To Jim I dedicate the spirited song by Seals and Croft “I’ll Play For You.” “. . . Let this night go on forever. Don’t you ever stop the music, let your spirit set you free . . .” Always your Diamond Girl, Kris
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

We loved Jim very much. We know God is giving you strength. We love all of you. God bless you. We have many good memories of him, His little games he played with people. Remember the one on our anniversary? At Mass this morning I could almost hear him singing behind me. We will miss him in our choir..He was a big man and had a heart to match.

Sometimes life\'s realities are incomprehensible and hard to absorb. This is one such moment. To know Jim is to know first hand the love of God. What an incredible man! What an incredible faith! Always a smile, always a word of encouragement, always positive--that\'s our Diamond Jim. The lives of many, many people will never be the same because they have been touched by Jim, mine included. He gave us a piece of himself every time we\'d meet. No greater gift can one give. And that gift of himself is what we hold dear in our hearts and keep alive through his memories. He will be sorely missed, but his spirit will live on in each of us. We are truly blessed for having known him. Another of your Diamond Girls, Barb
